People working to make Milwaukee’s harbor cleaner plan to install a trash interceptor in the Kinnickinnic River. The idea is to catch floating trash before it reaches Lake Michigan. And the group Harbor District, Inc., won a federal grant to bring the project to life.
The Riverwalk combines public access, working waterfront, and ecological function.
Harbor District, Inc. works to revitalize Milwaukee’s industrial waterfront into a vibrant, welcoming, and healthy district. The length of the Riverwalk will include abandoned rail bridges and rights of way, active boatyards and slips, restored wetlands, and public amenities such as kayak launches and play areas.
