Milwaukee County/Wisconsin DOT projects
S. 76th Street Bridge Rehabilitation
WisDOT and Milwaukee County DOT are planning improvements to the S. 76th Street bridge to correct bridge deteriorations.  Rehabilitation work will include bridge deck overlay, expansion joint replacement, approach slab replacement, steel girder painting, and median modifications.  The median modifications will increase the shoulder width on the bridge, as well as turning lane capacity for adjacent Loomis Road on ramps.  Construction is scheduled for Summer 2022 and no detours are needed as full lanes will be provided through the work zone.  

W. Forest Home Avenue Reconditioning Project—Hi View Drive to W. Speedway Drive
Milwaukee County is planning a reconditioning project of W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO) from Hi View Drive to W. Speedway Drive beginning Spring 2023. It is estimated to be completed in Fall of 2023. Reconditioning of W. Forest Home Avenue will consist of replacing deteriorating pavement and repair of the shoulders.  A paved shoulder will also be provided for on-street bicycle accommodations as well as a multi-use path on the west side of W. Forest Home Avenue from Hi View Drive to the southern crossing of the existing Franklin Hike-Bike Trail. W. Forest Home Avenue will be closed and detoured to through traffic from Hi View Drive to W. Speedway Drive.  The detour route will use S. Lovers Lane Road and W. Loomis Road.  It is anticipated that W. St. Martins Road and W. Rawson Avenue will remain open during construction.
