Bridges at County GG and Y are the last construction staging areas for Winnebago County

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is announcing full overnight closures of northbound and southbound US 41, between US 45 and WIS 76, Monday, March 3 through Thursday March 6, NIGHTLY from 9 p.m. to  5 a.m. for demolition of the County Y overpass. In addition, the northbound US 41 on-ramp from US 45 and the southbound US 41 on-ramp from WIS 76 will also be closed during this timeframe. The following detours will be in place.

  • Northbound US 41 traffic will be detoured off at US 45, take Algoma Boulevard south to Murdock Avenue, follow Murdock Avenue east to WIS 76 and take WIS 76 north to US 41.
  • Southbound US 41 traffic will be detoured off at WIS 76, take WIS 76 south to Murdock Avenue, follow Murdock Avenue west to Algoma Boulevard, take Algoma Boulevard north to US 41.
