New System Ramp closure now in place at Marquette Interchange
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Several system ramps are already closed long-term at the Marquette Interchange. Another system ramp is now added to the list of closures.
Over the weekend the I-43 northbound to I-94/794 westbound system ramp closed for resurfacing and overlay work.
This closure is all part of the Valley Bridge/Marquette Interchange Project. The Valley Bridge was initially constructed in 1967 and the concrete deck was replaced between 1988 and 1989. The decks were widened as part of the Marquette Interchange Project which was completed back in 2008. The southern portion of the bridge was overlaid in 2013. The current work will overlay the northern section at the junction of the Marquette Interchanges fly over ramps to complete the planned maintenance of the structure.
During these closures there will be several detours that will be available to drivers, the Hoan Bridge being one of them. National Ave. will also be an alternate to consider.
On the flip side the I-43 northbound to I-794 eastbound system ramp reopened early Saturday following resurfacing.
As with most changes, be sure to plan on extra time if you use these routes for either of your commutes. Be sure to follow @ABrovelli and watch the CBS 58 Morning News for the latest on the Marquette/Valley Bridge Project and other construction projects throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
