Milwaukee’s Northwest Side (more wishes)

Posted by Doug Shidell, December 31st, 2012

The far northwest side is Milwaukee’s bike desert. Despite a common border that runs several miles there is no good connection between Mequon and Milwaukee. The streets running north and south are busy, old, and have no shoulders or broken-up ones. While there is an extension of the Oak Leaf Trail on some planning maps that would connect to Mequon, it is likely many years away. At some point presumably these roads will be rebuilt with the shoulders needed for safe riding.
