KRAKOW — Construction was expected to begin Monday to replace the state Highway 32 bridge over the Pensaukee River in Krakow. Work on the $918,921 project is scheduled to finish in November. The highway will be closed and detoured during construction.

Pheifer Brothers Construction of Neenah is the prime contractor.

The project will replace the structure over the Pensaukee River with a new bridge and retaining walls. Workers will also replace a wing wall on a box culvert and conduct concrete surface repair on another box culvert. Other construction elements under this contract include excavating, grading, asphalt paving, beam guard and signage.

The Department of Transportation detour route for northbound Highway 32 will follow Highway 29 to 117 to 22 and back to 32. The detour for southbound Highway 32 follows Highway 22 to 117 to 29 and back to 32.

The department notes that state detour routes are typically for long-haul trucks. Local drivers may find shorter routes using local or county roads.
