Holiday traffic slowdowns expected on US 41 and I-43 in Brown County
May 21, 2014
Roads are open, but some backups are expected
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is reminding motorists heading north for the Memorial Holiday weekend that there is the potential for slowdowns and backups on I-43 and US 41 in Brown County. While the roads are open to traffic, travel could be affected.
- US 41 – due to construction on US 41 throughout Brown County, lane changes, narrower lane widths, lack of road shoulders in various locations combined with peak traffic volumes will slow traffic.
- I-43 northbound – Slowdowns and backups will most likely occur where I-43 northbound merges with WIS 172 during peak traffic times.
Travelers should allow extra time and can check online for real-time traffic information, including travel times, lane closures and incidents, at Wisconsin 511 online or by calling 511 on a phone.
