I-94, 70th St. to 16th St., in Milwaukee County.
WisDOT is currently initiating an environmental and engineering analysis of the I-94 East-West Freeway Corridor. The project will cover approximately 3.5 miles of I-94 between 70th Street and 16th Street in Milwaukee County. The project includes one system interchange (US 41/WIS 341/Miller Park Way) and five service interchanges (70th Street/68th Street, Hawley Road, Mitchell Boulevard, 35th Street, and 26th Street/St. Paul Avenue.
This portion of the I-94 East-West Freeway corridor opened to traffic in 1961 and 1962. It is the link between the Marquette Interchange and Zoo Interchange. It plays a key role in moving commuters, tourists, freight and other movements to major sites around and beyond the Southeast region of the state.
WisDOT has maintained and rehabilitated the ramps, bridges, pavements and other structures a number of times over the past 50 years, but the corridor is nearing the end of its useful life. Now is the time to take the next steps to determine how the corridor should be rebuilt to ensure that it serves the economy of Southeastern Wisconsin for decades to come.
Traffic from around the region, state and nation passes through this corridor, and there are many major institutions and tourist attractions that are in close proximity, including:
- Veterans Administration complex
- Miller Park
- Miller Coors brewery
- Menomonee Valley businesses, including Potawatomi Casino
Study started 2012 and scheduled to be completed in 2015.
