South 43rd Street Complete Streets Project
"The City of Milwaukee is committed to fostering a livable city through the creation of Complete Streets that improve access to neighborhoods, prioritize the safety and health of residents and visitors, support economic growth, improve access to education and jobs, enhance urban design, encourage physical activity, and reduce negative environmental impacts throughout the city…"
The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works, in partnership with 11th District Alderman Mark A. Borkowski, is studying ways to improve conditions for people walking, biking, and driving along the S. 43rd St. corridor. Potential improvements may include reconfiguring the number of driving lanes, improving pedestrian crossings, new bike lanes, and adding new turn lanes.
- Provide safer accommodations for people walking, accessing the park, and living in the neighborhood
- Reduce speeds and organize traffic
- Supplement previously installed pedestrian safety measures
- Clearly communicate project trade-offs and potential impacts
