ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAU) - One of the planned road closures for today has been delayed. Department of Transportation officials had planned to complete paving in the southbound lanes of I-39 and Highway 51 by the Wisconsin River and exit 185 southbound to Business 51 by Cedar Creek. The work was to take place overnight tonight, but it has been delayed until next Thursday, October 17th.
The ramp will be closed between 8 o’clock Thursday night and 5:00 a.m. Friday morning to allow paving crews to work on the closed section of freeway.
Northbound ramps to Business 51 will be unaffected, and north and southbound I-39 traffic will continue using the existing temporary lanes.
