Wawatosa drivers should be aware of I-94 roadwork and lane restrictions that begin Monday, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
Lane restrictions will be between 70th Street and 32nd Street on I-94 eastbound. According to a DOT press release, two lanes each direction will be open during daylight hours, but night work between 9:30 p.m and 5:30 a.m. will require double lane closures.
Mitchell Boulevard and the I-94 freeway ramps to and from Mitchell Boulevard will be fully closed during construction, except during Brewers home games. Motorists can use Miller Park Way/US 41, Hawley Road and Bluemound Road to get around this closure. The eastbound 68th Street entrance ramp will be closed throughout the project for traffic management.
Drivers from the west should be aware that there are two construction projects taking place this spring/summer in the vicinity of this project:
- US 18 (Bluemound Road) between I-94 and Moorland Road: early spring to Labor Day. US 18 will be open to traffic and businesses with temporary lane shifts and changes in access during construction.
- WIS 190 (Capitol Drive) from Brookfield Road to WIS 100 (Mayfair Road): underway now until October. Capitol Drive will remain open to traffic during construction during peak hours, with temporary changes in how motorists drive through the construction zone. Between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m., traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction
