I-94 reopens after weekend construction closure

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) Wisconsin's busiest freeway interchange is re-opening today, after most of it was shut down during the weekend. Interstate-94 was closed for 54 hours just west of Milwaukee, for construction work that's part of a $1.7-billion re-building of the Zoo Interchange on 94 at the Highway 45 freeway.

Mike Pyritz of the state D-O-T said all of the scheduled work was completed on time -- and there should be no more traffic delays than usual as the road was to re-open at 5:30 this morning. Pyritz could not say how many vehicles were diverted to detours -- or had avoided the interchange altogether. He said there were no accidents yesterday, after a minor crash occurred Saturday on one of the detour routes.

During the weekend a new railroad bridge was installed over the Interstate -- part of an old southbound bridge on Highway 100 was torn down -- and a large storm sewer was put in underneath the freeways.
