Traffic Alert: 5th Avenue Closure


From the Engineering Department …

The City of South Milwaukee has contracted with Earth X, LLC for installation of a 48″ diameter storm sewer to replace a deteriorating box culvert built in the early 1900’s that crosses 5th Avenue, just north of Drexel Boulevard. To complete the work, 5th Avenue will be closed to thru traffic between Drexel Boulevard and Manistique Avenue, starting September 25 or shortly thereafter. 5th Avenue will be detoured to Manistique Avenue and Drexel Boulevard to 8th Avenue. Signs will be posted along the detour route. The City anticipates a 4 week closure to complete the storm sewer installation and pavement replacement. Parking restrictions may be installed along the route.
