OSHKOSH - Work is underway to replace part of a railroad bridge in Oshkosh.
Crews started work Monday morning on the Canadian National bridge.
Because of the construction, boats will be unable to pass between the Fox River and Lake Winnebago this week.
The work is the final phase of a two-year $27 million project.
After it's done the bridge will open vertically instead of spinning to allow boats to pass.
"It's that bascule span that is going to produce a wider and more reliable, navigable channel for boats to get through,” said Patrick Waldron, CN spokesman. “And that will replace two narrow navigable channels that existed with the old swing span bridge."
CN officials say the 114-year-old bridge carries about two dozen freight trains every day.
