Bridge work to close portion of WIS 16 in Waukesha County in overnight hours
Motorists to be rerouted using on and off-ramps


June 16, 2015

As part of the ongoing WIS 16 project, crews will be removing the County KF Bridge deck in Waukesha County, requiring overnight, freeway closures of WIS 16 which passes underneath the structure.

Safety to the traveling public is of the utmost priority. The quickest and safest way to remove the deck is to fully close the below freeway. WisDOT has chosen an off-peak traffic time to minimize impacts to motorists who can utilize the following detour route.

Eastbound and westbound traffic on WIS 16 will be routed along the exit and entrance ramps at County KF, bypassing the demolition area. Electronic signs will help direct motorists to the proper detour. Law enforcement will be assisting during stages of the operation.

WIS 16 Westbound closure will be in effect Monday and Tuesday, June 22 and 23 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
WIS 16 Eastbound closure will be in effect Wednesday and Thursday, June 24 and 25 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.

The work is part of the rehabilitation of bridges along WIS 16 from WIS 67 to I-94. This project began in October 2014 and is anticipated to be completed in late fall 2015.
