The East Face
Four viaducts cross the Menomonee Valley north to south at 6th Street, 16th Street, 27th Street and 35th Street. The Grand Avenue (now Wisconsin Avenue) viaduct crossed the river east-west just slightly north and west of here. Just one block north of that viaduct, a streetcar trestle, called the Wells Street Viaduct, carried street car tracks across the valley on the route to Waukesha.
