Grove Street Bridge West


The east approach

This is how you see the bridge as you leave the cemetery. It appears that there is a causeway that was poured between the Grove Street Bridges across a backwater of the Oconomowoc River.

Bridge over Oconomowoc River - West Channel on Grove Street in Oconomowoc
Oconomowoc, Waukesha County, Wisconsin
Open to traffic
Built 1917; rehabilitated 1997
This appears to have been a Warren pony truss with a continuous top chord. When the bridge was rebuilt as a flat slab, the original trusses were reinstalled as decorative railings.
The trusses appear to be virtual duplicates of the lost Range Line Bridge in Langlade County.

I'd slap that west approach across a t-shirt! How would I get permission? (1 shirt only, to be worn by me)
