MILWAUKEE -- Construction is really picking up -- with changes coming to I-94 and the Zoo Interchange. Ryan Luck with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation joins FOX6 WakeUp to talk about everything that's going to impact your commute.

Work will be suspended on the freeway from 12 p.m. Friday, May 27 until 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 31st for the Memorial Day holiday. Long term closures will remain in effect.

Zoo Interchange Project:

Overnight last night crews re-opened the I-94 East exits to 84th Street and 70th Street and moved I-94 East traffic to the newly constructed eastbound lanes. Please note that traffic exiting I-94 East at 84th Street will be able to turn south only.

Tuesday, May 31

Crews will need to close one lane on I-94 East between 84th Street and 68th Street for about 3 weeks to quickly reconstruct the area in the median where the eastbound traffic had been traveling.

The following overnight closures will occur to accomplish this switch:

  • Overnight full closure of I-94 East at Moorland Road from 11 pm - 4:30 am
  • Overnight full closure of the Zoo Interchange system ramp from I-41 South to I-94 East from 10:30 pm - 5 am
