Another missing link: Port Washington Road

Posted by Doug Shidell, December 31st, 2012

A bicyclist traveling between Milwaukee and Port Washington can take Lake Drive for most of Milwaukee county and Lake Drive for most of Ozaukee county. The problem is joining the two. The only connector between the two counties is Port Washington Road, which is busy and has lousy shoulders, particularly in the Mequon portion. Southbound the shoulder is gravel; northbound there is a curb and no shoulder. The Bayside portion has been improved with some bike lines and worked to slow down cars leaving I-94. With heavy bike use, this is a stretch that is calling for improvement: a bike lane or a parallel bike path.
