The Miller Park stadium board approved a $1.65 million budget for stadium projects in 2013. On the agenda...repairs and maintenance of the retractable roof and reconstruction of Yount Drive to allow busses to drop off and pick up fans more easily.

After being closed for 15 months, the Juneau Avenue Bridge will reopen to traffic. The ribbon cutting ceremony takes place at 10:30am today. 

Milwaukee is one of the first cities to get SceneTap, the new, free app that tells you what to expect at a bar before you even get there. Sensors and cameras are mounted in bars, scanning the crowds using facial recognition. Thenthe app reports how many people are in the bar, the average age of the customers and the female to male ratio.  About 23 bars in Milwaukee are using this technology.
