Opponents of a city plan to close part of Wilbur Drive near the New Berlin City Center have asked for preliminary injunction to halt the process.
A hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. today in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
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 to use National Avenue, which intersects with Sunnyslope, as the primary access route through the commercial area.
