The Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin will host a meeting, The Future of SE Wisconsin Transportation and Its Busiest Interchange, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Feb. 4 at the Medical College of Wisconsin – Alumni Center, 8701 Watertown Plank Road, Milwaukee.
The Zoo Interchange provides connections between I-94, I-894 and U.S. 45 in western Milwaukee County near the Milwaukee County Zoo. Built in 1963, it’s the busiest interchange in Wisconsin with more than 350,000 vehicles using it daily.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is replacing three interchange bridges and studying other possible changes to meet future needs.
What does the Zoo Interchange situation tell us about the transportation system in the region and the state? And how will state funding challenges impact those systems? The Feb. 4 event is scheduled to feature top transportation experts and commentators who will have a broad discussion about the future of Wisconsin’s busiest interchange and its place in southeastern Wisconsin’s transportation system.
