The newsletter came the other day, and the Bluemound Bridge over 45 is supposed to be open on Memorial Day. Hooray! With the Wisconsin Ave Bridge closing the next day, the euphoria may not last. That's because all the people currently squeezed onto Wisconsin will now be squeezed onto Bluemound.
Why? The answer is two-fold. One is that 92nd is still closed. The other unconfirmed reason is that Watertown Plank is not as popular as it should be, possibly because of how quickly the road gets jammed between 92nd and 45 going westbound. Let's cross our fingers that the DOT is studying how poorly it is functioning and will be making some adjustments shortly.
