I-794 Lake Interchange Study

Exploring Possibilities Together

Let’s work together to deliver safe and efficient solutions that will enhance community connectivity, create land use opportunities and keep downtown and the region connected.

Study Overview

The Lake Interchange Study is evaluating alternatives for the I-794 freeway corridor, generally from the Milwaukee River to the Hoan Bridge. The study area is focused on areas of aging infrastructure and may change depending on project alternatives. The study is exploring ideas to improve the freeway corridor while also considering how the project could improve local street connectivity and safety so all modes of transportation can thrive in this urban environment.
