Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Last Updated: 11/25/2019

Project Description

The City is planning to reconstruction the sidewalks and terraces on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. between the Capitol Square and the Monona Terrace (Main St. to Wilson St.). The project will include removal of the existing pavers and concrete sidewalk, and replacing the sidewalks with new standard concrete and colored concrete. All of the existing trees on these blocks will also be removed, and new street trees will be planted with the project. The project will also include installation of a sidewalk support system, which will allow for an improved growing environment for the new trees.


Construction is currently scheduled to begin in April 2020 and last until about the end of June 2020.
