WisDOT Releases Packer Travel Advisory
For the City-Times
Road construction should not hinder game traffic.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Friday, August 23 for the Green Bay Packers / Seattle Seahawks football game that the road construction season continues on most major roads in northeast Wisconsin. The good news for fans is they should not encounter any significant traffic impacts due to construction as they head to the game.
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 as they head for the game and the road conditions they should anticipate:
- Brown County
- 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.
- Brown County
- WIS 29 has narrower shoulders due to temporary barrier wall at various locations that will cause traffic to slow.
