Pavement resurfacing set for Monday and Tuesday along Wisconsin Ave.

NOW: Pavement resurfacing set for Monday and Tuesday along Wisconsin Ave.

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Heads up if your travels take you along Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee Monday and Tuesday. 

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works will conduct a high impact paving project on West Wisconsin Avenue from North Water to North 10th streets beginning Monday, weather permitting.

"You know it was a little rough, and it was definitely showing some wear," Dave Steinbock said. "Some large potholes were starting to pop up, and it was time for a little bit of repaving. 

The project will take place over two days to minimize impact for businesses, residents, and the traveling public during construction. We anticipate work to conclude each day before the afternoon commute. The proposed schedule is as follows:

Monday, June 10: Starting at 6:00 a.m., the contractor will close West Wisconsin Avenue at North Water Street. Closing one to two blocks at a time, the rolling closure will head west toward North 5th Street. Crews will mill the existing pavement and resurface the road immediately. Once pavement markings are done, that portion of the roadway will re-open to traffic.

Tuesday, June 11: Starting at 6:00 a.m., the contractor will close West Wisconsin Avenue at North 6th Street. Closing one to two blocks at a time, the rolling closure will head west toward North 10th Street. Crews will mill the existing pavement and resurface the road immediately. Once pavement markings are done, that portion of the roadway will re-open to traffic.

All north-southbound traffic will be maintained throughout the project.

Drivers should plan ahead and use an alternate route during these closures. Michigan Ave. and Kilbourn Ave. are a couple possible routes.
