    Kinnickinnic River at Jackson Park

    The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is partnering with Milwaukee County Parks and others to make improvements along the Kinnickinnic River and within Jackson Park as part of the larger 2017 Kinnickinnic River Watershed Flood Management Plan. Goals include flood risk reduction; improved public safety; improved riparian and aquatic habitats; enhanced stream aesthetics; and robust community collaboration. The team, led by designer HNTB, will discuss the project steps taken from planning to preliminary engineering. Design completion is planned in 2022 with construction to follow.
