ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Travelers will find it a little more difficult to travel to the Cedar Creek mall business district starting next week.
This is the last weekend of traffic-as-usual for people who use the I-39 and Business 51 interchange, and Business 51 access to shops, restaurants, and hotels in the Cedar Creek Mall area. Starting Monday, construction begins on a project that will last until late next year.
The 12-point-2 million dollar project will require Business 51 to be reduced to one lane most of the time while crews reconstruct all I-39 and Business 51 interchange ramps, reconstruct Business 51 between Village Way and Eagle Nest Boulevard, realign Morrison Avenue with the southbound I-39 ramps, and reconstruct the Cedar Creek bridge. When completed, there will also be a multi-use path along northbound Business 51 from Village Way to Stoney Rivers Drive.
Early stages of the work will focus on the Business 51 corridor from Eagle Nest Boulevard to the southbound I-39 on ramp.
