Travel advisory for Minnisconsin fans attending Sunday's Packer home game
GREEN BAY - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region Office is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, September 20 for the 7:30 p.m. Green Bay Packer/Seattle Seahawk football game that I-41 and adjacent roadways from Oneida St. north to Suamico in Brown County are under construction.
I-41, WIS 172 and I-43 could experience significant backups near the stadium, as could the I-41 interchanges at Oneida Street, WIS 172 and I-43. Barrier walls, orange barrels, and narrow lanes will affect travel. Due to the I-41 Project construction, Ashland Avenue through De Pere and Ashwaubenon will also experience increased traffic congestion as additional motorists use this as an alternate route.
WisDOT strongly recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destinations and check WisDOT's 511 website (www.511wi.gov<http://www.511wi.gov>) or call 511. Additionally, motorists are advised to remain alert and plan on exercising patience as they drive through the Green Bay area.
