I don't see the problem with it.. it's just business and they really didn't even need to try and make it look fancy, but they did

The only problem i see with it is the bud advertisment i mean does anyone really drink bud around here?

The size isnt that bad but i could see how some would complain.

Somehow I don't think a straight-on shot of a large three-sided billboard illustrates what an over-designed mess it is.

Here's hoping it'll be imploded when something of better use is proposed for that plot of land.

I agree, I think it could have been a lot worse. I ususally agree with Gould, but on this, I think she's a little over the top in her hatred of the thing.

Before this article was written, I'd noticed this billboard without even realizing it. I remember seeing the ad for Landmark, then several different ones before that. It didn't even occur to me what the actual structure itself looks like, just saw the ads...guess it works!!

Hello all. This is my first time visiting this specific thread; I usually check out the stadium/arenas board. Are there projected visuals in this thread somewhere of how the Marquette interchange will look upon completion? The official site seems to have not been updated, except lane closures, etc, since its inception, and I would love to see how it will really look in a couple years. I drive through it everyday, but there are some connections (I-43 SB to I-794 EB and I-794 WB to I-94 EB, specifically) where I just can't see how it will be done. Any help is appreciated. I also look forward to reading more about Milwaukee in this thread.

There are renderings of how the competed interchange will look on the official mchange.org website. You can find them under the "ProjectGuide" and "News and Talk" sections.
