OVERVIEW

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation are underway with a safety improvement project at the following three intersections along North 27th Street:

  • North 27th Street and West North Avenue
  • North 27th Street and West Center Street
  • North 27th Street and West Locust Street

The goal of the project is to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety due to the high frequency of crashes. This project consists of upgrading traffic signals, including monotube mast arms with signal heads over each lane of traffic at each of the intersections. Flashing yellow arrows are being installed for the drivers in the left turn lanes to use at North 27th Street and West North Avenue. 

Additional improvements for the intersection at North Avenue include reconstructing the pedestrian curb ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and re-positioning the median concrete island to be located outside of the crosswalk, where necessary. The project is being staged to keep a minimum of one through lane open in all directions.

The project is estimated to be complete by end of February 2024. 

FUNDING

Estimated cost of the project is $679,000. Federal aid will pay for 90% and the City will cover 10% of the cost.
