Highway 16/60 Bridge Over Beaver Dam River New Lowell To Close For Rehab Work

(Lowell) The Highway 16/60 bridge over the Beaver Dam River will be closed starting next week for rehabilitation work. The structure will be shut down for all traffic between County Road J and County Road KW near Lowell. Through traffic is asked to follow the signed detour route using State Highways 26 and 33 as well as Highway 151. Beaver Dam River under the bridge will remain open for water enthusiasts, however some portions will be restricted for the public’s protection. Boaters are urged to be alert and proceed with caution through the area. The $609-thousand-dollar rehab project will replace the bridge deck, wingwalls, and approach slabs as well as install new guardrail and pavement marking. Work will get underway Monday and is slated for completion in early November, weather permitting.
