WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- Motorists can expect even more road construction in central Wisconsin, starting today.
Department of Transportation officials will have lane closures on Business 51 in Rothschild between Eagle Nest Boulevard and Morrison Avenue starting Monday to allow for utility relocation. The southbound Business 51 left turn lane onto County XX by Cedar Creek will also be closed, and drivers will need to use Eagle Nest Boulevard to access the Cedar Creek Mall area.
Ramp closures begin Tuesday on US 51/WIS 29, in Wausau. The closures are necessary for pavement maintenance. Traffic will be rerouted onto Highway 52 during part of the construction. The speed limit will also be reduced to 55 miles per hour in the work zone.
