On Monday, December 5, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin the first phase of repair work in the Mitchell Interchange. The work will require the left lane of northbound I-94 and the left lane of southbound I-94 to be closed, from Layton Avenue to 13th Street. The closures are scheduled for Monday, December 5 to Wednesday, December 7, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The remaining work will be completed by the end of the month but is weather dependent.

The operation is necessary to repair damage caused by crashes and to help prevent future crashes from occurring. The work being done includes realigning barrier wall, removing and reconstruction barrier wall, adjusting a manhole to eliminate a bump, and micro milling pavement to reduce wet pavement crashes.

As always, the schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change.

Some congestion is anticipated from these lane closures. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and stay alert in the work zone. Use 511wi.gov for up to date information and travel times.
