After analyzing  traffic trends and area needs, the coalition instead called for investing in local transportation and transit systems. The less costly transit alternatives would give much-needed access to jobs, health care, and other services for those who don’t or can’t drive. The coalition continues working to convince the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to replace the expansion plan with a transit alternative.
