The West Portal
There seems to be some confusion about the name of the road here. The camera seems to be on Plank Road, paying homage to when this was the Watertown Plank Road, a wooden paved toll road that went from Milwaukee to Watertown. The addresses of the businesses to the east, including the car dealer and The Kiltie drive-in, are on Wisconsin Avenue. Some maps show the name of the road, west of the bridge as Plank Road, as Wisconsin Avenue east of the bridge, then Plank Road east of The Kiltie. Anyone know the story?
