With the publication of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has taken another big step forward in its drive to widen I-94 in Milwaukee’s East-West Corridor. They have dismissed, rather peremptorily, other options for the future. The purpose of this paper is not to criticize WisDOT’s chosen option but to demonstrate that another option – called here the “Rehab/Transit Option” – is not only feasible, but is in fact a better choice for the future of Milwaukee’s East-West Corridor. We will begin with a proposed scope of work for improvements required to reach a state of good repair and safe and reliable operation of the existing highway (the “Rehab” element). We will then propose a new high-quality rapid transit system (the “Transit” element) that will enable real 21st century mobility in the corridor.
