The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) are planning a rehabilitation project to improve West Villard Avenue Bridge over Lincoln Creek Parkway, which was constructed in 1955. About 6,400 vehicles travel on this bridge per day.
The proposed work will consist of removing the bridge deck and replacing it, reconstructing about 100 feet of the roadway approach with concrete on each side, and replacing the bridge railings. Once completed, the roadway will have a shared driving and bike lane and parking lane in each direction.
The existing bridge deck will be removed and constructed in two stages to keep West Villard Avenue open for one way traffic during construction.
Estimated cost is $2,460,400. The bridge structure and limited portion of the roadway impacted by the construction of the bridge will be funded 80% with Federal aid and 20% by the City of Milwaukee. There are no assessments to property owners.
The project was shelved in 2013 when construction funding was unavailable. It was re-activated in 2019 to continue the final design phase and proceed with construction. Construction is scheduled for 2021.
