set for I-41/US 45 bridge work in Washington County
Halfway point in month-long project
Sept. 27, 2015
On late Sunday evening, September
27, crews are scheduled to enact a southbound
traffic switch at the I-41/US 45 split, as work
continues on a small bridge in Washington
County. This switch allows traffic to be placed
on the newly constructed roadway, giving crews
the opportunity to reconstruct the other portion
of the bridge. This milestone signifies the
halfway point for the month-long project.
The number of lanes restricted will remain the
same, with the two lanes on I-41 and on US 45,
being down one lane each. Following the merge
where the roadway is normally three lanes, it
will continue to be down to two.
The closures will be in place prior to the
Monday morning commute.
The alternate route remains the same. Exit the
freeway at WIS 60 and proceed west to WIS 164.
Go south on WIS 164 to connect with WIS 175.
Travel south on WIS 175 to rejoin the freeway at
the Holy Hill Road Interchange
To deal with the traffic impacts--motorists
should use alternate routes, allow extra time to
reach their destination, but above all, be
patient during the work. Use of the 511
Wisconsin website http://www.511wi.gov/Web/ or
511 mobile app will help anticipate delays.
WisDOT urges motorists to watch their speeds and
remain alert both in and out of the work zone.
The schedule is weather dependent and subject to
