A $1.28 billion plan to widen a stretch of Interstate 94 west of downtown Milwaukee to eight lanes would cost $74 million more than simply rebuilding the current six lanes, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s latest analysis of the project.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation expects to start construction on an overhaul of the east-west stretch of Interstate 94 in 2025 after picking a preferred design for the project next year.
The driver of a semi-truck was injured Thursday after crashing into a dump truck on Interstate 94 near Johnson Creek on Thursday, according to the Wisconsin State Patrol.
Several groups opposed to a $1.1 billion plan to add lanes to a stretch of Interstate 94 west of downtown Milwaukee released a report Tuesday urging the state to spend more on transit and rebuild the roadway instead of widening it.
Wisconsin's overhaul of Interstate 94 North-South between Milwaukee and the Illinois border has been recognized as an outstanding infrastructure project.
Three people were struck and killed along the interstate in Jefferson County after they got out of their vehicles following a crash, according to sheriff's officials.
Wisconsin legislators were set Tuesday to begin taking the final votes on the 2021-23 state budget.
