The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, October 2 for the Green Bay Packers/Denver Broncos football game that the road construction season continues on most major roads in Northeast Wisconsin. While most projects will stop and two lanes of traffic will be open, drivers might still encounter road conditions in the work zones that could cause backups. WisDOT strongly recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destinations.
Here is a list of the major roads in northeast Wisconsin most Packers fans will be traveling and the road conditions they should anticipate:
Brown County – drivers will encounter 11-foot travel lanes and reduced shoulders in multiple locations along a 10-mile segment of highway. The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph from Scheuring Road to Velp Ave.
Winnebago County – a majority of 16 miles of highway, from WIS 26 to Breezewood Lane, has restricted shoulders and 11-foot travel lanes. Any minor incident could lead to long travel delays because of the width restrictions on northbound and southbound lanes.
Outagamie County – the speed limit is reduced to 55 mph from County BB (Prospect Ave.) to WIS 96 (Wisconsin Ave.).
Brown County – motorists traveling on WIS 29 will have to drive on 11-foot traffic lanes with reduced shoulders on five miles of highway between County FF to just east of US 41. These restrictions affect both eastbound and westbound traffic lanes. WIS 29 east of US 41 is closed at the intersection of Shawano Avenue and Taylor Street.
WIS 54 (Mason Street) and WIS 172 (Airport Drive)
Brown County – Both WIS 54 and WIS 172 are completely open in Brown County.
