MILAUKEE (WITI) — Work will begin on March 4th and continue until mid-May for the addition of an auxiliary lane of traffic between 25th and 37th street.

On-ramps at 35th street will be closed the last week of February to complete work on lane markings. The work will link the auxiliary lane at 35th street with the lane in the Marquette Interchange that ends at 25th street under the current configuration.

When work is completed there will be three westbound lanes and the auxiliary lane connecting the Marquette Interchange with the Stadium Interchange.

The work scheduled for this spring will restore the second lane for I-794 westbound while maintaining the improvements along I-43 southbound to I-94 westbound.

There will be a single lane closure along I-94 westbound beginning on March 4th and running until mid-April. Additional off-peak, overnight and weekend work will continue until mid-May. Eastbound traffic will see some impacts due to median work that is required. There will be no lane closures eastbound.

Schedule and closure listings are tentative and weather dependent.
