FRANKLIN/OAK CREEK — The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has completed a major WIS 241 (S.27th Street) project milestone in time for the holiday shopping season.

The reconstruction project stretches from south of Drexel Avenue to north of College Avenue, in Milwaukee County.

On Monday, November 16, crews successfully switched traffic to have northbound motorists driving on the newly constructed concrete pavement.

Access during the holiday season:

• Most median openings at driveways, taking a left in and a left out, will remain open.
• Two lanes of traffic are open in each direction, north of Minnesota Avenue. South of Minnesota Avenue is one lane each way. (Scheduled to open to two lanes in mid-December)
• From I-94 on Rawson Avenue: Westbound motorists have an option of a turn lane heading north, a turn lane heading south and two lanes going straight.
• From I-94 on College Avenue: Westbound motorists will have an option of a turn lane heading north, a turn lane heading south and one lane going straight. (Scheduled for completion the first week of December)

    Whoever the contractor is working on the 27th street road project (from Rawson north) should be fired and not paid. Let’s see here, all year this has been going on:

    Improper or no signage to tell drivers where they should be

    Improper or no lane markings

    No temporary or permanent lighting

    Shuffling of what entrance/exits to use at businesses every other day

    Not setting up turn lanes for busy businesses

    Using the busiest intersection in the area as a turn around point without changing the lights timing

    Improper grading of temporary entrances/exits to businesses (1 foot deep potholes)

    Improper grading of base layer

    Excessive road debris making it dangerous to ride a motorcycle

    Excessively slow progress despite very good weather

    Where do I end??

    Seriously I can’t believe what’s going on over thereN
