The Village of Summit, along with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), will be replacing the existing Delafield Road bridge over Battle Creek. The purpose of the proposed project is to address structural deficiencies associated with the existing structure and to provide a safe bridge crossing of the Battle Creek. Work includes replacement of the existing bridge structure and roadway approach work. 

Project Update
Radtke Contractors, Inc., the contractor awarded the construction contract, has indicated that they intend to begin demolition of the existing bridge between January 15th and February 15th, 2024. This is much earlier than anticipated, as the initial start date was expected in June 2024. There will be a full road closure to both directions of traffic on Delafield Road surrounding the work zone throughout the duration of the construction. A detour will be posted for through traffic. Access to local traffic will be maintained to property owners residing on either side of the bridge from Willow Glen Road to those located west of the bridge and from CTH BB/N Golden Lake Road to those located east of the bridge.
