The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is reminding motorists heading to the Packer game Sunday that the Leo Frigo (I-43) Bridge over the Fox River remains closed, and US 41 is under construction.
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:
Leo Frigo (I-43) Bridge
•Bridge remains closed.
•The Leo Frigo Bridge/I-43 bypass is US 41 to WIS 172.
•Approximately 30,000 vehicles travel across Leo Frigo on a Packer home game. This traffic will be diverted onto other city streets, US 41 and WIS 172. Expect heavy congestion on US 41 and WIS 172 on Sunday between 8 a.m. and noon and again between 3 and 6 p.m.
•Alternate routes for Packer traffic to use on city streets include:
◦Fox River bridge crossings at Main Street, Walnut Street and Mason Street
◦I-43 exit at Mason Street (Eastside)
•Local residents are strongly encouraged not to use US 41 or WIS 172 on game day.
•WisDOT will have eight message boards alerting Packer travel to WIS 172 detour.
•WisDOT has an extra Freeway Service Team dedicated to WIS 172 to quickly remove any disabled vehicles. They will be operating from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
•The Wisconsin State Patrol has an additional seven officers patrolling I-43, US 41 and WIS 172 to assist motorists.
All construction on US 41 will cease on Packer game day, although barrier walls and orange barrels will be present in various locations
◦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 Grant Street to I-43. Temporary barrier walls at various locations will cause traffic to slow.
◦Eastbound WIS 172 to northbound US 41 ramp is closed due to a bridge demolition that began before the Leo Frigo Bridge incident. Eastbound WIS 172 traffic wanting to exit to northbound US 41 will continue east on WIS 172 and take the Oneida Street/Ashland Avenue exit which ends at Vanderperren Way; take Vanderperren Way west to Holmgren Way, follow Holmgren Way north to Pilgrim Way and take Pilgrim Way east to westbound WIS 172 on-ramp to northbound US 41.
◦The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph on I-43 between Atkinson Drive and US 41.
◦WIS 29 has narrower shoulders due to temporary barrier wall at various locations that will cause traffic to slow.
