People traveling on I-43 around Capitol Drive and Hampton Avenue on the north side of Milwaukee need to prepare for a long-term rehab project starting this week.
The project includes:
- The 1,500-foot highway bridge over the abandoned railroad yard will be removed and replaced with roads in the embankment section.
- Repair or replacement of various trunk and entrance / exit ramp bridges.
- Implement an auxiliary lane between Capitol Drive and Hampton Avenue.
- Consolidate Hampton Avenue traffic into an improved highway exit ramp just south of Hampton Avenue.
- It will replace the existing noise barrier on the west side of I-43, south of the Milwaukee River, and build two new noise barriers north of Capitol Drive on either side of I-43.
- BeerlineTrail Install a new connection on a multi-use trail.
In this range, where the average interstate highway is just below 129,000 vehicles a day, DOT has announced an expected schedule for its impact on traffic.
- First, the I-43 north exit ramp to Hampton Avenue to the west will be closed and completely removed.
- By the end of summer, the I-43 southbound slope from Hampton Avenue will be closed in the long run. Alternately, the lamps are closed near the capitol drive.
- By autumn, the northbound I-43 from just south of Glendale Avenue to Bender Road will have a two-lane configuration until the end of the year. The I-43 Southbound will remain in a three-lane configuration.
Overall, the entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
Recall that lane reductions will begin this week as we work north of the zoo interchange. For this Zipper merge Try to keep traffic safe and as fast as possible.
