The Milwaukee County Transit System bus shelters along S. 27th St. have gotten makeovers to celebrate the Historic Highway 41 business corridor.

The bus shelters at 27th and Oklahoma Avenue and 27th and Ohio Avenue feature graffiti-resistant, metal panels with Historic Highway 41 logos and messaging.

"We are delighted to deliver a fresh new beautification concept for bus shelters in the Historic Highway 41 business corridor,” said Tara Cavazos, Executive Director of the South 27th Street Business District Association. “Our organization is committed to moving our vision progressively forward to continue growth and improvement throughout and around our district. We extend our sincere thanks to our city, county, residential, and business partners for their strategizing, dedication, participation, and contributions."

Historic Highway 41 was built in 1926 and served as a highway between Milwaukee and Chicago until I-94 was built in the 1960s.

Route 41 still serves as one of Milwaukee's busiest business corridors.

"Lake Auto Group was happy to partner with the South 27th Street Business District Association on this first-of-its-kind initiative,” said Todd Reardon of Lake Auto Group. “It's great to see more beautification within the business district and our teams were glad to donate our services and be part of the effort.”
