HOWARD, WI (WTAQ) - Brown County's first flyover ramps will open to drivers on Thursday morning.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced Monday that the new ramps connecting Highways 41 and 29 will greatly help travel.
“Highways 29 and 41 are both backbone routes and have the highest degree of importance within the state transportation system.” said Will Dorsey, NE Region Director, WisDOT “Improving the connectivity of this interchange is essential to the continued safe, efficient transportation between major cities of the state.”
Meanwhile, construction of the Shawano Avenue interchange will begin in two weeks. Shawano Ave. will be closed between Taylor Street and Packerland Drive for 60 days beginning July 7, as will Highway 41 ramps at Shawano Ave.
The ramp from Hwy. 41 northbound to Shawano Avenue eastbound will only be closed for 21 of those days, however.
