The City of Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WISDOT) are proposing the reconstruction of the S. Whitnall Ave. Bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad, located between E. Holt Ave. and E. Ohio Ave. The construction on this project is expected to start in May 2014 and be completed in November 2014.
The proposed improvement will include removal and replacement of the entire bridge structure, including piers and some approach roadway on each side of the bridge. One hundred feet of the southerly approach and 130 feet of the northerly approach will be reconstructed. Sidewalks in the project area will also be replaced.
S. Whitnall Ave. will be closed to traffic during construction, and traffic will be detoured. The project limits do not extend to any driveway approaches.
