Bow Bridge Trusses Being Placed In Lakeside Park

It’s been nearly two months since a contractor completed removal of the historic Fountain Island Bow Bridge between Fountain Island and Promen Drive in Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park. The old trusses of the Bow Bridge were repaired and repainted and this week placement began along a trail on the east side of the park near DeNeveu Creek. Meanwhile a new bridge will be put in place to access Fountain Island and could be opened by the end of the month.
