Construction plans for I-794 and the Hoan Bridge will be on display at a public meeting set for 4 to 7 p.m. April 10 on the second floor of the Milwaukee Public Market, 400 N. Water St.

The open house-style meeting allows attendees to ask questions of the project team and provide input.

More information can be found on the project website.

The reason the Oklahoma interchange is the way it is is because the Post Office refused to move - forcing a "left exit" onto Oklahoma. All the other businesses/residents agreed to move - but the USPS said no. (So I have been told)

I think eminent domain works works on the usps too. :)

The whole Oklahoma Ave nightmare really needs to be looked into if they move ahead with plans to extend 794 all the way to Ryan Rd..... I wonder if the USPS is considering more closings at this time and if they are more open to dumping that post office site.

Nope - or at lease they didnt want to fight the USPS...
