Supervisor Taylor Welcomes The Opening of the New Drexel Interchange

New interchange to help create additional economic development in the area

By - Nov 20th, 2012 11:02 am

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.
