This evening, May 9, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin its final push to complete routine maintenance within the Mitchell Interchange in Milwaukee County. Last fall, crews began making improvements to this interchange spanning from south of College Avenue, west of 35th Street, and north to Howard Avenue. Due to cold weather constraints on temperature-sensitive work last year, the project team will return temporarily to the area to complete the maintenance.

Scope of Work

  • Crack Sealing
  • Applying a High Friction Surface Treatment along the eastbound I-894 to southbound I-94 curve
  • Updating pavement markings throughout the interchange

What to Expect

  • To help minimize traffic impacts, most work will occur during the overnight hours.
  • Any temporary lane restrictions or ramp closures are scheduled to occur during nightly off-peak hours.

The contractor, Payne & Dolan, Inc., is planning on completing the $2.8 million contract by mid-June. The schedule of work is weather dependent and subject to change. More information can be found on the project website at: https://projects.511wi.gov/mitchell/
