In other Third Ward news, 32 new LUKE meters will be installed in the area extending from Water Street east to Milwaukee Street, and from St. Paul Avenue south to Erie Street and Menomonee Street.
Approximately 305 metered spaces will be replaced by LUKE units, bringing the total LUKE spaces in the Third Ward to 349 when the project is complete by year's end.
