  • In late September, the westbound WIS 119 bridge over Howell Avenue will close for approximately 30 days.
    • Detour: Traffic leaving the airport can exit at Howell Avenue, and continue west on Grange Avenue to rejoin westbound WIS 119 at the nearby on-ramp.
  • Bridges over Howell Avenue (WIS 38) will have concrete overlays, joint replacement, and bearing replacement.
  • Bridges over 14th Street, 13th Street, 6th Street, and the Canadian Pacific Railroad will have polymer overlays applied.
  • There will also be pavement removals, base aggregate, HMA pavement, and concrete pavement associated with this project.

To help minimize traffic impacts heading to Mitchell International Airport, any temporary ramp closures or access changes are scheduled to occur during the overnight hours. Intermittent, overnight detours will be posted.
