Project update (March 2014)
A business outreach meeting was held on March 3, 2014, to discuss temporary access issues and local business concerns. View the meeting minutes
WIS 241 (S. 27th St.), West Howard Ave. to 500 feet north of Dakota St., in the city of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County.
The project will consist of removing the existing pavement and reconstructing with concrete pavement. Each 36-foot roadway will be widened by two feet to provide a bicycle accommodation. Bike lanes will not be marked, except from Oklahoma Avenue north to the Union Pacific Rail Road Bridge. New curb and gutter, driveway approaches and sidewalk will be constructed at most locations. Storm sewer inlets will be replaced.
Various improvements will include: decorative crosswalks at West Morgan Avenue, West Oklahoma Avenue, the Kinnickinnic River Parkway and West Howard Avenue. Landscaping, planting and traffic upgrades are also planned. The bridge over the Kinnickinnic River will be rehabilitated and the culvert under West Loomis Road intersection will be repaired. West Loomis Road will also be reconstructed from South 27th Street to a point approximately 450 feet west of South 27th Street with this project during the first stage.
Promote your business during construction
The need for repairs in this area has been under consideration for a few years. The existing pavement is deteriorating and there is a severe rutting, rippling and shoving at bus stop locations. Severe reflective cracking is present throughout the entire length of the project. The underlying concrete base is heaving at several locations. The bridge over the Kinnickinnic River is in need of rehabilitation, as well as the culvert under the West Loomis Road intersection.
March to late fall 2014. Some minor work will be completed throughout spring and summer 2015.
There will be one lane of traffic in each direction during construction. There will be no on street parking along south 27th street during the construction period. The west side of the median will be done first, then traffic will switch over, and the east side will be done.
