“The Future of SE Wisconsin Transportation and Its Busiest Interchange”

February 4, 2010 – 7:30 AM – 9 AM – Medical College of Wisconsin – Alumni Center

The Zoo Interchange provides connections between I-94, I-894 and US 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 moving quickly to replace 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 and proposals for regional transit authorities impact those systems?

Next week’s Feb. 4 event will feature a broad discussion about the future of Wisconsin’s busiest interchange and its place in southeastern Wisconsin’s transportation system.

This Thursday event is sponsored by the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin and co-organized by MMAC, UW-Milwaukee and WisPolitics.com/WisBusiness.com.

Keynote: Former Wisconsin Transportation Secretary Tom Carlsen

Panelists:

–Kenneth Yunker, executive director, Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, and temporary staff to the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority
–Craig Thompson, executive director, Transportation Development Assoc. of Wisconsin
–Gretchen Schuldt, co-chair of Citizens Allied for Sane Highways, a coalition opposing freeway expansion in Milwaukee
–Dan Devine, West Allis mayor and former Milwaukee Co. board member
–WisDOT representative (pending)
