Phase two of construction begins along WIS 190 (Capitol Drive)


May 16, 2017

On the morning of Wednesday, May 17, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to enter phase two of the WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) reconstruction project, from Five Fields Road to Wethersfield Road, in Waukesha County. With the recent completion of temporary cross-overs, there will be a new traffic pattern resulting in two open lanes heading westbound and a single open lane heading eastbound on the existing eastbound roadway. This phase also requires the closure of the westbound Capitol Drive off ramp at County F. This single lane and ramp closure is anticipated to be in place until in mid-August.

This closure is necessary for the demolition of the westbound bridge scheduled to take place on May 22-24, as well as for the implementation of the newly constructed structure. The bridge demolition operations will require temporary night closures along County F.

Motorists are encouraged to follow the signed detour along WIS 164, County M (south), and Lisbon Road (north) to get around the westbound Capitol Drive off ramp closure at County F, and the temporary County F roadway closure.

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