Scott Walker declares Zoo Interchange is done, even as years of work remain

Gov. Scott Walker is doing the construction equivalent of moving the goalposts — except, in this case, they're orange traffic barrels.
Walker on Monday celebrated the completion of the core of the Zoo Interchange, even though work on the interchange's north leg is behind schedule. The overall construction project has for years tormented Milwaukee-area commuters.
“The Zoo Interchange Core is completed on time and on budget,” the GOP governor said in a statement.
There was even a "Zoo Interchange Core completion ceremony," where Walker cut a red ribbon with giant scissors.
Trouble is, the Zoo Interchange project remains unfinished and the price tag for the north leg recently went up.
