OMNNI recently took part in area groundbreaking ceremonies and ribbon-cutting events for some important projects and thought we’d share them with you.
STH 116, Main Street
Wolf River Bridge and Approaches and Main Street Reconstruction
Village of Winneconne, Wisconsin
On Saturday, October 6th, the new Wolf River Bridge opened in the Village of Winneconne. OMNNI provided engineering design and construction administration services to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for two projects that included over 1.3 miles of urban reconstruction on STH 116. The project included replacement of the Wolf River Bridge and approaches (structure design provided by WisDOT, Bureau of Structures).
New Air Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) Training Facility
Appleton International Airport, Outagamie County, Wisconsin
On Friday, October 12th, a groundbreaking was held for a new regional ARFF facility at the Appleton International Airport, which will be operated by Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) as part of their Public Safety Training Center. This facility will provide training for Midwest area airport firefighters and first responders for completion of their FAA-required training program.
OMNNI is providing engineering and design services including design of the ARFF building and control center with fire truck storage on the first floor and electrical fire control on the second floor; site design for a specialized aircraft fire training area including underground liquid propane fuel distribution system; a maneuvering pad for fire trucks and a small parking area.
Abe Weber, Airport Director, speaks at the groundbreaking. Dignitaries included Dr. Susan May, FVTC; Roger Roth, State Senator; Mike Gallagher, Representative; and Tammy Baldwin, U.S. Senator.

STH 55 (STH 96 – USH 41)
Outagamie County, Wisconsin
A newly reconstructed STH 55 opened Friday, October 26th in Outagamie County. OMNNI provided engineering design and construction administration for the reconstruction and widening of one mile of STH 55 from a two-lane rural section to a four-lane urban section, including the reconstruction of four intersections into multi-lane roundabouts. Due to the industry in the area, design of the roundabouts includes features to accommodate over-sized, over-weight truck traffic.
