GREEN BAY (DOT) - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Friday, August 9 for the Green Bay Packers-Arizona Cardinals game that the road construction season continues on most major roads in Northeast Wisconsin. Fans should not encounter any significant traffic impacts due to construction as they head to the game.
The 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:
- 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.
- The US 41 southbound Mason Street exit is closed. All traffic going to Mason Street from US 41 southbound must exit at the off-ramp to WIS 29. They will then continue south on the WIS 29 on-ramp back to US 41 southbound. At the top of the ramp, the left lane merges back onto US 41 southbound and the right lane continues to Mason Street.
- WIS 29 has narrower shoulders due to temporary barrier wall at various locations that will cause traffic to slow.
