Fix at Six: A sustainable and just alternative I94 expansion
The Fix at Six Alternative
Plans to expand the I-94 East West corridor in Milwaukee could be replaced with a safer option that shifts investments to more pressing transportation needs. Entitled “Fix at Six,” the Transit/Rehab Alternative would better meet the current and future needs of Milwaukeans and Wisconsinites.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is beginning the public input process for a supplemental environmental review of the proposed highway expansion and many want to see WisDOT move forward with the Fix at Six alternative, instead of adding more lanes to the highway.
Specifically, Fix at Six Alternative would fix the safety and operational concerns of the corridor but, rather than expanding it, instead invest in more pressing transportation needs such as road repair and transit expansion.
Commissioned by a coalition of environmental, faith, justice and transit advocates, the report was prepared by transportation planner and NJDOT veteran Mark Stout. It builds on a previous report written for the coalition in 2014.
