RACINE COUNTY — The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin work on the central segment of the Interstate 94 north-south project during the week of July 16.
The project stretches 4.5 miles from just north of Highway 20 to just south of Highway G in Racine County, according to a WisDOT release issued Thursday. Work is already underway on the south segment which runs between Highway 142 in Kenosha County and Highway 20 in Mount Pleasant. The first stage of the project will continue until late 2018.
Stage two of the project will shift all traffic onto the current southbound lanes. This matches up with the configuration in place on the south segment. Full access will remain in place at Highway 20.
During stage two, the northbound on-ramp at Highway K will be closed. Highway K, under the freeway, will also see a period of full closures. The duration of the closure on Highway K will be limited. Kraut Road in Mount Pleasant will also be closed to traffic during this stage.
Once stage two is completed, traffic will return to the proper sides of the freeway and three lanes of traffic will be open. Once all work is complete, there will be four lanes in each direction on I-94. All work is weather-dependent.
WisDOT encourages travelers to plan ahead and use alternative routes when able. Access will be maintained to local businesses. Motorists should watch for specialized signage directing customers.
