GREEN BAY (DOT) - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, December 2, for the Green Bay Packers/Minnesota Vikings game some road construction continues on major roads in Northeast Wisconsin. The good news is most projects have concluded for the year, but drivers might still encounter road conditions in some remaining 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 just south of Scheuring Road to I-43.
Winnebago County – A majority of 12 miles of highway, from 9th Avenue to Breezewood Lane, has restricted shoulders and lane widths. The speed limit on northbound US 41 from US 45 to Breezewood Lane has returned to 65 mph. Southbound US 41 remains 55 mph in this location. US 41 between 9th Avenue and US 45 also remains 55 mph in both directions.
Brown County – WIS 29 is closed to traffic between Packerland Drive and US 41 with all WIS 29 traffic being rerouted to the new Shawano Avenue adjacent to old WIS 29. Access is maintained to US 41 from WIS 29/Shawano Avenue. Backups should be anticipated along this stretch of roadway.
