GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers pre-season home opener Friday against the Arizona Cardinals has the Wisconsin Department of Transportation issuing a travel advisory.
The DOT says road construction season continues on most major roads across Northeast Wisconsin. Officials say fans should not encounter any significant traffic impacts due to the construction heading to the game.
However, the DOT strongly recommends drivers allow themselves more time to get to their destinations.
Here is a list of the major roads in Northeast Wisconsin most Packers fans will be traveling and the road conditions they should anticipate:
- 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.
- WIS 29 has narrower shoulders due to temporary barrier wall at various locations that will cause traffic to slow.
