Kenosha-Highlight.jpg

Kenosha, Wisconsin – 6th Avenue, 58th Street, Friendship Park, & Memorial Garden Revitalization Project:

The City of Kenosha is focusing on revitalizing downtown and 6th Avenue is the next target. The 6th Avenue area is a mix of historic Kenosha infrastructure and new business influence. The goal of this project is to add modern amenities and flare to this historic area while maintaining Kenosha’s strong heritage. The area currently consists of retail shopping, dining, coffee shops, streetcar stops, multi-use residential, memorials, and parks.

Project Specifics: 6th Avenue will be undergoing a road diet for traffic calming and expansion of usable walk area for multi-modal and business use. Utility, roadway, and hardscape reconstruction will bring the project area to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The project also consists of intersection grading, street lighting, new signage, wayfinding information boards directing visitors to highlight areas, park redevelopment instituting a usable space model, memorial area redevelopment. In addition, decorative flexibility is being added to the existing historical lighting through new poles, reuse of existing antique lighting fixtures, the ability to extend decorative lighting from pole to pole, over 6th Avenue, and down the pole. Furthering this development will be the addition of a bicycle parking structure and streetcar receiving station making the intersection of 58th Street and 6th Ave. a multi-modal hub to invite all modes of traveling to this highlight area.

Lynch & Associates led this effort which involves the City of Kenosha, Downtown Kenosha Inc., and many other Stakeholders.

Lake Park Historic Bridge Replacement - Milwaukee County (Teamed with GRAEF)

LP Bridge

Lake Park Bridge - Milwaukee County, WI

Lake Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993, the only such park in Milwaukee County. According to the Lake Park Friends website, it was recognized for two primary reasons: as a designed historic landscape by the master landscape architect Olmsted; and as the site of the Lake Park Mound, a prehistoric Indian mound presumed to have ceremonial significance. The website notes that National Register designation “offers protection from encroachments to contributing components and encourages park stewards to protect the planned park design, its natural features (meadows, ravines, bluffs, woods) and its built features (buildings, bridges, roadways, paths and trails).”Courtesy of urbanmilwaukee.com, 2017Full Article

Marinette Water & Wastewater GIS Services

Lynch & Associates has entered into a different type of GIS contract with the City of Marinette Water & Wastewater Utility. We are going to assist their personnel in creating their GIS system, equip them with necessary tools to perform their GIS services on their own, and put them in control of their own GIS capabilities. Their staff has expressed interest in learning, the management has expressed the willingness to equip them, and Lynch & Associates is going to provide them the training they need to run their system. This is a cheaper, more efficient way for utilities to get their GIS up and running using staff and assets already owned by the utility. This equals cost savings, a well rounded staff, and a team that is second to none in delivering services to their customers. We are proud to be providing this service to them.
