Packer travel advisory

September 12, 2013

Road construction should not hinder game traffic

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, September 15 for the Green Bay Packers/Washington Redskins football game that the road construction season continues on most major roads in northeast Wisconsin. The good news for fans is they should not encounter any significant traffic impacts due to construction as they head to the game. Most work will be suspended and lanes open on Sunday in northeast Wisconsin.

WisDOT strongly recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destinations.

Here is a list of the major roads in northeast Wisconsin most Packers fans will be traveling as they head for the game and the road conditions they should anticipate:

US 41

  • Brown County
    • Drivers will encounter 11-foot travel lanes and reduced shoulders in multiple locations along a 10-mile segment of highway. The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph from just south of Grant Street to I-43. Temporary barrier walls at various locations will cause traffic to slow.
    • Mason Street – Traffic leaving the game: Mason Street traffic seeking US 41 northbound will do so via the US 41 northbound collector/distributor lanes, crossing WIS 29 and entering US 41 northbound via the entrance ramp from WIS 29.

WIS 172

  • Brown County
    • Eastbound WIS 172 to northbound US 41 ramp is closed. Eastbound WIS 172 traffic wanting to exit to northbound US 41 will continue east on WIS 172 and take the Oneida Street/Ashland Avenue exit which ends at Vanderperren Way; take Vanderperren Way west to Holmgren Way, follow Holmgren Way north to Pilgrim Way and take Pilgrim Way east to westbound WIS 172 on-ramp to northbound US 41.

I-43

  • Brown County
    • The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph on I-43 between Atkinson Drive and US 41.

WIS 29

  • Brown County
    • WIS 29 has narrower shoulders due to temporary barrier wall at various locations that will cause traffic to slow.
