MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will host two open house style public involvement meetings to provide the opportunity for greater input on the I-94 East-West Corridor project.
“Public involvement in the East-West I-94 freeway project has helped shape and scale this important project. I encourage constituents of District 15 and all nearby residents to attend this update meeting and share their thoughts on the updated proposals,” said Supervisor Peter Burgelis. “I’m glad to see that WisDOT has right sized the stadium interchange to match the amount of traffic, allow for multimodal options, and not overbuild an expensive concrete maze. Investments in our community’s infrastructure are sorely needed but it’s incredibly important to consider all modes of transportation and scale our investments appropriately.”
The first will be this evening, Tuesday, June 14 from 4–7 p.m. at the Tommy Thompson Youth Center at State Fair Park, Gate 5 (640 S. 84th Street). The second will be at Marquette University High School (3401 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee) on Wednesday, June 15 from 4-7 p.m.
WisDOT officials will answer questions about the proposal to expand the stretch of interstate from six to eight lanes and new ideas surrounding the stadium interchange near American Family Field. The public is invited to view I-94 East-West Corridor study information, talk with project staff, and share their thoughts.
