Do you remember Milwaukee Street in the 1940s and '50s with its slow, inefficient two-way traffic pattern? Then the three-lane, narrow, dangerous one-way raceway known as the circuit?
Now we have a meandering, two-way cow path that causes drivers to weave back and forth like an OWI driver.
Isn’t it time to change the traffic pattern on Milwaukee Street into a correctly done project?
No. 1: Make two wide lanes from Atwood Avenue to Centerway Street.
No. 2: Create curbside left-turn lanes at all appropriate intersections.
No. 3: Allow on-street parking on both sides of the street as prudent.
It is simple, safe, cost efficient and correct.
