Zoo Interchange Fast Facts

Jan. 07, 2014 College News - Congratulations! We made it through Day 1 of the new road closures at Watertown Plank Road and the US 45 ramps.  As anticipated, traffic was heavy on Wisconsin Avenue.  And, thanks to the Polar Vortex causing school closings, we believe we have not yet seen the full force of the morning and evening commutes. Wisconsin Avenue is the most direct route to accessing our campus but don’t be afraid to experiment with other routes. Resources are available to help you find alternative routes. They include:

  • Online: www.BestRouteBestCare.org. See live traffic speeds and get the weekly construction news.
  • Email: Check your inbox for the latest construction information from your organization.
  • Printed materials: Watch your mailbox for a special Milwaukee Regional Medical Center 2014 Route Guide.
  • Phone: 1-800-ZOO-0003 Call for outgoing information on recommended routes.  Coming soon: Live representatives will be available 24/7 to assist with directions or to be connected to an office if running late for an appointment.
  • Twitter: Sign up to receive the most up-to-date information: @TravelMRMC
  • App: Download the new “Travel MRMC” app on your iPhone or Android devices.  This app will create the best route to our campus around the closures based upon traffic and travel distance. 

Most of all please be patient, plan for extra travel time and be courteous to other drivers and pedestrians. We are all in this together!
