MILWAUKEE --- The I-94 construction project meant to improve the Marquette Interchange, among other things, is set to begin Monday.

The plan is to extend the current auxiliary lane at 35th St. east to the Marquette Interchange to provide additional length for merging. The extension of the lane will allow for smoother flow of traffic through the interchange and is meant to reduce delays.

According to the Department of Transportation the project comes on the heels of the reconstruction of the interchange in 2008. The DOT says there were several safety and efficiency issues that were identified along the west leg of the interchange.

Throughout the construction process there will be closures at the eastbound and westbound on and off ramps at 35th St. and also at the 28th St. westbound on ramp.

The lane closures are expected to last until mid-April and the entire project is expected to by finished by mid-May.
