West Burleigh Street Bridge over the Menomonee River
Details about the City of Milwaukee's bridge project and when to expect a lane closure
The City of Milwaukee will be replacing the bridge decks, sidewalks, roadway approaches, upgrading storm sewer relays, and installing new street lights near the bridge over the Menomonee River. You can expect Burleigh St. to be reduced to one lane for several weeks near this bridge. This project starts in May and will be completed in November 2019.
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.
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
