Reminder: Northbound lanes on US 41 in Brown County closing over weekend
March 22, 2013
Closure needed for placement of sanitary sewer beneath roadway
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is providing this reminder that unscheduled construction on US 41 this weekend in Brown County will cause significant traffic impacts. All lanes of US 41 northbound from WIS 29 (Shawano Avenue) north to Velp Avenue will be entirely closed from 8 p.m. Friday, March 22 through 5 a.m. Monday, March 25. The southbound lanes will remain open. During this closure, northbound traffic will have to use the signed detours or seek alternate routes.
This unscheduled closure is necessary to continue the installation of a sanitary sewer pipe located approximately 30 feet beneath the highway at this location. An obstruction located under the northbound lanes must be removed to complete the project.
Here are the signed detours and ramp closures for northbound US 41:
- US 41 to WIS 172 eastbound to I-43 northbound to US 41
- US 41 to WIS 29 to Military Avenue north to Velp Avenue west to US 41
- Both the WIS 29 (Shawano Avenue) on-ramp to northbound US 41 and the WIS 54 (Mason Street) on-ramp to northbound US 41 are closed.
The detour for WIS 29 eastbound to US 41 northbound is WIS 29 to Military Avenue north to Velp Avenue west to US 41.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and use caution when driving through this or any work zone.
