Knapp hill road construction to begin next week

Road work

Dunn County (WQOW) - A busy stretch of Interstate 94 in Dunn County will go through a major traffic switch next week.

Traffic will be moved to different lanes so the pavement on the Knapp hill can be replaced. 

It's part of a $57.5 million project on an eight-mile stretch of highway.  It includes replacing pavement and six bridges.

Tuesday night, July 14, they plan to designate one westbound lane for trucks and slower vehicles.

The other westbound lane will be moved right next to the eastbound lanes.

That means there will be one lane on one side of the highway, and three lanes on the other side.

The westbound lanes will also be narrower.

The DOT plans to keep two lanes open in each direction during peak times but may go down to one lane at non-peak times.

The project started last year, and is expected to wrap up this November.
