Public Hearings on Proposed Expansion of I-94
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is proposing a $1.2 billion expansion of Interstate 94 in Milwaukee between N. 16th Street and 70th Street (between Marquette and Zoo Interchanges) that will bisect neighborhoods, desecrate cemetaries, and disrupt local businesses. There are real questions about the traffic data that is being used to justify this billion dollar, double-decker highway boondoggle, especially as growing transit needs and local road maintenance continue to be neglected. Voice your concerns at upcoming public hearings. Written comments must be postmarked by Jan. 15, 2015. Click here for more information or contact Elizabeth Ward.
