It's important that everyone take steps to reduce the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Find out more about COVID-19 in Milwaukee County, WI.
We want to know what you think! Take 5-minutes to tell give us your feedback by February 1.
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is partnering with the City of Milwaukee and City of Wauwatosa to make flood risk reduction improvements along the Menomonee River in Western Milwaukee along West State Street between North 60 Street and USH 175. For more information about the project visit the Western Milwaukee Phase 2B Flood Risk Reduction Project page.
Today we want your feedback about an improved trail at Doyne Park and a plaque for the Menomonee River floodwall!
1. Doyne Park Trail
As part of this project we will be restoring a portion of the south bank on the Menomonee River in Doyne Park (See map below). This will include a gravel trail along the river.
Along the trail we have the option to add limestone block resting areas (examples shown in photos below).

Example Council Ring Formerly in Hart Park
2. Menomonee River Floodwall
A floodwall (a wall made of concrete that holds back floodwaters during heavy rains) will be built where there is limited space between the railroad and the river as part of this project (see proposed floodwall location here).
The concrete imprinting of the floodwall will look similar to the current Works Progress Administration (WPA) walls in the area. We have the option of including a 4ft long plaque along the floodwall in visible areas such as under the Hawley Road bridge and across the river from Doyne Park.
