Welcome to South Milwaukee

Mayor Erik Brooks

The New Look of South Milwaukee
We are reinventing ourselves in South Milwaukee, and as we do it, we are proud to launch our new city brand. We have a lot to be proud of in South Milwaukee, but nothing defines us like Grant Park, which makes Seven Bridges the perfect choice to visually represent who we are, and where we are headed. Add in the “Rocket red” color, typography, and purposeful word choice — including a decision to not go with an official slogan — and we have a logo that is uniquely South Milwaukee. Now the fun begins: Showing off this new mark.

Construction Update: Oak Creek Parkway, Nicholson/Milwaukee Avenue Projects Starting June 11
Two major construction projects are set to begin the week of June 11th, both impacting local drivers, bikers, and walkers.

  • A joint project between South Milwaukee and Oak Creek to rebuild the intersection at Nicholson and Milwaukee Avenues, to widen the roadway and create a left-turn lane from Nicholson to Milwaukee Avenue; and
  • A Milwaukee County Project to reconstruct Oak Creek Parkway from North Chicago Avenue to the railroad trestle near South Milwaukee High School.

Work on Nicholson/Milwaukee is expected to be completed by the end of June.  Learn more here.
Work on the Oak Creek Parkway will likely take all summer. Learn more here.

Thank you for your patience as the City and Milwaukee County continue to invest into our infrastructure.
