neida will not escape the road construction encompassing the area with the most notable near Highway 41. The bridge over Duck Creek is slated for replacement this year.
According the the Green Bay Press Gazette, the old bridge will be donated to the Oneida Tribe of Indians as a foot bridge after the new bridge is completed. The paper also states the new bridge will be completed by November.
Details concerning the new bridge or it's whereabouts remain sketchy and some speculate that the new structure will be placed in an unwanted area or will not be aesthetically pleasing.
Along with the new bridge the familiar traffic signals which have been a staple at the intersection of Service Road, Seminary Road and Highway 54 are to be removed and a rotary intersection installed in their place. The new rotary intersection is to have in it's middle a turtle design such as the ones at the intersections of the casino entrance and 172 and the one at 172 and Highway 54.
Construction details and schedules have been kept a secret for the project but some details have leaked out. New information that surfaced recently shows that this week some lane closures will occur on Highway 54. The KAMR will keep you up to date on details when information becomes available.
