Work to begin along I-41 in Menomonee Falls
Full ramp closures scheduled this summer


June 20, 2017

Beginning the week of June 26, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin work on I-41/US 45 near Main St. in the village of Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County.

The project centers around replacing a small bridge on both the I-41/US 45 southbound entrance ramp and on the I-41/US 45 mainline. Associated work will involve replacement of storm sewer, concrete barrier and beam guard, along with new lighting, signing and pavement marking.

WisDOT is taking great steps to minimize traffic impacts throughout the project. No lane closures will be scheduled during peak times and much of the work will take place in the evening hours. Later this summer, full ramp closures will be required. Detour routes will be provided during these closures.

The contractor Zenith Tech, Inc. plans on completing the $3.4 million project in mid-2018, with work ceasing during winter months. All ramps and lane closures will be reopened during winter shutdown with additional ramp closures scheduled for spring 2018.

Please note that the schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.
