South 27th Street completes milestone in time for holiday season
Latest improvements means increased access
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has completed a major WIS 241 (S.27th Street) project milestone in time for the holiday shopping season. The reconstruction project stretches from south of Drexel Avenue to north of College Avenue, in Milwaukee County.
On Monday, November 16, crews successfully switched traffic to have northbound motorists driving on the newly constructed concrete pavement.
Access during the holiday season:
- Most median openings at driveways, taking a left in and a left out, will remain open.
- Two lanes of traffic are open in each direction, north of Minnesota Avenue. South of Minnesota Avenue is one lane each way. (Scheduled to open to two lanes in mid-December)
- From I-94 on Rawson Avenue: Westbound motorists have an option of a turn lane heading north, a turn lane heading south and two lanes going straight.
- From I-94 on College Avenue: Westbound motorists will have an option of a turn lane heading north, a turn lane heading south and one lane going straight. (Scheduled for completion the first week of December)
