UP WI26/60 Overpass
This is a short stretch of highway (about a mile) that carries Wisconsin Highways 26 and 60 concurrently. Westbound 60 turns south, about a quarter mile north of the bridge, then turns west about three quarters of a mile south of the bridge. It is, therefore, a very busy stretch of highway and has been for a very long time. The highway is very narrow below the bridge.

This bridge is designed and built as a pony plate girder, but the excessive ballast fill makes it appear as a deck plate girder.
