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