Posted on 2-09-2023

The City of Green Bay – Public Works Department will temporarily close the Ray Nitschke Bridge (Dousman/Main Streets) over the Fox River to marine traffic for maintenance from Monday, February 6th, 2023 through Friday, March 10th, 2023.

The Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge is a twin-leaf bascule bridge over the Fox River on Main Street/Dousman Street (US 141) in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is named in honor of the former Green Bay Packer linebacker Ray Nitschke. The bridge was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff in 1995. It was built in 1998, replacing the old Main Street Bridge that was built in 1923. In September of 2012, the bridge was closed for repairs because of rust problems. The bridge was then reopened that November.
