Work is slated to begin the week of August 8th at the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Howard Street as part of the Milwaukee Avenue Streetscape Improvements project. As part of the work, there will be daily lane closures near the Milwaukee and Howard intersection. Traffic patterns are expected to shift often during the duration of the project. The expected period of the daily lane closures is two months. Drivers should reduce speed, allow extra time and use caution in this area and/or seek alternate routes.
