Overview

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) are planning a rehabilitation project to improve North Lovers Lane Bridge over Union Pacific Railroad, which was originally built in 1970. About 9,000 vehicles per day travel on North Lovers Lane Road. 

The proposed work will consist of concrete surface repairs to the existing bridge components, placement of polymer overlay on the bridge’s driving surface, resurfacing about 100 feet of the roadway approach with asphalt on each side, and installing guard rails. The gravel shoulder within the limits of the project will be reconstructed. Curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk and bicycle lanes will be considered for construction to replace the existing gravel shoulder when North Lover Lane Road is scheduled for improvement.

The existing bridge deck will be removed and constructed in two stages to keep North Lovers Lane Road open for one way traffic during construction. 

Project Schedule

We are currently in the design phase. Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2021. 

Funding

The bridge structure and limited portion of the roadway impacted by the construction of the bridge will be funded 80% with Federal/State aid and 20% by the City of Milwaukee. There are no assessments to property owners at this time.
