STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) - I-39 travelers will have a couple of lane restrictions to deal with this week. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction just north of Stevens Point starting Tuesday. The lane closure is between the 2nd Street overpass and County Highway X near the Highway 10 West interchange. Workers will be taking pavement core samples starting Tuesday and finishing by Thursday, weather permitting.
After Stevens Point work is finished, the crew will be restricting traffic in both directions between Highway 73 and Buttercup Avenue in the Hancock area for the same purpose.
