Zoo Interchange Construction Information
The Zoo Interchange project touches the cities of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa and West Allis and will cover about nine miles of freeway leading to and through the actual interchange. The street and highways surrounding the Milwaukee Regional Medical Complex, which includes Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, will be impacted. Check here for updates and resources from the Department of Transportation to help you throughout this long-term construction project.
Work in the surrounding area already has begun. You may experience delays due to lane closures, utility work or detours. To ensure you arrive to your appointments on time, be sure to check the latest traffic information before leaving home. Download a 2013 construction map (PDF).
Traffic alerts: Access from Watertown Plank Road to northbound Swan Boulevard and the on-ramp to U.S. 45 North is closed now through the end of 2014. Use Wisconsin Avenue for construction-free access to U.S. 45 North. The 84th Street on-ramps to I-94 East and West will be closed until late spring 2014. However, traffic still can exit I-94 at 84th Street.
GPS systems will not provide accurate directions during construction. Find the best route based on your starting point.
