Planned full closure of WIS 83 and US 18 intersection in Waukesha County
Closure to occur weekend of October 24th

 

Oct. 15, 2014

As part of the WIS 83 reconstruction project, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be closing the intersection of WIS 83 and US 18 in the village of Wales from 8 p.m. Friday, October 24th to 5 a.m. Monday, October 27th.

When the intersection re-opens on Monday morning, it will function as a roundabout. Construction operations will continue into late fall in order to permanently construct a roundabout in that location.

Safety to the traveling public and our workers is of the utmost priority. The safest way to complete this work is to fully close this intersection. WisDOT has chosen an off-peak traffic time to minimize impacts to motorists who can utilize the following detour routes.

From US 18 (east of the intersection) get on County TT (Meadowbrook Rd.), proceed north to connect with the I-94 westbound on-ramp. Proceed west on the freeway to the County C off-ramp to go southbound on County C until you link back with US 18.
From US 18 (west of the intersection) follow the opposite sequence.
From WIS 83 (south of the intersection) get on County G, proceed west to County C northbound to US 18. Go east on US 18 to County C northbound, then Eastbound I-94 to the WIS 83 off-ramp.
From WIS 83 (north of the intersection) follow the opposite sequence.

Local residents familiar with the adjacent communities may find a more efficient route. However, WisDOT encourages all truck traffic to use the aforementioned detour.

More information about the project can be found at www.dot.wisconsin.gov/projects/seregion/83/index.htm.

In the event of inclement weather, the closure will occur the following weekend of October 31st through November 3rd..
