The Wisconsin Department of Transportation plans to close northbound and southbound lanes of I-39/US 51 in Rothschild from 10 p.m. on Wednesday August 28 to 5 a.m. Thursday, August 29 for necessary repairs.

During the closure crews will move concrete barriers and pavement marking installations. Closure is necessary to prepare for the I-39 northbound on-ramp opening.

Traffic will be detoured via Business 51 and WIS 29. Motorists should allow extra time for travel.

The I-39 northbound on-ramp from Business 51 is scheduled to open by noon on Friday, August 30.

The schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and construction status.
