Lately I've found myself traveling beyond Brookfield's borders into New Berlin.
I've found myself driving on Greenfield Ave. two or three times a week. Greenfield Ave. is a good east / west alternative to Bluemound Rd. There is little traffic and few stop lights. The 45 mph speed limit can easily be maintained. There are relatively few businesses (except at the intersections), and many homes with large lawns. I enjoy the suburban look. (Yes, I do know that the westbound lane is Brookfield!)
Occasionally I'll take Cleveland Ave. east and west. The roadway seems to have a more country feel. But once again, there's little traffic and fairly smooth traveling.
Now, if only there were free-flowing north and south roads across Brookfield into adjoining communities.
