Milwaukee Record: 'The I-94/Stadium Interchange project is improving. But its future remains uncertain'
The public hearing on the billion-dollar mega-project has been pushed back to December — after the election.
The Recombobulation Area is a six-time Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
For this week’s column, I went to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s latest public involvement meeting on the I-94 East-West corridor and the Stadium Interchange.
Since additional review began a year ago, this project has certainly improved. The public process is making this proposed expansion much better than previous iterations of proposed I-94 widenings. But the “Fix at Six” option coming from highway expansion opponents is still a better choice.
