All ramps closed for I-94 and Highway 93 until Wednesday morning

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW)- If you plan on taking Interstate 94 or Highway 93 next week, be prepared for changes.

Beginning 4 a.m. on Monday, all access to I-94 from Highway 93 and vice versa will be closed for construction. 

Ramps will be shut down until Wednesday morning at four o'clock when the entrance ramps to I-94 will reopen.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the construction project is on schedule to be finished by early November.

Regional Communication Manager for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Chris Ouellette says they faced only one major issue during this project.

"During the summer months when traffic on the interstate is higher on the weekends, we have had backups on the interstate, primarily east of 94," she says. "Working with our partners at the Wisconsin State Patrol, we have tried our best to mitigate that by closing ramps."

To repeat -- all ramps at 93 & 94 in Eau Claire will close at 4 a.m. on Monday so they can be repaved.
