High Impact Paving Project - E. Chicago
May 23-24
___________________________________________________________________________________

 

The Department of Public Works (DPW) will be completing a two-day high impact road resurfacing project on East Chicago Street, starting at North Jackson Street and moving west to North Water Street. This project will occur on Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 24, weather permitting.  

 

Both sides of E. Chicago will be closed for repaving, with intersections along the street open as construction allows.  There will be NO PARKING on E. Chicago Street during this project. Milwaukee County Transit System will detour Route 15 from Milwaukee Street to Water Street between Michigan Street and Pittsburgh Street/1st Street in both directions, starting at 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both days if necessary.
 
While this project will only take two days to complete (again, weather permitting), DPW appreciates your patience and cooperation as we make E. Chicago Street a smoother, safer, more attractive roadway for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists to enjoy.
