Waukesha County Circuit Judge Lee Dreyfus Jr. on Wednesday dismissed a request for a preliminary injunction to block New Berlin from permanently closing a portion of Wilbur Drive.
A hearing was held at 1:30 p.m. today.
The New Berlin Common Council on Tuesday awarded a contract to create a cul-de-sac on Wilbur. Opponents of the move object because the cul-de-sac would divert traffic onto other nearby residential streets. A temporary road block is already in place. Opponents don't want to see it become permanent.
The closure is meant to discourage traffic from using Wilbur Drive as a shortcut route between Sunnyslope Road and the City Center area. Neighbors and city officials would rather see traffic use National Avenue, which intersects with Sunnyslope, as the primary access route through the commercial area.
