Work continues along Milwaukee’s Valley Bridge
The primary detour route for navigating interchange access continues to be the I-794 Hoan Bridge.
On the evening of Wednesday, May 30, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will begin the next phase of the Valley Bridge overlay project in the city of Milwaukee. This phase will shift southbound I-43 traffic allowing for the 11th Street / Wisconsin Avenue on-ramp to I-43 south to reopen.
As the project advances, access to certain system ramps will continue to become available. Please note that these closures are weather dependent and subject to change.
Current long-term ramp closures:
- I-794 West to I-43 South (Until Late June)
- I-43 North to I-94 West (Until Late June)
- I-43 North to 10th Street and Michigan Avenue Off-Ramp (Until Late June)
- I-94 East to I-43 South (Until Late July)
- Mineral Street/National Avenue On-Ramp to I-43 North (Until Late August)
