Excessive backups on I-94 in Eau Claire - Update: Ramp gates now opened at WIS 37 - Traffic moving slowly through area
July 26, 2013
Due to high traffic volumes and single lanes created by the newly established construction zone, law enforcement is restricting additional vehicles on I-94 at WIS 37.
Ramp gates will be shutting down the eastbound entrance ramp at WIS 37 until further notice.
Motorists traveling east on I-94 through Eau Claire should consider alternate routes as the afternoon progresses. WIS 29 or WIS 312 to US 53 south would be a suggested route. Those returning on Sunday may want to consider the opposite route to avoid congestion heading west.
These delays can be anticipated for the remainder of the summer while work progresses to reconstruct the interstate between WIS 93 and US 53.
Motorists should dial 511 or visit Wisconsin 511 online for up-to-the-minute information on highway and travel conditions in Wisconsin.
