Overnight closure of US 45 northbound at I-41/US 45 split


July 20, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to perform pavement marking at the I-41/US 45 split in Washington County. To facilitate this work, a full closure of US 45 northbound, but not southbound, will be required.

The closure of US 45 northbound is scheduled Sunday, July 24 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Traffic will be down to one lane on I-41/US 45 northbound, approaching the split. On I-41 northbound, past the split, traffic will remain in one lane.


For northbound US 45 traffic: Continue northbound on I-41, past the split, to exit onto eastbound WIS 145. Continue east on WIS 145 to connect with the entrance ramp for northbound US 45.

Safety to the traveling public is of the utmost priority. The safest way to perform this work is by fully closing this segment of the US 45 roadway.

The aforementioned activity is part of the I-41/US 45 Rehabilitation Project. More information can be found on 511 Wisconsin at
