    Wonder how are the roads on Hwy 20E from Elkhorn (I-43 N) toward Racine and then down to I-41S to Hwy 50E toward Kenosha. Then off at 104th S? Need to know the update on Hwy 50 and the other routes ( that I requested) for the coming Saturday during the early day. Please advice.
    Thank you,
    Linda L.
