Incident at U.S. 41/45 SB at Pilgrim Road cleared, lanes reopened

MENOMONEE FALLS (WITI) -- FOX6 News has learned U.S. 41/45 SB has been reopened at Pilgrim Road as of 9:00 p.m.

The roadway had been shut down for a significant period of time, with all SB lanes blocked.

Drivers were being forced to exit SB 41/45 at Lannon Road and head west to 175, south to County Line Road, and east to 41/45.

The closure was due to multiple traffic incidents involving multiple vehicles.

"It's crazy, but it is winter in Wisconsin. Everybody should know it, but it's the first big snow storm and everybody's just not prepared," Cindy Knoll said.

Cars involved in this incident were being towed to nearby parking lots.
