MILWAUKEE — A major traffic switch on westbound I-94 is scheduled to occur by late December 2016/early January 2017 as part of the Zoo Interchange project.

I-94 West traffic will be shifted onto new pavement between WIS 100 and Elm Grove Road as crews begin reconstruction of the current I-94 West lanes. With this traffic switch, the following changes will take place:

  • The WIS 100 entrance ramp to I-94 West will be closed long-term through late fall 2017
  • The WIS 100 entrance ramp to I-94 East will reopen

Please note that your GPS may not yet be up to date with the new freeway design, so watch directional signage closely. As always, plan ahead, allow for extra time, and watch directional signage closely.
