Overnight closure of US 45 at I-41/US 45 split


May 18, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to perform paving work at the I-41/US 45 split in Washington County. To facilitate this work, a full closure of US 45, but not I-41, will be required.
The closure of US 45 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 22 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. If weather conditions prohibit this work, the contingency date is Sunday, June 5.
  • For northbound US 45 traffic: Continue north on I-41, past the spilt, to exit at eastbound WIS 145. Continue east on WIS 145 to connect with the entrance ramp for northbound US 45.
  • For southbound US 45 traffic: Exit at westbound WIS 145. Continue west on WIS 145 to connect with the entrance ramp for southbound I-41. Interstate 41 will merge with US 45 at the split.
During this time period, northbound traffic on I-41/US 45 will be down to one lane, approaching the split. All lanes of southbound I-41 traffic, approaching the split, are scheduled to be open.
Safety to the traveling public is of the utmost priority. The safest way to perform this work is by a full closure of the US 45 roadway.
