About the project
- Remove the bridge over Sulphur Lake in Morton
- Remove bridge abutments down to the ground line, then cover with stone riprap to minimize ground disturbance
- Remove old pavements and cover with topsoil and seeded to restore to a natural condition
- Retain a short section of the old roadway and convert to gravel to connect the Sulphur Lake site with the DNR river access parking area
- Learn more about the Sulphur Lake historic bridge.
Drivers on Hwy 19, and people walking and biking through the park, are asked to use caution and watch for heavy equipment and crews entering and exiting the demolition area.

- Crews have been removing old pavements this spring; however, wet weather has impeded progress at times.
- Once old pavements are removed, the site will be restored to a natural state.
