Veterans Avenue Open to Traffic
|Date:||December 4, 2018|
Veterans Avenue from East Washington Street/STH 33 to Water Street is now open to traffic. Construction will continue in spring on the East Side Downtown Riverwalk, therefore the sidewalk and pedestrian area on the west side of Veterans Avenue will remain closed to pedestrian and bike traffic. Please note that the north pedestrian bridge over the Milwaukee River is available to access the Museum of Wisconsin Art and the south pedestrian bridge will also be open through the winter.
Janke General Contractors will continue work efforts early next spring (2019), which includes installation of concrete sidewalk and handicap access ramps, lighting, railings, and restoration of disturbed areas.
Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists are reminded to abide by all traffic control signs and devices as well as be aware of ongoing construction activities. Alternate routes should be planned to avoid construction whenever possible.
