The Portage Canal Bridge connects Indian Island to the eastern Jefferson County mainland. View larger map.
The upgraded railing is stronger and safer.
The two-tube design preserves the scenic view.
This safety improvement project strengthened the bridge rail to meet current safety standards.
Construction began in November 2007 and wrapped up in February 2008. Petersen Brothers, Inc. was the contractor for the project.
Strengthened rail posts, additional guardrail and new guardrail terminals make this bridge safer for motorists.
