Semi-tractor trailer rollover-detour route
April 7, 2014
System ramp closure in the Mitchell Interchange
A semi-tractor rollover crash has caused a closure of a system ramp in the Mitchell Interchange in Milwaukee. At 1:36 p.m., the trailer detached from the cab leading to a closure of the tunnel connecting I-94 westbound to I-43 northbound/I-894 westbound.
Fire crews and the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department are on the scene. Initial reports indicate a fuel spill. The condition of the driver has not been confirmed.
The recommended detour is as follows:
- Exit I-94 W (northbound) at College Avenue
- Left to head toward 27th Street
- Right on 27th Street
- Take ramp onto I-43 / I-894 W
The closure is expected to continue into PM rush hour. If additional work is required, updated releases will be sent out. As always, check Wisconsin 511 online for up-to-date traffic conditions.
