State mulls tearing down the Hoan bridge

The State Department of Transportation is thinking about tearing down the Hoan Bridge and replacing rebuilding most of I-794 at street level, according to the Milwaukee Business Journal.

Rehabbing the bridge may simply be too expensive, WisDOT Secretary Frank Busalacchi said.

No timetables are set for the study's completion or when demolition of the bridge could begin, Busalacchi said. He declined to prove the exact cost of rebuilding the freeway.

No word on whether WisDOT plans to add bike lanes to the new freeway.
