Can 13th Street Work Wait Four Years?
A reconstruction of 13th Street is finally in Milwaukee County's plans, but it will be awhile before any improvements are made.
While a reconstruction of 13th Street is now in Milwaukee County's plans, work on the treacherous roadway is still four years away.
The county plans to reconstruct the portion between Rawson and Drexel in 2016 and Drexel and Puetz in 2017.
Officials say they hope to continue moving south on 13th Street after that.
But will the road make it another four years? Patch users chimed in earlier this month:
If you want to have any part of your car still intact I would avoid taking S 13th St. starting now! It's quite a ride.
A dune buggy is the best thing to drive between Rawson and Ryan Road.
Resident of O.C. Paul:
Figures...The county won't properly prioritize projects...but wait...The county is outsourcing the patrol of "County Parks" from the County Sheriffs to to the city of Milwaukee Police Department...
What do you think? Are you happy that the street is at least in the county's plans, which represents an improvement from when the year began? Or is the street in too much disrepair to wait that long?
