MILWAUKEE -- The system ramp from I-794 to SB I-43/94 will close starting Monday May 6th and will remain closed until late August. This closure is part of the I-43 Bridges rehabilitation project. The work involving the ramp will be completed prior to the Harley event this summer. Detours will be posted to assist motorists looking to travel south along I-43/94.

The closure of the ramp was delayed until the completion of the I-94 restriping project. The restriping project is nearing completion and has reopened the second lane from I-794 to I-94 WB in addition to adding an auxiliary lane between the Marquette Interchange and the Stadium Interchange. This creates a four lane configuration improving traffic flow out of downtown. Other changes associated with this project include the Jackson St. ramp. The ramp will be reconstructed as a part of the I-794/Hoan Bridge rehabilitation project which begins in late September.
