In 1995, outspoken Milwaukee Mayor John O. Norquist proposed the I-794 portion of the East-West Freeway from the Marquette Interchange easterly to, and including, the Lake Interchange be removed completely and replaced with a landscaped surface boulevard. There was nearly universal opposition to the proposal to remove the freeway from elected officials and civic leaders outside of Milwaukee for a variety of reasons. In addition, the STH-794/Lake Parkway opened through Bay View, Cudahy and South Milwaukee in 1999, causing traffic volumes on the East-West Freeway through downtown continued to climb, to over 111,000 in 2004.
