Public supports extension of I-794 Lake Parkway

MILWAUKEE -- A report compiled by a committee studying a proposal to extend the I-794 Lake Parkway finds wide support for the idea.

More than 200 residents attended a February 29, 2012, public hearing hosted by Milwaukee County Supervisor Patricia Jursik. The public also submitted comments during a 30-day public comment period that ended March 15, 2012. Those comments show roughly 70% of respondents expressed support for a Lake Parkway extension.

The Advisory Committee on the Lake Parkway Extension Study is expected to meet Monday afternoon at South Milwaukee City Hall to talk about possible amendments -- and to finalize its recommendations.
