Preliminary road work begins

April 7, 2009

Although it was not planned, two major east-west thoroughfares will be worked on this year.

Preliminary work began yesterday for the Brown Deer Road reconstruction project that will get under way in a couple of weeks.

The state project will run from Interstate 43 west to about Green Bay Avenue, which includes River Hills and Brown Deer.

Westbound traffic likely will be diverted to the eastbound lanes starting the week of April 20. Traffic in both directions will share the eastbound side of the street.

Meanwhile, crews will work on the westbound lanes, which are expected to be completed at the end of July. Then traffic in both directions will be moved to the westbound lanes while the eastbound side is redone.

The project is slated to be finished Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Drivers choosing to use Good Hope Road to escape the construction on Brown Deer Road will be able to do so until early July, when Milwaukee County will begin a resurfacing project. The project, to extend from Port Washington Road west to the Milwaukee River, which includes River Hills and Glendale. The Good Hope project is slated to be finished at the end of October.
