June 20, 2014
Delays are expected for weekend travelers near the I-39/90/94 work zone in Dane County, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region.
Construction is underway on the I-39/90/94 bridges at the US 151 interchange in Madison. Motorists are encouraged to avoid travel through the work zone during peak times – northbound on Friday afternoons, southbound on Sunday afternoons – or use alternate routes.
Speeds are reduced to 55 mph. Three lanes of through traffic are open in each direction. No construction activities will be occurring during peak travel times but reduced speeds and heavy traffic volumes are projected to create backups.
For up-to-the-minute information on work zones and incidents that may affect highway travel, motorists can use the state’s 511 travel information system by dialing 511 on a phone or visiting Wisconsin 511 online. Statewide travel information is also now available via Twitter at Wisconsin511@511WI. To eliminate distractions while behind the wheel, drivers should use mobile communication devices only when their vehicle is completely stopped and off the traveled portion of the roadway.
