The Wisconsin Department of Transportationís
Zoo Interchange team will be completing work
along I-41/I-894 northbound in the overnight
hours beginning tonight. When the work is
completed at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, the
northbound lane currently closed near
National Avenue will be reopened. This will
allow the zipper merge point to be removed.
The work will also reopen
three ramps that had been closed while the
work was underway. The ramp to I-43 from WIS
100 in the Hale Interchange will be open as
will the northbound ramp from National
Avenue to I-41/I-894. The northbound ramp at
Greenfield Avenue will also reopen with
access to I-94 eastbound only.
There is a shift of the
traffic lanes to the west which will change
access to two system ramps. The ramp to I-94
westbound will be accessed from the right
lane while on northbound I-894. This makes
the end of any left hand accessed ramps in
the interchange. The decision point to enter
the ramp to I-94 eastbound will be closer to
Greenfield Avenue. This is much earlier than
the current point which is close to the
center of the interchange.
The Department is asking for
motorist to slow down and follow posted
information to familiarize themselves with
the new roadway configuration.
