July 5, 2013

Crews are planning brief (30 minute) closures of Business 51, underneath the I-39 freeway in the Village of Rothschild, on Tuesday, July 9, and Wednesday, July 10. The closures will occur between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. The closures are necessary for crews to set new bridge beams. The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.

Motorists are reminded to drive with caution as they approach the work zone and should be prepared to stop. To avoid delays associated with the closures, motorists may want to use alternate routes.
