Bridge polymer overlay, pavement marking project started July 27 on I-94

Beginning Monday, July 27, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is scheduled to kick off a $1.26 million project placing a polymer overlay and new pavement markings on bridge decks along I-94 and US 53 in four northwestern Wisconsin counties.

Next week, motorists can expect overnight lane closures on westbound I-94 in Dunn County as work is performed on structures between Knapp and Menomonie over County K, 650th Avenue, 390th Street and the Red Cedar River. The week of Aug. 3, there will be overnight lane closures on eastbound I-94 as the work is performed on structures at the same locations. Because of this work, the Menomonie Travel Welcome Center is anticipated to be closed between 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3 and 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4.
