Opening of Robert Street Bridge in Fort Atkinson Delayed

According to a press release from the City of Fort Atkinson, the completion of the Robert Street Bridge reconstruction project, originally scheduled to be finished by August 27, has been delayed for a few days. The bridge will open by September 1 at 4 a.m. in time for the first day of school for the Fort Atkinson School District. At the same time the bridge opens, Main Street will be re-opened and returned to its pre-project conditions with two lanes of traffic and parking along the curbs. This deadline is dependent on weather between now and September 1. The completion delay occurred due to the bridge deck being thicker than anticipated, requiring an additional three days for removal, and the new signal poles on the north side of the bridge are delayed due to painting. The temporary signals in place now will remain, allowing traffic and pedestrians to utilize the bridge, with the dedicated turn lane, and separated sidewalk as designed. Additionally, the decorative lights on the bridge have not arrived.
