RACINE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) One of Wisconsin's busiest freeways will begin a new phase of road construction today. Sixteen miles of Interstate-94 will be resurfaced in Racine and Milwaukee counties -- the route that thousands of drivers take between Milwaukee and Chicago each day.
The new road work begins in Racine County, close to the Kenosha County border. There will be ramp closures and detours along the way, when necessary. For now, one of the three northbound lanes will be closed during the day -- and two lanes in each direction will be closed late at night, starting at 9:30. It's part of a major rebuilding of I-94 from Milwaukee to the Illinois line.
The current phase is scheduled to run through late July, at a cost of almost $10-million.
