CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- The public is invited to a presentation and discussion on the Cobban Bridge in Chippewa County.

The meeting will be held Tuesday night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Chippewa County courthouse.

Rob Krejci, of the Chippewa County Highway Department, says it's a chance for the public to share comments about the bridge study, ask questions, and provide information that will help the county develop a plan for improving the river crossing. He says the goal is to find the most cost-effective option while also carrying out the plan that the public wants.

Another public discussion will be held again in the Spring, but an exact date has not been set yet.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Chippewa County are conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss a location study of the Cobban Bridge in Chippewa County.
