SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is hereby given that FHWA has taken final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1) by issuing approval for the following highway project: Interstate 94 (I-94) East-West Corridor, 70th Street to 16th Street, in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Wisconsin DOT Project I.D. 1060-27-00. The purpose of the project is to address the deteriorated condition of I-94, obsolete roadway and bridge design, existing and future traffic demand, and high crash rates along approximately 3.5 miles of I-94. The project includes reconstructing and adding a through lane along I-94 in each direction along its existing alignment; reconstructing the 68th/70th Street interchange; reconstructing the Hawley Road interchange as a partial interchange; closure of the Mitchell Boulevard interchange; reconfiguring the system interchange at I-94/WIS 175/Miller Park Way (Stadium Interchange) as a hybrid between a service interchange and a system interchange (including a local road connection to Mitchell Boulevard and modifying the WIS 175 interchange ramps at Wisconsin Avenue); reconstructing the 35th Street and 27th Street interchanges; and local roadway improvements to offset impacts to local traffic from interchange modifications.
