Ribbon cutting event for opening of the new Swan Boulevard

December 20, 2013

Event begins at 10 a.m. with the road opening at noon

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the ‘new’ Swan Boulevard. The event will feature Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele along with representatives from the Regional Medical Complex and the City of Wauwatosa. The cutting of the ribbon will take place on the northwest quadrant of intersection of Watertown Plank Road and Swan Boulevard.

The new roadway is an important link between the east and west portions of Wauwatosa and will serve as the main alternate route when Watertown Plank Road closes under USH 45. The project itself included collaboration between many stakeholders including Milwaukee County and the city of Wauwatosa.
