I-41 News

I-41 News I-41 Project traffic alerts, closures and news here. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those who live, work or travel in NE WI. I-41 is a 200-mile stretch of highway connecting two crucial economic regions in Wisconsin: southeastern Wisconsin and the Fox Valley.
(20)

Construction spanned over 17 miles of highway in Winnebago County from 2009-2014, and 14 miles in Brown County from 2010-2017. Construction included: traffic lanes expanded from four to six-ten lanes; 16 I-41 interchanges improved (13 interchanges completely rebuilt); 44 roundabouts added; 17 traffic cameras installed along I-41; and an eight-lane Lake Butte des Morts Causeway. The WIS 441 Tri-County Project will reconstruct and expand US 10/WIS 441 from four to six lanes from Cold Spring Road to about 1/2 mile east of Oneida Street (approx. 6 miles). The project addresses safety concerns and traffic demands on one of the region's vital transportation routes. Currently, crash rates on US 10/WIS 441 exceed statewide averages for similar urban freeways. Traffic volume is expected to rise on US 10/WIS 441 in the years ahead, and additional traffic lanes are needed to safely accommodate this increase.

Mission: The I-41 Project & WIS 441 Tri-County Project mission is to provide safe and efficient highway travel throughout Northeast Wisconsin by using innovative techniques and designs. We place a high value on keeping people informed and providing local businesses with support throughout this construction project. We make better roads that make road travel in Wisconsin easier, better and more enjoyable.

Work zone crashes are far too common in Wisconsin, with more than 13,700 during the last five years. April 20-24 is National Work Zone Awareness week. Remember, work zone safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you’re on the road for essential travel, please slow down, be alert, obey crews and signs and give workers space. If we all focus on driving safely, together we can reduce the number of work zone crashes and deaths in Wisconsin. #SafeWorkZonesForAll #NWZAW https://bit.ly/2020WZAW

DYK: Frost tubes are used by highway workers in every Wisconsin county to determine how deep the frost is beneath the road. Once the frost depth hits 18 inches, a frozen road declaration is made, enabling increased weight limits for certain commercial truck loads.

The state’s frozen road law takes effect Thursday, Dec. 19 in the northern half of Wisconsin. The frozen road determination for the southern portion of the state will be made once the frost is deep enough. To see how frost depth is measured, check out this video: https://youtu.be/cGvOoYYKAS0

Snow, which is expected to be heavy at times with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour and reduce visibilities down to around a quarter of a mile less, will continue into the afternoon. The snow will gradually come to an end late this afternoon or this evening. Gusty east to northeast winds will create areas of blowing and drifting snow. The highest additional snowfall totals are expected across far northeast Wisconsin.

Thought you might like this video about road construction....
It’s so great having 441-10 open fully from Oneida to CB! Thanks for years of hard work!
Its great news that the Highway will be fully open by Friday, But where are all the street lights? I see that all the electrical was done but the pillars are still capped off. Was there a change of plans? or is this one of the items move to spring due to the weather?
When is the speed limit on 441/10 expected to return to 65 mph, which is what it was prior to construction? Thank you.
Are there future plans to upgrade the north end intersection with 41/441. Make it more like the 10/41/441 interchange?
Why does it look like there is no off ramp being constructed going east on 10 at Midway Rd?
I just noticed the eastbound on-ramp at Oneida is scheduled for closure long term beginning Tuesday July 7. Will the eastbound on-ramp at Appleton Rd be open by then?
Are there any future plans to change the north end of 441 at 41 to allow higher speed traffic flow? The exit ramp for 41 south onto 441 is awfully tight (to south 41 isn't much better) and tends to slow down right hand lane traffic on 41 south. Ballard could use a much longer merge lane for 41 south too.
What is still going as construction/landscaping next too west 10 at 41 interchange?
Drove through a portion of the DDI, very nice. One concern though is people turning right on red coming off of 10/441 - might need some extra signage or higher visibility to the NO TURN ON RED. Also, when heading west on 10 right after the bridge where the roadway is so much higher than east bound, will there be guard rails eventually installed?? Thanks, keep up the great work.
Time to update your aerial photo of the new interchange now that it is done for the most part.
When is the whole 441 construction estimated finish date?
