June 2, 2017 - Work along Broadway is progressing.

As part of the Milwaukee Streetcar project, work along Broadway is progressing. Beginning Tuesday, June 20, through traffic along Wisconsin Avenue,
at Broadway, will close. Motorists traveling along eastbound Wisconsin Avenue will still be able to turn right (south) on Broadway during this time.
This closure is anticipated to last approximately six days. Through traffic at the intersection of Mason Street and Broadway will remain closed. Local
access to driveways and parking structures will be maintained. Motorists are advised to utilize Kilbourn Avenue, Wells Street, Michigan Street, or Clybourn Street as an alternate route. Be advised, there is utility work on Milwaukee Street. Be assured that we always work hard to minimize
the impact of these events, but, if you have a concern do not hesitate to contact us. The project team appreciates your patience during this period
of construction in your area.

*All work is weather dependent and subject to change
