When the Marquette Interchange in downtown Milwaukee was being rebuilt…

November 28th, 2008

…you could still head north and south on Highway 45.

Does anyone have any idea how traffic will go east and west while the Zoo interchange is being reconstructed?

    Sounds like they are going to widen the whole thing, taking out a bunch of houses and part of the zoo, so I assume (hope) that they will build the new lanes first and will be able to move through traffic onto the newly created lanes.

    Elliot, you could still head north on the Marquette while it was being redone; they never completely closed off north-south traffic on the interchange while they were redoign it.

    We’ll build a “temporary” rail system to help ease the pain while the freeway is being reconstructed. Done! Do I get a prize for having the best idea ever?

    By the way, did you ever try to drive from say the airport to West Allis (at about State Fair Park) during the Marquette construction? That wasn’t quite as easy.

    And if you think this is bad, you should see what the lunatics south of the state line are up to for the next two years.

    Uh oh. Elliot, didn’t you get the letter from the DOT? You’d better hurry and get your spare wheelchair out of the drive in about 3…2…1…
