We hear that the State of Wisconsin is broke. The city of Waukesha and county are struggling. People are losing their homes, gas is near $4 a gallon, everyone is cutting back! Except for the DOT! Have we ever seen so many road construction projects in SE Wisconsin and Waukesha County? And we're not talking about road maintenance, we're talking about new road construction. All of which will require more funding in the future to maintain. The more roads, the more plowing, the more potholes, the more repairs, etc, etc. Its time for the people of Wisconsin to put the DOT on a diet!

The Waukesha West Bypass Study is now down to two final alternatives; Pebble Creek west and Sunset-to-CTH X. Highway planners are still determining whether the new highway should be 2 or 4 lanes. A coalition of concerned citizen's and WEAL have joined together to develop an alternative and petition that protects the Pebble Creek Corridor, neighborhoods, and quality of life of area residents. We advocate a "No Build. Improve!" alternative on the Sunset-to-CTH X route. Get involved now and help stop this $50+ million "bypass that's not really a bypass" road building project! Start by signing the petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/bypassthebypass/

If Governor Walker was really looking for a quick win on behalf of the state budget shortfall he'd cancel the state's contribution to the Waukesha Bypass. With one phone call the Governor could save the State $38 million! With safety improvements on current roads there would be no need to build this mega-highway. The fact that this hasn't yet been done brings the Governors true motives into question! In addition, lets be honest, this "bypass" isn't really a bypass, its an expensive road expansion project. It might have been a bypass 25 years ago, but today its just a line on an city map!
