WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Wauwatosa drivers are already feeling the traffic congestion as I-41 and US 45 between Burleigh and Watertown Plank Road are closed in both directions for the weekend.

"It’s a headache," said driver David Morris.

Traffic is being directed towards Mayfair Road, an already busy street. For some drivers, it has doubled driving time.

"Nobody's letting you merge and nobody's letting people merge so it's just hectic," said Isai Perez.

Drivers like Giovanni Vang said it usually takes him no more than 15 minutes to get to Mayfair Mall and suggests others to plan their commute for the sake of time.

"People better get up early, more early to go to work," said Vang.

Lane closures on I-41 are due to constriction for a new Union Pacific Railroad bridge over I-41. This began Friday, July 29 at 11 p.m and will last until 5 a.m on Monday, Aug. 1.
