The long-discussed Pennsylvania/Nicholson Avenue widening is now underway … and it won’t be done until early October.
In the meantime, your patience is appreciated.
Some key points:
- The road officially closes Tuesday, and it will be closed to through traffic for the entire length of the project.
- Police will enforce the through-traffic closure, so be advised.
- Howell Avenue will be the official posted detour, but there are obviously other options, especially for local traffic. This includes 17th Avenue/Parkway Drive, which was the subject of a repaving project completed over the weekend.
The contact for construction-related information is Bret Swenson, project leader for Community Engineering & Building Services. He can be reached at 414-313-5940. South Milwaukee City Engineer Kyle Vandercar can answer questions about project design, and you can reach him at 762-2222.
Of course, you can also let me know of an issues as well.
