During the work, motorists will have approximate 10-minute delays while equipment is present and installing the sections of the culvert at Highway 63 in Wisconsin where motorists approach the bridge.

Motorists should adjust travel plans for the scheduled delays during the week by either leaving earlier for their destinations or planning to arrive later. The work is expected to run from Monday-Friday.
