Michael Baker Jr has been awarded a US$8.9 million contract by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for the final design of the Daniel Hoan Bridge and the IH-794 Lake Freeway in Milwaukee, USA.
The company had already carried out the preliminary design work, under a contract awarded last December.
Baker’s Madison office is leading the project team, which includes several Milwaukee area consultants, and will provide final road and structural design, as well as lighting, environmental, public involvement, traffic, survey and geotechnical services. Completion is expected in October 2013.
The project is divided into three segments, including the removal and replacement of the existing Hoan Bridge deck as well as structural repairs and modifications. The lifespan of the Hoan Bridge with a new deck is expected to be 40 to 50 years.
