The roads must go on
I realize that DOT Secretary Mark Gottlieb’s job was made tougher by the grabbing from the transportation fund by former Governor Jim Doyle, but Gottlieb needs to get his priorities straight. Whether he likes it or not, the Zoo Interchange needs to be replaced, and his boss, Governor Scott Walker, promised to make the Zoo Interchange a priority. Walker’s campaign and others even criticized Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett for his opposition to fixing the interchange.
Gottlieb says making the Interchange a priority will delay other projects around the state. Somebody should tell Gottlieb that a few less roundabouts is a price the rest of us are willing to pay.
Keep the promise and keep the Zoo Interchange a priority. Don’t waste another $50 million by stretching the project’s timeline out.
