BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) – The Webster Avenue Bridge will open to traffic on Saturday, Oct. 29.

The bridge has been closed since July 18 for reconstruction.

Crews removed the old bridge built in 1952 and replaced it with a single span, concrete girder bridge.

The bridge links De Pere, State Highway 172, and the City of Green Bay. It carries an average of 14,000 vehicles per day, according to Brown County Public Works.

The project cost $1.39 million.

A Webster Avenue Bridge Celebration will be held Oct. 29, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Schroeder’s Flowers parking lot. There will be food, music, and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
