The Zoo Interchange is Wisconsin's oldest and busiest interchange. It opened to traffic in 1963 and has deteriorated with age. WisDOT has coordinated closely with local and regional governments and agencies to develop reconstruction plans to meet the needs of the public. The overall goal for the Zoo Interchange project is to create a safer, more reliable transportation system to serve the state of Wisconsin.
The facility is wheelchair accessible. Those who are unable to attend the meeting, or would like more information, can contact the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (262) 521-5373. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting the project team at least three working days prior to the meeting.
