Lane restrictions on I-43 in Ozaukee County over holiday weekend
May 22, 2014
Significant northbound delays expected near Port Washington on Friday
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is informing holiday weekend travelers of potentially serious delays on I-43 in Ozaukee County. Due to construction work on bridges along I-43, from Northwoods Road to County LL, traffic will be reduced to one northbound lane at County LL, near Fredonia. Delays of several miles are anticipated.
WisDOT is encouraging northbound traffic to take alternate routes, if possible. The recommended alternate route follows WIS 57 northbound to WIS 23 eastbound, back to I-43. Portable message signs will be found along I-43, directing drivers to the alternate route.
There will be no lane restrictions for southbound traffic on I-43, but delays are likely on Monday due to heavy holiday traffic.
WisDOT reminds drivers to be alert, be patient and buckle up.
