Traffic Alerts for Heading to Saturday's Packers Preseason Game
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region Office is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Saturday, August 29 for a 7 PM Green Bay Packer/Philadelphia Eagles preseason football game that I-41 and adjacent roadways from Oneida St. north to Suamico in Brown County are under construction.
I-41, WIS 172 and I-43 could experience significant backups near the stadium, as could the interchanges at I-41/WIS 172 and I-43/I-41. Barrier walls, orange barrels, narrow lanes will affect travel.
Due to the I-41 Project construction, Ashland Avenue through De Pere and Ashwaubenon will also experience increased traffic congestion as additional motorists use this as an alternate route.
WisDOT strongly recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destinations and check WisDOT’s 511 website (www.511wi.gov) or call 511.
Additionally, motorists are advised to remain alert and plan on exercising patience as they drive through the Green Bay area.
The Art Street Festival will be taking place all weekend in downtown Green Bay. Motorists should be aware that the festival will generate additional traffic going to and from the downtown area.
