US 51 traffic switch, speed reduction planned next week in Wausau

April 7, 2014

Crews working on the reconstruction of the US 51/Marathon County U and K interchange in Wausau plan to begin shifting northbound and southbound US 51 traffic to a temporary adjacent roadway on Monday, April 7. The speed limit in the work zone will also be lowered to 55 mph.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution as they approach the work zone and should be ready to encounter slow moving vehicles. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction status.
