Supervisor Taylor Welcomes The Opening of the New Drexel Interchange
New interchange to help create additional economic development in the area
Milwaukee County Supervisor Steve F. Taylor attended the ribbon cutting ceremony today that officially opened the newly-constructed Drexel Interchange to traffic in Oak Creek.
“This is a very positive development for the City of Oak Creek and surrounding communities as the new interchange will not only allow its residents easier access to I-94 but it will also encourage additional economic growth in the area,” said Supervisor Taylor. “Economic development is one of our top priorities, and construction of this interchange makes us more attractive to do business with.”
Governor Scott Walker attended the groundbreaking ceremony, which was held in May of this year.
The Drexel Interchange is the first new interchange to be constructed in Milwaukee County since the expressway was built in the 1970s.

“I also encourage County Executive Chris Abele, who attended today’s meeting, to work with the County Board to help solve this County’s problems locally instead of running to Madison to consolidate his power.”
Milwaukee County’s next required redistricting process will occur in 2020, following the federal decennial census.
“This decision flies in the face of the principles of the good stewardship of taxpayer dollars.”
“This is a common-sense measure that will help to restore faith and transparency in Milwaukee County’s redistricting procedure.”
