There will be one lane of traffic available in each direction on Capitol Drive between 2nd Street and Green Bay Avenue. Delays are expected, and motorists are being asked to consider selecting alternate routes.

The detour route will use the Locust Street exit to accommodate the traffic being diverted from Capitol Drive.
