Nighttime southbound I-39/US 51 lane closures scheduled to begin tonight
March 11, 2013
On-ramp to northbound I-39/US 51/Business 51 scheduled to close March 18
Crews are planning nighttime single lane closures on southbound I-39/US 51 (between Business 51 and Foxglove Road in Rothschild) beginning tonight (March 11) at 8 p.m. When the lanes are closed the speed limit is reduced to 55 mph in the work zone. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m.
The nighttime lane closures are scheduled for completion by Saturday, March 16.
Crews are also planning to close the northbound on-ramp to I-39/US 51 from Business 51 (Exit 185) in Rothschild on Monday, March 18. The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.
The on-ramp closure is necessary for crews to reconstruct the I-39/US 51 southbound bridge over Business 51. The ramp will remain closed until late August 2013. During the closure, traffic will be detoured via Business 51 and WIS 29. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and allow more travel time to avoid delays.
