84th St. Exit Ramp Along I-94 East set to Close Long Term
As part of the Zoo Interchange Project, lanes along I-94 east, between Hwy 100 and 92nd Street, will be shifted north onto the newly constructed roadway by next Tuesday, ahead of the commute. Along with this traffic switch, drivers traveling along I-94 east will no longer be able to exit at 84th Street. Drivers wishing to use the 84th St. exit will only be able to access it if they are traveling between the Hale and Zoo Interchanges. The closure will remain in place until summer 2018.
To get around this closure you should exit I-94 east at the WIS 100 exit ramp or the 70th Street exit ramp and proceed along either Greenfield Ave. or Bluemound Rd.
As with most traffic changes, it will take drivers several days to get used to the new patterns so plan ahead for both the morning and evening commute.
