Objectives: The primary objective of the project was to restore the Milwaukee River to its rightful place as a primary natural resource and recreational amenity within the city of Milwaukee. In keeping with the Wisconsin Public Trust doctrine and in order to create better public access to the river, a series of riverwalks (ultimately to become a single continuous riverwalk) was proposed, running the entire length and both sides of the Milwaukee River from the North Avenue Dam to the Harbor Entrance.
