With baseball and festival season just around the corner, I wanted to give everyone a heads up on the MULTIPLE road construction projects going on in Milwaukee right now and lasting until at least the end of summer.
The Mitchell Airport spur westbound is closed. If you are arriving by air, you will need to take Howell Ave up to Layton to 27th to jump on the freeway to go west or downtown.
I-94 East. Resurfacing work has it down to 1.75 lanes from the 84th street to 27th, but the backups start much farther to the west, even during mid-day and on weekends. The worst part is in front of Miller Park. For folks in St Louis planning to attend Opening Day in Milwaukee, it's best if you just stay home and avoid the whole mess. Seriously, just stay home. Not that I really care, because I'll be in Jamaica that week.
Bluemound and Mayfair Roads and Capitol Drive. Three of the busiest local roads in the entire state with a lot of shopping and other venues. Both are under major construction and accessible side streets are somewhat limited.
