New lane restrictions on I-94 East-West project begin soon

MILWAUKEE -- If you regularly drive eastbound I-94 into downtown Milwaukee from the Zoo Interchange, you'll soon start to see new lane restrictions.

Crews will be restricting traffic to two lanes on eastbound I-94 from 70th St. to 32nd St. in Milwaukee County beginning the week of Feb. 20th. Work is expected to be phased on that 2.5 mile stretch to keep two lanes open during the daytime hours. At night, double lane closures will take place.

The daytime lane restrictions on eastbound I-94 are expected to be over by the time Summerfest rolls around.

WisDOT encourages motorists to plan ahead, use alternate routes and modes of transportation, and expect delays during this project. Drivers from the west should be aware that there are two construction projects taking place this spring/summer in the vicinity of this project:
