WB I-94 exit ramp to NB WIS 100 set to close this weekend

MILWAUKEE (WITI) --Current plans call for the I-94 westbound exit to WIS 100 northbound will be closed starting Saturday, April 6 at 8 p.m., weather permitting.

This ramp closure will be in effect through this summer. Motorists are encouraged to use northbound US 45 to Bluemound Road, Wisconsin Avenue or Watertown Plank to access WIS 100 northbound as a detour route.

Travelers should also expect a shift in traffic on WIS 100 over the weekend.  Crews will move all traffic onto the southbound side of WIS 100 until late summer in order to work on the northbound lanes.

The $35 million reconstruction project includes widening WIS 100 to four lanes in each direction, including reconstructing the intersections.  During the majority of construction, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Work is expected to complete by the end of 2013. WIS 100 will serve as a critical alternate route during the Zoo Interchange project.
