Wisconsin DOT Plans Work on I-41 from Burleigh Street to Good Hope Road

Post Date:06/11/2019 2:12 PM

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is planning roadway and bridge rehabilitation on I-41, from Burleigh Street to Good Hope Road in Milwaukee County. Read full details.

The project also includes improvements to these areas:

  • Signal upgrades to allow pedestrian push buttons and crosswalks in all four (4) quadrants of the Silver Spring Drive and Lover’s Lane Intersection
  • Addition of monotubes to allow a signal head over each lane in all three intersections
  • Geometric improvements to remove the negative Left Turn Lane Offset at the Silver Spring Drive and Lover’s Lane intersection
  • Improvement of the turning radius on the northwest corner of the I-41 southbound ramp terminal to assist trucks with turning movements
  • Extension of the Left Turn Lane from Silver Spring Drive eastbound to I-41 northbound to provide additional storage
  • A signal will be added at the Good Hope Road northbound exit ramp. Currently there is no signal at this intersection

Construction on I-41 is currently scheduled for 2021. The WI DOT encourages you to provide comments or ask questions during the design phase. Please feel free to contact the project representatives below.
