The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) says it won't include a transit component in the $1.7 billion Zoo Interchange widening and rebuilding plan.
But toxic storm water runoff ponds...on the Milwaukee County Grounds, filled wetlands, and on top of a bike trail and Monarch Butterfly habitat...to be maintained by County taxpayers as part of the plan:
WisDOT says "yes' to that.
Preservationists say "no," and urge attendance and comments at the two public meetings set for the plan on Tuesday and Wednesday.
