As many of you know I am a big believer in getting info out and including many people related to the issue(s). One of the reasons is to make sure the proper people see the info or can get the info to the right people.

While driving home last week on the 794 Parkway, I came across a major traffic jam in the left lane just after the Port of Milwaukee traveling south bound. I thought to myself, must be an accident or disabled car, since the right lane was moving and people from the left were moving to the right.
I saw last week that the State DOT was out replacing the 40 MPH signs with 50 MPH ones. This was a welcome ahead of schedule event as I original stated on July 2nd 794 Lake Parkway Speed Update
I would like to remind you that Saturday, Lake Drive will be closed from 9 am until around roughly 1:30 pm, and the entrance to 794 at Layton and at Edgerton will be closed due to the USA Triathlon bike race portion here in our city.
Just a reminder that Ramsey Avenue between Packard and Barland will be closed at the rail road tracks starting Monday, July 15th @ 7:00 a.m. for approximately 2 weeks. The tracks will be completely removed so it will not be passable. A formal detour route will be posted. Barricades will be handled by the City. They are mobilizing a crew Sunday night and the City are to meet with them on Monday to get the info.

Updated - The closure to be extended thru 6-26-13 to help with the I-43 project.

I recently watched, during rush hour traffic, in Milwaukee on 43rd street, three public sector workers striping the road. Traffic was backed up and one of the workers kept yelling at the cars as if it were the drivers fault.
