Massive Transit-Free WisDOT Plan Will Carve Up Milwaukee's West Side

Gretchen Schuldt reveals the details of WisDOT's double-decked, billion-dollar plus concrete invasion of Milwaukee west side and Story Hill neighborhoods where veterans' graves and two additional cemeteries will be disrupted:

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is expected to pursue an I-94 east-west freeway expansion project that would cost up to $1.2 billion and include six additional lanes of concrete in many places; double-decking through west side cemeteries; additional elevated, overlapping lanes east and west of the double-decked section; and absolutely no transit.
The plan seems to collide with a federal judge's inclination on highway-expansion that ignores transit and its users' needs.

Another lawsuit in the works. Why is tunneling not an portion now. Since when does cost come into play in the Walker world concrete jungles.

Build baby build - right Walker. Now do it out of sight but with transit in mind.
