The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southeast Region office in Waukesha is holding a public hearing to discuss the location, design and environmental aspects of proposed improvements on I-94 between 16th Street and 70th Street in Milwaukee County.

The public hearing is planned for Wednesday, December 3rd from 3-7 PM at the Tommy Thompson Youth Center at the Wisconsin State Fair Park, Gate #5 and Thursday, December 4th from 5-8 p.m. at the Marquette University High School, 3401 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Interested persons are urged to attend to ask questions and provide testimony.

The planned work will reconstruct the roadway and interchanges linking the Marquette Interchange and the Zoo Interchange. This portion of the I-94 East-West Freeway corridor opened to traffic in 1961 and 1962.

The public is encouraged to attend the public hearing to learn more about the proposed improvements and provide input. Project maps and other information will be on display and WisDOT staff will be available to explain the proposed improvements and answer questions. Information on how to present verbal and written testimony will be provided at the public hearing.

The meeting facility is wheelchair accessible. Hearing impaired persons needing assistance may call the Wisconsin Telecommunication Relay System (dial 711). To allow time for arranging assistance, please call no later than three working days prior to the hearing.

For additional information about the proposed improvements, interested persons may contact the WisDOT project supervisor, Jason Lynch, (414) 750-1803, Jason.lynch@dot.wi.gov or send e-mail Jason.lynch@dot.wi.gov.
