MILWAUKEE RIVERKEEPER: Improving Public River Access - Milwaukee Area Urban Water Trail Update 2016

Purpose

Milwaukee Riverkeeper is sponsoring a project to revise the existing 2006 Milwaukee Urban Water Trail map to reflect the current state of Milwaukee, Kinnickinic, and Menomonee River access, including the addition of new access points (including the expansion of the map to include Ozaukee County). Project final deliverables include: 1.) 10,000 printed copies of an updated Milwaukee Urban Water Trail Map, including Ozaukee County. The updated map will reflect new access locations. 2.) Distribution of said maps; and a report summarizing the distribution activities and two copies of the revised map. 3.) A GIS database of river access locations. 4.) A recommendation report/gap analysis of needed improvements to facilitate better public access to Milwaukee's rivers and Lake Michigan. 5.) Inventory of existing signage on the Water Trail 6.) Production and installation of additional Water Trail signs, portage signs, and directional signs where needed; and a report summarizing these activities.
