MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee's Active Streets, which closed off roads for walking, biking, and running, is expected to conclude the week of Nov. 16.

The city of Milwaukee repurposed and closed streets without any houses on them so residents could use them for walking, running, and biking.

County parkways and city streets with houses along them were designated “local traffic” only, meaning open to drivers who were visiting, delivering to, or living at those residences.

Now, all of those roads will reopen to vehicular traffic.

Active Streets was launched in May by the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County Parks, the Village of Shorewood, and the City of West Allis. They're now releasing a survey to get feedback from the public on the program.
