During construction, traffic will be maintained with a single lane in each direction, using lane shifts and turn-lane and shoulder closures. In addition, flagging will be used to direct motorists through the WisDOT work zone at times.
Construction is scheduled for completion in mid-August. The schedule is dependent on favorable weather conditions and construction progress.
