MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) - A portion of Oak Avenue between Ives Street and Kalsched Street will be closed to all traffic beginning Dec. 3.

The closure will last approximately five weeks. This closure is for the use of a crane to install the Marshfield Clinics’ new patient connector skywalk over Oak Avenue.

No detour signs will be posted for this closure.

Jeff Starck, a spokesman for Marshfield Clinic said the estimated 630-foot long patient connector will provide more patient privacy during transport and is set to be complete by late spring or early summer. The skywalk is a gateway from one side of the campus to another. Work on the project began this fall.
