MANITOWOC, WISC. – Both Eighth and 10th streets in the city of Manitowoc will begin the process to be converted from one-way streets back to two-way streets.

“Thank you to all who helped make this a reality,” Mayor Justin Nickels wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday. “The next chapter in our city is taking place where we began 151 years ago — along the shores of Lake Michigan and the Manitowoc Rivers — in beautiful Downtown Manitowoc!”

According to Nickels, people will be able to start driving both ways on the two streets by September 2022.

The city has three studies from the past 12 years that encourage switching the two streets to a two-way configuration — the Downtown Parking Analysis by Rich & Associates Parking Consultants from 2018, the Port of Manitowoc Downtown & River Corridor Master Plan by Vandewalle & Associates, Inc., from 2009, and the City of Manitowoc Comprehensive Master Plan, also by Vandewalle & Associates, Inc., from 2009.
