Second Phase of the Zoo Interchange Project to Be Completed Next Week
Phase Two of the project should be ready for drivers by the end of next week, and the Wisconsin DOT says they're elated for drivers to use the newly revamped roads.
The DOT gave CBS 58 a first look at the soon to be opened system ramps.
The 300 million dollar phase of the project began in fall of 2015.
By Memorial Day, drivers can expect three locations of the nine mile project to reopen.
This includes the Wisconsin Avenue Bridge, the I-94 eastbound to I-41 north system ramp and I-41 south to I-94 east ramp.
The DOT expects a total of around 55 thousand drivers combined to use these roads.
They also believe it will be a relief for travelers who've dealt with this phase of construction for the past eight months.
"Part of the Zoo Interchange Project is to reduce conjestion and improve safety. Once this project is completed that will do that. We're over 50 percent done on the project. We've hit our major milestones, we're on time and on budget. We're in really good shape to continue to deliver the project on time," says Mark Klipstein, Construction Project Manager, Wisconsin DOT.
The DOT says entire project is still on schedule, and should be complete by the summer of 2018.
