Beginning 6 a.m., Tuesday, May 12, the Wisconsin
Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled
to close the entrance ramp from WIS 50 to US 12
westbound, in Walworth County. The closure is
expected to last through the evening hours of
Thursday, May 21.
This closure will affect the morning commute on May
12 through the evening commute on May 21.
This work is part of the US 12/WIS 50 project which
began in spring of 2014. This closure was not
originally anticipated to complete the work on this
ramp. However, crews since discovered the condition
of the pavement on the ramp has deteriorated beyond
the point of economical repair. This will require
more intensive work on the ramp which requires it to
be shut down to traffic.
Detour for WIS 50 westbound motorists:
• Proceed through the US 12/WIS 50 Interchange to
access Edwards Blvd.
• Go north on Edwards Blvd., continuing as it turns
into Sheridan Springs Road.
• Continue west on Sheridan Springs Road to County H
(Interchange North Road).
• Go east on County H to access the US 12 westbound
on-ramp at the WIS 120 Interchange.
The contractor will take advantage of the closure by
performing other work items on the ramp that were to
take place over several weeks of night time
WisDOT has scheduled this closure to occur prior to
the Memorial Day weekend, in an attempt to limit
disruption to traffic related to the summer tourist
