*UPDATE* The inspection is now complete & both lanes of traffic are open.
One lane of the Bayview Bridge in Sturgeon Bay will be closed to traffic Tuesday from 8:30AM to 2:30PM. The bridge division of the state department of transportation says the closure is needed in order to complete an inspection started in early July on the more than 30-year old span. Previous to that, the by-pass bridge was closed for three months for a major renovation. The lane closure could be shortened if the bridge inspectors complete their work ahead of schedule. Motorists may want to take alternate routes through Sturgeon Bay during the day Tuesday.
