WIS 29 nighttime work, lane closures begin tonight in Rothschild

May 20, 2013

Utility crews are planning nighttime, single lane closures on eastbound WIS 29 between Sunset Drive and Business 51 in Rothschild, beginning tonight (May 20) at 6 p.m.

The closures are necessary to install fiber optic lines under the eastbound WIS 29 bridge over the Wisconsin River/Lake Wausau.

During the closures, WIS 29 will be restricted to one eastbound lane. Motorists can expect to encounter some delays during the night closure and should allow more time for travel.

Work is currently scheduled for completion by 6 a.m. Sunday, May 26. The schedule is subject to change based on weather and construction status.
