OVERVIEW

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation are proposing a safety improvement project for the intersection of North 76th Street and West Hampton Avenue, which was constructed in 1954. An average of 45,300 vehicles travel through this intersection every day. Between 2013 and 2017, 114 crashes were reported at or near the intersection. The goal of the project is to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety due to the high frequency of crashes. 

This project consists of upgrading signals and making geometric improvements. The north and south medians will be reconstructed to provide a positive offset for left turning vehicles. The median openings on the east and west legs of the intersection will be closed and have standard tapers installed. Pavement markings will be upgraded to include right turn lanes and edge lines. The pedestrian ramps will be upgraded to current ADA standards and the right turn bypass lanes on the southwest and northeast corners will be removed. The project will be staged to keep a minimum of one through lane open in all directions.

FUNDING

Estimated cost of the project is $680,000. Federal aid will pay for 90% and the City will cover 10% of the cost.
