July 11, 2013
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is replacing approximately five miles of I-94 pavement in both eastbound and westbound lanes from WIS 37 to US 53 in Eau Claire County. Approximately 3/4 miles of WIS 37 pavement, from just north of Silver Springs Drive to just south of Hamilton Avenue/Short Street, will also be replaced.
Anticipated project schedule:
July 1 – Traffic control staging begins.
July 9 – Lane closures in each direction will begin.
July 26 – The I-94 eastbound entrance ramp from WIS 93 and the I-94 westbound entrance ramps from US 53 will close until September.
After Labor Day – Both WIS 93 entrance ramps to I-94 will close until November 9.
Recommended alternate routes include WIS 29 and US 53 for through traffic. Also, WIS 312/County EE and US 53 interchanges are recommended access points for Eau Claire.
