Map Notes Update

When I first researched the Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin bike map, I prepared some notes on the routes and posted them on this website. They had not been updated since, an omission pointed out by one of our readers.

They have now been updated and can be seen here. I very much appreciated comments and additions.

New Capitol Drive bridge on Oak Leaf Trail

The Oak Leaf Trail bridge over Capitol Drive in Shorewood is nearing completion. The span was installed Thursday night and the bridge is scheduled to open in mid-December.

The Milwaukee River Parkway between Hampton and Silver Spring is still closed for a bridge project. That bridge is nearly completed but still not opened. It seems likely that mid-December is also a good estimate of when that might reopen.

Probably the most direct bypass in the meantime uses Santa Monica Blvd.
