W. Forest Home Avenue Reconditioning Project—Hi View Drive to W. Speedway Drive (Detour Map)

The Milwaukee County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) construction project on W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO) from Hi View Drive (W. Jefferson Terrace) to W. Speedway Drive is tentatively scheduled to begin in April 2023 and be completed by the end of November 2023, weather permitting.  The work on W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO) will include surface milling, rubblizing pavement, grading, and new asphalt pavement.  A new asphalt shoulder will also be provided for on-street bicycle accommodations as well as a multi-use path on the west side from Hi View Drive to the southern crossing of the existing Franklin Hike-Bike Trail.  The work will also include intersection improvements at W. St. Martins Road, W. Rawson Avenue (CTH BB), and W. Speedway Drive.  

W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO) will be closed to through traffic from just north of S. North Cape Road to the W. Speedway Drive intersection for the duration of construction.  A signed detour will be provided for the closed roadway.  Access to businesses, residences, and neighborhoods on W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO) will be maintained during the construction process. However, there will be times when driveways and the street in front of your property will have active construction taking place and access to your property will be limited. 

Temporary mailboxes will be provided by the contractor for residences and businesses with mailboxes currently located on W. Forest Home Avenue (CTH OO). Additional information will be provided when locations are determined.
