I-94 North-South (North Segment) Traffic Switch

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is reconstructing I-94 North-South (North Segment) from County G in Racine County north to College Avenue in Milwaukee County. All lanes will be open by Memorial Day 2020.

As part of the next phase of the project, crews will work to construct the new I-94 EAST (SB) lanes between Ryan Road and County G. This work will require all traffic to be shifted to the east, crossed over to the current northbound side of I-94. The southbound ramps at Seven Mile Road will also be closed and reconstructed at this time.

The following work and closures are scheduled to begin overnight Saturday, February 2:

All traffic on I-94 North-South, between Ryan Road and County G, is scheduled to be crossed over to the current northbound side of I-94 through summer 2019. Three lanes will be maintained in each direction.

I-94 EAST (SB) exit ramp to Seven Mile Road scheduled to close through summer 2019

Seven Mile Road entrance ramp to I-94 EAST (SB) scheduled to close through summer 2019
