Interstate construction set to start near Edgerton

Nightly interstate lane closures to start Monday

Construction work is scheduled to start Monday on Interstate 39/90 at the Highway 73/51 interchange near Edgerton, according to a release.

The project will improve safety, upgrade the road to meet current design standards, modify the ramps and lengthen the bridge of the interstate, Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials said. The project is part of the work before the interstate expansion from the Illinois state line to the Highway 12 interchange near Madison.

The new bridge over the interstate will be constructed south of the existing structure to maintain access to area businesses and neighborhoods, according to the release. Periodic lane and ramp closures are expected near the interchange, but they are dependent on weather and subject to change.

The $12.3 million project is expected to be completed in November.
