US 41/45 northbound traffic detour: Exit at WIS 74/Main St. Proceed east to WIS 145. Go north on WIS 145 to County Line Road (County Q). Proceed west on County Q to connect with the freeway. (US 41/45 southbound traffic should follow the opposite sequence for detour.)

Safety to the traveling public is of the utmost priority. The safest way to demolish the bridge is to close the freeway underneath. There will be a signed detour for the full freeway closure.
