Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.
That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.
And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.
The Department of Public Works, with the cooperation of the Racine Fire Department, has scheduled the annual wash-down of the City’s lift bridges as follows:
- Main Street Bridge: Friday, April 30, 2021, from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.
- State Street Bridge: Friday, May 7, 2021, from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.
Appropriate detours will be posted during these periods. The wash-down of the bridge provides two important functions. It removes debris which distorts the balance of the bridge span. Also, it reduces corrosion of the steel members by removing salt which accumulates during the winter months.
