Marquette Interchange Reconstruction
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Marquette Interchange carries more than 300,000 vehicles daily through downtown Milwaukee--nearly half the state's commerce and tourism traffic. The reconstruction of this critical corridor has delivered a new, state-of-the-art, five-level interchange, which now stands as one of Milwaukee's most iconic structures and a re-birth of the original interchange designed in 1968.
