The stretch of N. Hawley Rd./N. 55th St. from W. Vliet St. to W. Lisbon Ave. will be closed to all traffic during high-impact paving work that will begin on Monday, July 28.
The heavily traveled stretch of N. Hawley Rd./N. 55th St. from W. Vliet St. to W. Lisbon Ave. will be closed to all traffic during high-impact paving work that will begin on Monday, July 28, Alderman Michael J. Murphy said.
Alderman Murphy said crews will work quickly to place an overlay of asphalt concrete atop the existing roadway surface. He said the roadway will be closed to all traffic and will remain closed until after the asphalt concrete surface has been placed and compacted. The work is expected to be finished in two days, but the alderman has asked that the job be completed sooner, if possible.
“This project will certainly inconvenience some residents and motorists, but the work will transform the deteriorating roadway into a smooth asphalt surface free of cracks and potholes,” the alderman said.
Persons holding residential day parking permits will be permitted to park within two (2) blocks of the address shown on their permit providing they abide by all other provisions of the day permit parking program.
Questions about parking regulations should be directed to the City of Milwaukee, Department of Public Works Parking Enforcement at (414) 286-8350. All questions about night parking should be directed to the Parking Information line – 286-8300.
Persons with a disability who will need accommodations – or anyone with questions regarding this work – please contact the City Inspector on the job site or call the Street Construction office at (414) 286-2497.
