Headed to Lambeau Field tomorrow night? Check the travel conditions

The Green Bay Packers will conclude their preseason schedule Thursday night, Aug. 30, with an early evening game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

While this final game will be played without most of the starting units for both teams, Lambeau Field will again be filled with Packers and Chiefs fans who will make the trek to Green Bay throughout the day.

What they may find, especially during arrival are a number of routes that will be clogged with vehicles, not only because of the sheer volume, but because of a number of roads that are under construction in and around the city.

To ease the pain of travel, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has provided a handy guide describing the best routes and what to expect.

The following is the complete guide provided by the DOT:

Packer travel advisory – Road construction
update in Northeast Wisconsin
(Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Thursday, August 30 for the Green Bay Packers/Kansas City Chiefs 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:
US 41
·        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 just south of Scheuring Road to Velp Avenue. Access to southbound US 41 from Ashland Avenue is maintained through the use of a temporary access road; however, due to expected high levels of traffic motorist will be directed to WIS 172. The southbound US 41 on-ramp from Main Avenue is closed.
·        Winnebago County –  A majority of 12 miles of highway, from 9th Avenue to Breezewood Lane, has restricted shoulders, 11-foot travel lanes and speed limits reduced to 55 mph in both directions.
WIS 29
·        Brown County – Motorists traveling on WIS 29 will have to drive on 11-foot traffic lanes with reduced shoulders on five miles of highway from County FF to US 41. These restrictions affect both eastbound and westbound traffic lanes.
WIS 54
·        Brown County – The WIS 54 and Seminary Road intersection has been reconfigured during roundabout construction that could slow traffic and cause backups at this location.
I-43/Leo Frigo Bridge
·        Brown County – Traffic on I-43 at the Leo Frigo Bridge is reduced to a single lane with speeds reduced to 55 mph in both directions over a 3.5-mile segment of the highway. In addition, the northbound I-43 on-ramp from Webster Avenue and the southbound I-43 on-ramp from Atkinson Drive are closed to traffic.
