Patching, joint repair, single lane closures: The upcoming construction that could impact your commute

MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Luck with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation joins FOX6 WakeUp to talk about the upcoming construction that could impact your commute.

I-41/US 45 Cable Guard Project (Washington County) (Fall 2019 through late fall 2020)

In early fall 2019, crews began resurfacing 22 miles of I-41 between the I-41/US 45 split and the Dodge County Line. This stretch of I-41 will have guardrail and cable barrier installed and will replace the structures along I-41 over a tributary to the East Branch Rock River.

      * New Project Coming Soon

      I-43 Rehabilitation Project (Walworth County) Mid-March 2020 through late fall 2021

      BEGINNING MARCH 16, 2020

      This project along I-43 is approximately 16 miles in length and extends from the Rock County Line to US 12 in Walworth County. The purpose of this project is to extend the service life of the highway and existing structures along the corridor. Four of the existing bridge structures along I-43 are in need of deck replacements based on the condition of each structure. In addition, numerous other structures will undergo various minor improvements.

      Improvements Include:

        Project Impacts:

        I-43 will remain open to traffic during construction, however, lane closures are expected throughout the 16-mile corridor.

          Efforts will be made to minimize the times when concurrent long-term ramp closures are in place at both the WIS 67 and US 12 interchanges. Detours will be posted.
