Wauwatosa/Milwaukee construction project will impact traffic along N. 100th St.

Milwaukee Alderman Jim Bohl noted that residents of the Cloisters Northwest condominiums and other single- and multi-family homes in the area will be impacted by this project.

Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, August 21, work will begin on a concrete road reconstruction project in Wauwatosa and Milwaukee that will create a significant traffic disruption along N. 100th St. between W. Grantosa Dr. and W. Ruby Ave. That segment of road has been the site of a substantial sewer project for several months. For the duration of the project through its anticipated completion in mid-October, that stretch of roadway will be reduced to one-way traffic moving northbound only.

Milwaukee Alderman Jim Bohl noted that residents of the Cloisters Northwest condominiums and other single- and multi-family homes in the area will be impacted by this project. The one-way traffic will also affect the traffic patterns of students, parents and staff arriving at or departing Divine Savior Holy Angels (DSHA) High School and Milwaukee Lutheran High School at the beginning and end of the school day. The change will particularly impact DSHA visitors, who will only be able to approach the school on N. 100th St. from the south at Grantosa Dr., and will only be able to leave the school in a northbound direction.

In spite of the change in traffic direction, the City of Wauwatosa Engineering Division said that access to parking lots and residences on N. 100th St. will be maintained throughout the project. The City of Wauwatosa is managing the project, and will be maintaining two-way traffic between W. Glendale Ave. and W. Hampton Ave.

With a construction project already reducing traffic to one lane in each direction on nearby W. Capitol Dr., Alderman Bohl said the additional work on N. 100th St. will likely contribute to further traffic delays. He noted, however, that staff and students at Milwaukee Lutheran High School can avoid contributing to problems by arriving and leaving the school via W. Grantosa Dr. and N. 92nd St.
