WIS 16 off-ramp to Waukesha County P to close next week
Month-long closure necessary for ramp improvements


Aug. 19, 2014

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to close the westbound WIS 16 off-ramp to Waukesha County P (Brown Street) , beginning Tuesday, August 25. This closure will affect the Tuesday morning commute. The off-ramp is currently scheduled to reopen in late September.

The planned improvements will increase the safety and capacity of the ramp by extending the off-ramp, while adding a right turn lane. Once completed, westbound WIS 16 motorists will approach the exit sooner and have a dedicated right turn lane at the bottom of the ramp.

The detour is as follows:

During the closure, motorists can continue on westbound WIS 16, then exit onto northbound WIS 67/WIS 16. Proceed north to County Z. Go east on County Z to connect to County P.

The schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.

The work is part of the bridge rehabilitation project along WIS 16, from WIS 67 to I-94. This project began in October 2014 and is anticipated to be completed in late fall 2015.
