OVERVIEW

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works and Wisconsin Department of Transportation are planning to resurface North 20th Street from West North Avenue to West Hopkins Street. The existing pavement will be removed, and resurfaced with asphalt. The scope of work also includes removing and replacing curb & gutter, driveway approaches and sidewalk where necessary. Pedestrian curb ramps will be built to meet ADA compliance, and we will consider enhancements to pedestrian and bike accommodations. Drainage structures and traffic signals will also be upgraded.

The City of Milwaukee, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), is scheduled to begin the North 20th Street resurfacing project between West North Avenue and West Hopkins Street. This project aims to improve the pavement surface and make transportation safe for all users. 

Beginning Monday, March 25, 2024:

  • Northbound traffic on North 20th Street, from West North Avenue to West Hopkins Street, is scheduled to close while crews work on curb ramps, concrete curb and gutter, street lighting, signals and resurfacing the northbound lane. 
  • One lane of southbound traffic will be maintained. Northbound traffic must use an alternate route. 

Note: North Avenue, Center Street, Locust Street and Hopkins Street are anticipated to remain open to bidirectional traffic. All other cross streets are scheduled to experience closures

The following work will take place as part of the project:

  • Removing existing pavement and resurfacing with asphalt. 
  • Replacing curb and gutter, driveway approaches and sidewalk at some locations. 
  • Upgrading pedestrian curb ramps to meet ADA standards.
