In the event of a major incident along the I-39/90/94 Wisconsin
Dells corridor, alternate routes have been identified to provide
travelers a safe and timely alternative to avoid traffic delays,
while still allowing emergency vehicle access to the site.
Depending on the location and direction of the closure, portable
changeable message signs will be strategically placed to advise
drivers of which route to use. Emergency personnel and signs will
continue to direct travelers along the alternate route and back onto
the interstate beyond the incident.
State and local agencies worked in cooperation to identify the
most effective alternate routes and establish incident management
procedures that notify appropriate emergency agencies and
temporarily detour traffic.
These alternate routes involve the major transportation corridors
around the Wisconsin Dells area, including I-90/94 north from Dane
to Monroe counties, and I-39 from I-90/94 north to WIS 23 in
Once an incident has been identified, the appropriate state and
local agencies will be notified and the WisDOT incident management
coordinator will place the message signs at the predetermined
locations to detour travelers. Local media outlets will be notified
of the freeway closure and the alternate route to be used.
