Downtown Milwaukee bridge to close for repairs
MILWAUKEE -- A downtown Milwaukee bridge will be closing for repairs at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
The Wells Street Bridge, which spans the Milwaukee River, will be closed to pedestrians and vehicles until further notice.
According to the Department of Public Works, there is a problem with the bridge hydraulic system, which controls how the bridge raises and lowers.
Officials said the bridge will remain in the up position, so river traffic will be permitted.
