Traffic slowed near Zoo Interchange as long-term ramp closures take effect

Traffic near Milwaukee's Zoo Interchange was heavy Monday morning as high impact lane closures took affect late Sunday night.

The Zoo Interchange S-W (I-894/US 45 northbound to I-94 westbound) and E-S (I-94 westbound to I-894/US 45 southbound) system ramps closed long-term Monday morning. These long-term closures will help facilitate construction of the new interchange.

The Zoo Interchange S-W system ramp is expected to remain closed through late 2015 as the new S-W system ramp and I-894/US 45 roadway is constructed. The Zoo Interchange E-S system ramp is expected to remain closed through Fall 2017 as the new Zoo Interchange system ramps as well as the I-894, US 45, and I-94 roadways are constructed.

Here's a guide to getting around the construction.
