Roadwork creates lane restrictions in WisconsinSeveral major highways will have lanes shut down because of construction over the Labor Day weekend.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Several major highways will have lanes shut down because of construction over the Labor Day weekend.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is warning motorists to be aware that some lanes will be closed on Interstate 94 south of Milwaukee, I-94 east of Madison and Highways 41 near Oshkosh and 53 near Rice Lake.
Most road work around the state will end at noon on Friday and resume Tuesday at 6 a.m.
Peak travel times are expected to be from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday and Monday.
Extra Wisconsin State Patrol officers will be on duty as part of a campaign to crack down on drunken drivers and enforce the state's relatively new mandatory seatbelt law. The effort runs through the holiday weekend.
