Drexel bridge and the Oak Leaf Trail

Posted by Doug Shidell, July 13th, 2012

The bridge carrying Drexel Avenue over I94 is now completely demolished. This means that the main Oak Leaf loop around Milwaukee county is now severed. In researching the update for the Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin map last week I checked for signs suggesting a detour but did not find any. So here is my suggested detour:

East bound on Drexel:

  • South on 27th St.
  • E on Puetz Rd
  • N on Shepard Ave
  • E on Forest Hill
  • N on the bike trail
  • E on Drexel

West bound on Drexel:

  • S on the bike trail (shortly after crossing the railroad tracks)
  • W on Forest Hill (the first cross street)
  • S on Shepard
  • W on Puetz
  • N on 27th
  • W on Drexel
