Construction on the Hank Aaron Trail

Posted by Doug Shidell, June 14th, 2010

Here is a note I just received from Menomonee Valley Partners:

There will be a lot of construction work this summer along the western end of the Hank Aaron State Trail.  From this week through the end of September, the Trail will be rerouted from the smokestacks just west of the 35th Street Viaduct to Selig Drive.  There will be a temporary detour just before the smokestacks that routes the Trail along the Canal Street median, then back along the Trail for about a block, and then another temporary detour that crosses Canal Street at the east end of the Derse, Inc. property, follows their sidewalk until Selig Drive, and the crosses back over onto the Trail.

Construction is starting this week on the Canal Street side of the Valley Passage project, and later this summer construction will start immediately across the street for the Ingeteam development in the Menomonee Valley Industrial Center.  Please be cautious in this area since there will be a lot of construction activity here.  By the end of the year, the Valley Passage will be open as a trailhead in the Silver City neighborhood and the Trail will extend west to 94th Place.
