A 27-year-old Milwaukee motorcyclist died in a crash late Tuesday afternoon at College and Robert Avenues in Cudahy, various media outlets are reporting.
The driver of the car involved in the accident was reportedly a 55-year-old South Milwaukee man, who police said did not yield the right of way.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) completed technical work for the potential extension of the Lake
Parkway. Federal and State agencies have reviewed the Air Quality Conformity Analysis. In early November, SEWRPC’s Advisory Committee on Regional Transportation Planning and SEWRPC’s Planning and Research Committee recommended that the Lake Parkway extension be added to the regional transportation plan. SEWRPC itself will consider the extension on December 5 when the Commission meets at General Mitchell International Airport.

Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik has published her latest eNews update, and it contains updates on the progress around the reconstruction of College Avenue and repairs on Grant Park’s Seven Bridges.
Check it out here. The long and short of it …
- College Avenue west of Pennsylvania is expected to open by Nov. 18.
- The Seven Bridges will be repaired over the winter.
The update also includes some good information on the reconfigured Route 15 bus line, Hoan Bridge bike lanes and other topics.
Update: I just heard from Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik, who said work on College west of Pennsylvania is expected to be complete by December. And be prepared: A roundabout is indeed planned on College at Ace Industrial Drive.
In case you haven’t noticed, College Avenue west of Pennsylvania Avenue is now closed to through traffic, setting up a frustratingly long detour around the airport using Layton Avenue to the north or Rawson Avenue to the south.
This happened in the last couple of days, and I’m not quite sure what the current timeline is for the project.
Of course, work on College east of Pennsylvania/Nicholson also continues, so that whole stretch is kind of a mess. But think of how it will look when it’s done!
I am working to find out more details and will keep you posted. In the meantime, please be patient around the delays.
Here’s a few brief updates on some 4th District public works projects of note …
- 15th Avenue improvements. Work is anticipated to start to on our about May 10 and continue into the fall in phases, according to a memo from the city engineer. With the help of the Street Department, Wastewater personnel have been replacing inlets and doing sanitary work in advance of the construction contract. Also, We Energies has been replacing and repairing gas valves in the area.
- 15th Avenue “stub streets.” The contract to resurface these streets has been advertised, with bids opened April 16. See the advertisement here. It calls for work to be “substantially complete” by July 2.
- College Avenue/runway project. According to the most recent update I have, expect College Avenue to close completely between Pennsylvania and Howell starting in May, and lasting until December. Be prepared for some traffic headaches.
