Why is it necessary to close the northbound
Closure of the northbound I-39 on-ramp allows for a
safer, more desirable traffic condition for motorists on I-39 during
staged construction. Closure of the ramp simplifies construction
staging for the reconstruction of the southbound I-39
structures spanning Business 51, which reduces the time of
construction and project costs.
Will bicycle and pedestrian accommodations
be included in the project along Business 51?
Yes. The I-39 structures spanning Business 51 will be constructed
to provide future on-street bike accommodations and to allow for the
construction of a future multi-use path along Business 51.
