National Ave. Summer Construction

national ave construction
Construction has begun on National Ave. between 70th and 76th Streets. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is leading this project, which is expected to be complete in November of this year. Here's everything you need to know:

National Ave. Detour
The official detour around the project will be W. Greenfield Ave. between 70th and 76th St. Access to buildings on the north side of National will be available from W. Greenfield Ave. and to the south of National from W. Becher St.

West Allis Public Library Access
Library access will be maintained via a detour on Lapham St. and 75th St. being switched to two-way traffic for the one block from Lapham St. to National Ave.

Health Department Access
West Allis Health Dept. access will be provided via 71st or 72nd St.

MCTS Detour (during Stages 2 and 3)
  • When Southbound 76th St. is closed, MCTS will divert their Route 76 on 76th ST. to use the established 70th/68th St. route.
  • Route 76 will be detoured to 70th/68th for the southbound direction only as follows: 76th to Greenfield to 70th to Mitchell to 68th to Becher to 76th again.

Stages 2 & 3

Stage 2 (beginning late August, 2018):

National Ave. will remain closed to traffic between 70th and 76th. As of Aug. 31, a new restriction will be in place where 76th St. will only be open for northbound 76th St. traffic while work is done in the intersection of 76th and National.

Southbound traffic on 76th St. will be detoured via Greenfield Ave. to 84th St. to Becher St. and back to 76th St.

Access to the library will remain unchanged in Stage 2, with the current detour to 75th and Lapham St. remaining in effect.

Stage 3
Detours will take effect a few weeks after Stage 2 National Ave. remains closed to traffic between 70th and 76th and only northbound traffic on 76th St. will continue to be allowed through the intersection.

National Ave. will be briefly closed between 77th and 76th. Southbound traffic on 76th St. will continue to be detoured via Greenfield to 84th to Becher St. At this point, 75th St. will be briefly closed and access to the library will be provided on the new National Ave. pavement between 76th and 75th St. while 75th St. is completed.
