I-94 North-South Project in full swing at Ryan Rd.
The I-94 North-South Freeway Project stretches some 35 miles between the Mitchell Interchange in Milwaukee through Racine and Kenosha counties to the Illinois state line. The project will expand the interstate to four lanes when completed and will help ease delays for travelers heading to and away from Milwaukee.
Ryan Rd. is one area in the project that will undergo several changes over the next year. The Park and Ride recently closed for reconstruction that is expected to last until the Fall of 2018.
Along with this closure the project also entails the reconstructing the Ryan Rd. overpass bridges, the entrance and exit ramps to and from I-94, and adjacent retaining walls and sign structures. It also includes three culvert extensions along I-94 at Puetz Rd. and Drexel Ave. If you’re traveling in the area be prepared for the following changes over the course of the year:
- The aforementioned Ryan Road Park and Ride is now closed long term.
- Lanes will begin to close starting December 7th along the east and westbound stretch of Ryan Rd. over the I-94/41 corridor.
- Single lanes along Ryan Road will be open heading eastbound and westbound across the bridge.
- Ramps to remain open throughout the project (except for minor short term closure to match new roadway configuration)
- There will be nightly freeway closures during the demolition of the older bridge.
- Minimal impacts to I-94 mainline.
As with most changes in our area be sure to plan on extra time if you use these routes for either of your commutes. Be sure to follow @ABrovelli on twitter and watch the CBS 58 Morning News for the latest on the I-94 North-South Freeway Project and other construction throughout southeastern WI.
