Bridge replacement slated to begin next week on Elroy-Sparta State Trail

The contractor charged with restoring the Elroy-Sparta State Trail plans to begin work next week on two bridge replacements between Kendall and Elroy, according to DNR Wildcat Work Unit superintendent Andrew Haffele.

Janke Contractors was hired to repair the trail, which had been severely damaged in the August 2018 flood. The estimated project cost is $2,303,000.

Since the section east of Wilton reopened in late September, Janke workers have been working on other sites throughout the trail from Norwalk to Elroy, placing riprap around bridge abutments as well as completing concrete and masonry repairs on numerous bridge abutments, Haffele said.

The trail project includes grading, riprap, concrete masonry, removing debris, replacing two bridges, culverts, constructing knee walls, and site restoration.
