Clearing A Path Downtown

With five-foot snowbanks separating parked cars from our local merchants, I know it’s hard to navigate downtown South Milwaukee these days. The city is going to help.

You may have noticed “no parking” signs go up in the 900 and 1000 blocks of Milwaukee Avenue on Friday. That is because city crews are planning to clean up the parking lanes up to the curb and remove some of the snow between the sidewalk and curb on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Then, time and manpower permitting, we will continue into the 800, 1100 and 1200 blocks of Milwaukee and finally to the two blocks of 10th Avenue south of Milwaukee.

We are doing this to make access to downtown businesses safer and easier. We ask for your patience during this process.

For now, keep this in mind …

  • Between 7 a.m. 3 p.m. on Monday, there is no parking on the north side of Milwaukee Avenue between Ninth and 11th Avenues.
  • Between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, there is no parking on the south side of those blocks.

Please patronize our local businesses all year long!

  1. That used to be done years ago and it is a big help. Don’t forget we have businesses up higher on the ave .. They need it too. Thanks Eric you sure are trying to make s.m better.

    I think the cross walks around the schools should be cleared. As I walked my dogs today I noticed how people don’t shovel an opening to the street. Little kids will have a hard time getting to the cross walk and it could be difficult for drivers to see thrm. The one i noticed was across from blakewood parking lot/ playground. Just a thought.
