New temporary ramp now open at Wisconsin Avenue/US 45
Oct. 26, 2012 College News - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has opened the northbound U.S. Hwy 45 new temporary exit ramp to Wisconsin Avenue.
Other temporary changes on Wisconsin Avenue and 95th Street will help alleviate traffic congestion during the Zoo Interchange reconstruction project. This includes:
Adjustments to turn lanes on Wisconsin Avenue between U.S. 45 and 92nd Street
Driveway and sidewalk modifications
Building a temporary cul-de-sac on 95th Street
Installing a temporary traffic light at 97th Street and Bluemound Road
Lengthening the left turn lane on Bluemound at 97th Street
Motorists are reminded that 95th Street is now a cul du sac where it intersects with Wisconsin Avenue and is closed to through traffic. The cul de sac will remain in place until the completion of the Wisconsin Avenue and Bluemound Road interchanges, likely reopening 95th Street to through traffic in 2016 or 2017.
