Long-term ramp closure from WIS 59 to I-39/90 southbound near Edgerton

Signed detour route: I-39/90 northbound to WIS 73/US 51 interchange then travel south


Starting Monday (July 9), the WIS 59 ramp to I-39/90 southbound, near Edgerton and Newville, will be closed for approximately three weeks. Crews will construct the permanent configuration for this entrance ramp. Motorists are required to use alternate routes, such as the signed detour route of I-39/90 northbound to the WIS 73/US 51 interchange (Exit 160) to turn around and travel south on the Interstate.


All other ramps at the WIS 59 interchange (Exit 163) will remain open.


This work and closure is weather dependent and subject to change, and may be rescheduled to start late next week. Motorists are reminded to pay attention, do not tailgate and drive with caution through all work zones.
