Milwaukee Regional Medical Center remains accessible from all directions the week of July 8th

SPECIAL NOTE:  Throughout the week, Hwy 45 northbound and southbound will have overnight lane closures at Watertown Plank Road. Shoulder-paving work is underway in preparation of the Swan Boulevard bridge project.  As a result, the Watertown Plank Road entrances to and exits from US 45 north and south will also be closed from 9pm to 5:30am.  Wisconsin Avenue is the detour for both directions. 

Watertown Plank Road

  • Ongoing utility work on Watertown­ Plank Road will require lane closures that periodically reduce traffic to one lane. Delays may occur. Try using Wisconsin Avenue if traveling from Hwy 45 north or south to avoid congestion. 

Research Park

  • Research Drive at Hwy 100 will shift traffic to the westbound roadway until early August. 

From the North:

  • No restrictions in effect.

From the South:

  • This week, lanes will be closed overnight on I-894/US 45 northbound and southbound at Greenfield Avenue for work on the bridge. As a result, several ramps will be closed overnight in the Zoo Interchange: north-to-south, east-to-south, and west-to-south.
  • On Monday, the Wisconsin Avenue bridge will be closed from 4am-6am to enhance the barrier wall. 
  • Street parking located on the north and south side of Wisconsin Avenue between Hwy 45 and 92nd street will be removed this week to create additional traffic lanes for entrance and exit onto Hwy 45. 


  • Glenview Avenue will be closed this week between just north of the Bluemound Road intersection through just north of the Wisconsin Avenue Intersection. This closure will be in effect until the end of August. The intersection of Glenview Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue, however, will reopen by the end of July.
