WEST BURLEIGH STREET BRIDGES OVER THE MENOMONEE RIVER REHABILITATION PROJECT

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE-SEPTEMBER

The contractor will begin the next stage of operations on the West Burleigh Street Bridges over the Menomonee River as early as Monday, September 30th, weather permitting. During this stage, the south side of West Burleigh Street will be closed for construction. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on the newly constructed bridge on the north side of the street. Pedestrian access will also be maintained on the north side of the street. The project is progressing as scheduled and we anticipate bridge work to be completed by the end of November. 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Department of Public Works will conduct a rehabilitation project of the West Burleigh Street Bridges over the Menomonee River. The works consists of replacing the bridge decks, sidewalks and roadway approaches, painting the steel girders, upgrading storm sewer relays and installing new street lights from Menomonee River Parkway to the City of Milwaukee limits. Once completed, the roadway will provide for an 8-foot multi-use path on the south side of West Burleigh Street. 

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

To minimize how construction will impact residents, businesses, and the traveling public, the rehabilitation project will be split into two stages: 

Stage 1: The north side of Burleigh Street will be closed for construction. One lane of traffic in each direction will be provided on the south side of the street. Pedestrian access shall be maintained on the south side of the street. 

Stage 2: The south side of Burleigh Street will be closed for construction. One lane of traffic in each direction will be provided on the north side of the street. Pedestrian access shall be maintained on the north side of the street. 

Driveway Access: City staff and the contractor will work to minimize the amount of time any driveway access is restricted. 

Bus Route: #60 will maintain its regular route and schedule within the work zone. Unanticipated stop alterations will be signed to redirect passengers as needed. 

Parking: On-street parking is not allowed. 

Construction Hours: Work is allowed from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
