Drexel Interchange Work Nearly Done
While Drexel Avenue reopened before Thanksgiving, drivers are still waiting to use the new on and off ramps to Interstate 94.
The new Drexel Interchange ramps are on track to open by Friday, according to the city of Oak Creek.
The city said on its website there's a "slim chance" the ramps could open before that.
Many residents have anxiously awaited the opening of the ramps, particularly with Drexel Avenue between 13th and 27th streets now reopened to traffic.
While a ribbon-cutting for the project was held last week, more work was still needed on the on and off ramps to Interstate 94.
The Drexel Interchange is the first new interchange in southeastern Wisconsin since I-94 was built. It's part the years-long project to reconstruct I-94 from Mitchell Airport to the state line.
