I-794 Lakefront Gateway
This unique, collaborative project between the City of Milwaukee, the State of Wisconsin, and Milwaukee County improves connections to Milwaukee’s lakefront, the downtown area, and the Historic Third Ward.In addition to making it easier to get around, the project creates more developable property south of East Clybourn Street, an area that was vacated due to recent roadway realignments. In addition to preliminary and final design, the project involved an extensive public involvement program with a series of meetings, a community advisory committee, one-on-one meetings, presentations, and extensive coordination with many varied stakeholders.
The realignment of Lincoln Memorial Drive ramps and associated street improvements within the Lake interchange was led by GRAEF’s transportation experts and included a significant contribution from the landscape architecture group. Concepts developed included improvements to the roadway infrastructure, urban park enhancements, and creation of the Gateway Plaza.
