I-94 Ramp Closure May Cost Weber's Inn Business

Aug 13, 2014

The ramp from eastbound I-94 to Jackson Avenue is now closed for about three weeks of repairs, and one of the more prominent businesses in the area expects the closure will have a negative financial impact.

Weber's Inn is located just off the freeway ramp, and Vice President Mark Weber says while their dinner crowd may be willing to go a little out of its way, lunch customers are different.

 "People that really only have half an hour for a lunch break, that extra five or 10 minutes of traffic or detour could make the difference," Weber says.

Weber says customers traveling east on I-94 can use the Zeeb Road exit, which should only add seven minutes or so to their travel time.
