Work to begin on I-94 in Racine and Kenosha Counties

I-94 North-South preparatory work expected to get underway March 7th

By - Mar 1st, 2018 04:29 pm

Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is planning to begin work to reconstruct the remaining portions of I-94 as a part of the I-94 North-South project. The preparatory work will work on the shoulders, add temporary roadway widening, install traffic crossover locations along with drainage improvements to the area. The work will take place between County G in Racine County and WIS 142 in Kenosha County.

When the work gets underway, the southbound lanes at County G will be reduced from 3 lanes to 2 lanes. A zipper merge will be put in place with signage reminding motorists to use all three lanes up to the lane drop area in which signs will be positioned reminding drivers to alternate at that spot to merge into the work zone. Northbound lanes at WIS 142 will only see off peak closures during the early stages of this project. Three lanes will remain open northbound during peak travel times. There will be overnight closures of on and off ramps within the project limits.

Project Improvements:

  • Concrete shoulder repairs
  • Temporary roadway widening
  • Traffic crossovers
  • Improved drainage

Traffic Impacts:

  • Southbound lane reduction at County G
  • Overnight lane and ramp closures
  • Delays anticipated heading into work zone

The contractor, Zignego Company, Inc., is planning on completing the $14.4 million project by late Spring of 2018. Work start and completion dates are weather dependent and subject to change.
