MILWAUKEE - 6TH ST. VIADUCT

Images of the 6th St. Viaduct completed in 2002 connecting downtown Milwaukee and the South Side (Walkers Point) crossing the Menomonee Valley. Replacing a 1908 viaduct it includes an at-grade intersection with Canal Street, and Milwaukee's first-ever roundabout on the south end. The viaduct is seven-tenths of a mile long, and is supported at either end by soaring white pylons and cables. At 80 feet wide it provides four driving lanes, two bicycle lanes, two sidewalks, and features the first cable-stayed bridges for vehicular traffic built in Wisconsin. It also features two movable bascule bridges for boat traffic. The viaduct spans two waterways, the Menomonee River and the South Menomonee River Canal, two major rail lines and four surface streets.
