OVERVIEW

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works and State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation are planning a project to replace the West Calumet Bridge Over the Little Menomonee River. The existing bridge was built in 1937 and the bridge deck was replaced in 1988. Around 1,700 vehicles travel on this local roadway per day. The proposed work will consist of completely removing the structure and replacing it with a four box culvert bridge, and reconstructing the roadway approach. The new bridge will be 46 feet in length and 50 feet wide, providing two 12-foot driving lanes and an 8-foot shoulder.

During construction, West Calumet Road will be closed to through traffic between North 91st Street and West Everts Street. Local access will be maintained to abutting properties. 

FUNDING

Estimated cost of the project is $1,437,500. State aid will pay for 80% of the cost. The City will pay for the remaining 20%. No assessments to property owners are currently anticipated as part of this project.
