Portions of Hwy. 35 to be closed indefinitelyState Highway 35 between County Highway E and County Highway QQ will be closed until further notice as of 5 p.m. Thursday.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) has closed State Highway 35 between County Highway E and County Highway QQ until further notice. The reason for this closure is for the safety and structure of the Big River Bridge, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department in a press release. The concern relates to the recent heavy rainfall and high water.
The DOT and Pierce County Highway Department are taking measures to make necessary repairs. The closure will remain in effect until Engineers from the DOT and Pierce County Highway Department deem the bridge safe for the motoring public.
The traffic detour will utilize CTH QQ, US Highway 10 and CTH E which will be marked as a detour route due to this closure.
