Waukesha Bypass Opponent,
We need your letter! It's so important! And, please pass this e-mail on to others!
We have heard from a reliable source in the Wisconsin DOT that they aren't 100% supportive of the West Waukesha Bypass, that they are doing it because Waukesha County wants it! So we need to let Waukesha County know that we, the residents of Waukesha County, don't want the Bypass. So, this letter is going to County Executive Dan Vrakas.
Our Action Message is to ask County Executive Vrakas to stop the Bypass!
E-Mail County Executive Dan Vrakas. Please take this action by June 20, 2014.
E-mail to; [email protected]

Please Stop Planning The West Waukesha Bypass and Just Fix It!
Dear County Executive Vrakas,
I'm writing you today to ask that you do what you can to cancel the planned West Waukesha Bypass expansion project and instead improve the route at a savings of many millions of taxpayers dollars!
Why am I against the West Waukesha Bypass? There are many reasons; environmental, health, social, safety, and financial. As someone who values Waukesha County's natural environment I'm sure you can understand why I feel that the destruction of the Pebble Creek Environmental corridor is just unacceptable!
The cost of this project is another big reason. The DOT will soon be asking for tax increases to pay for Wisconsin's deteriorating roads. We should be repairing and not expanding our roads at a time like this! The coalition Opposed to the West Waukesha Bypass has proposed a "No Build, Improve" alternative. I ask that you consider this alternative.
Our transportation system has reached a tipping point. A new report analyzes the costs of building new roads at the expense of maintaining existing ones. The report by Smart Growth America and Taxpayers for Common Sense supports the Coalition Opposed to the West Waukesha Bypass' "No Build, Improve Alternative" to building the bypass. The Wisconsin DOT and Waukesha County should heed the message in this report! Here are some of the report's highlights.
