An Unnecessary Project With Irreversible Damage To Our Community
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WISDOT) is considering a $1.2 billion widening of Interstate 94 Between N. 16th Street and 70th Street (between Marquette and Zoo Interchanges) that includes a massive and costly double-decker structure that would have devastating impacts on the urban fabric of the city and push Milwaukee’s transportation system in the wrong direction.
This is another costly highway proposal at your expense that divides our neighborhoods, increases air and noise pollution, affects the environment, pollutes our rivers and lakes, diverts critical transportation funds away from the repair of our crumbling roads and bridges and the transit that connects workers to jobs and prosperity, and brings a dark cold double decker Hwy into our community.
This highway construction will increase the number of children and seniors with respiratory illnesses and do nothing to ensure that those that are unable to or can't afford to drive will have access to work, school, shopping, etc. Some residents are concerned that this construction could bring down their property values.
Final Public Meeting Before Plans are DraftedMeetings on Monday, June 16, and Tuesday, June 17, are the final public meetings before WISDOT drafts their plans. We need to show them that we want safe, accessible and better options.
