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.

Project Goals

  • Improve pavement surface
  • Make travel safe and comfortable for everyone
  • Consider bike and pedestrian accommodations
