McKinley Flushing Channel Reconstruction

Presentation & Public Comment (closed)

Consultants recently completed an engineering study of the McKinley Flushing Channel, which is in a state of significant deterioration and in need of rehabilitation. The channel currently serves as a navigation way, provides dockage and serves boating operations at the Milwaukee Yacht Club.

A project team is developing plans for reconstructing the channel walls, envisioned as primarily steel sheet pile with a concrete cap and railings. A portion of the historic channel walls will be reconstructed to tie into the headwall of the channel reconstructed by MMSD in 1996. A walkway along the west side of the channel will provide a connection to the McKinley Marina walkway system.
