Drivers take note: New traffic configuration now in play on southbound US 45

MILWAUKEE -- On Thursday morning, August 20, the Zoo Interchange project is scheduled to shift US 45 south traffic to the west onto newly constructed lanes, just south of Watertown Plank Road.

With this traffic switch, the US 45 south ramp to Bluemound Road will open.

Motorists on US 45 south will notice that the decision point to enter the ramp to I-94 east will move 3/4 of a mile north and access to this ramp will no longer be available from the Watertown Plank Road southbound entrance ramps during construction.

Traffic on Watertown Plank Road wishing to access I-94 east should utilize WIS 100 or 84th Street.
