Highway 164 Update, And Another SEWRPC Story

The good folks in Waukesha and Washington Counties trying to deal with an obnoxious four-lane road expansion through their front yards and the Kettle Moraine are still in court, seeking redress.

Their coalition update is here.

Keep in mind that when the widening of Highway 164 north from I-94 was proposed, 7,000 people signed petitions against the project (the number of project opponents is now up to 15,000) and turned them into the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.

Those signatures went into SEWRPC's reflexive 'react and dismiss' procedure, and the project was approved.
