Project description: The Milwaukee County East-West Bus Rapid Transit 
(BRT) Project will implement a new transit corridor along a 9-mile-long

infrastructure to improve accessibility, mobility, transit travel 
times, reliability, and passenger amenities within the project area. 
The BRT Project will operate on existing roads in dedicated transit 
lanes for approximately 5 miles and otherwise in mixed traffic lanes, 
and will be implementing transit signal priority or other signal 
treatments at 33 intersections to reduce travel times in the corridor. 
The alignment will involve complete roadway reconstruction along 
portions of 92nd Street and 94th Street through the Milwaukee Regional 
Medical Center campus between Wisconsin Avenue and Watertown Plank Road 
and will involve the construction of 19 BRT stations. This notice only 
applies to the discrete actions taken by FTA at this time, as described
