Strange day on the road-building front

The most amazing part of today's long, long, long meeting of the Legislature's Road to the Future Committee at the Medical College of Wisconsin was the gentleman who said US 41 should go further north, and it didn't really matter if it destroyed the vital and lively Sherman Park neighborhood in Milwaukee.

He said residents of Milwaukee neighborhoods that would be destroyed by freeway expansion should not have any say about it.

The gentleman lives in Shorewood, and did not favor extending I-794 north through his community.

Thanks to State Rep. Josh Zepnick (D-Milwaukee) for asking the question.
