Welcome to the I-94 North-South Freeway Project Web site. Learn about this 35-mile reconstruction of I-94, and use the tools highlighted below to best navigate construction.
WisDOT is happy to announce that the Mitchell Interchange reconstruction, as part of the I-94 N-S freeway reconstruction project, is approaching completion in the near future.
To help assist drivers navigate the ramps and roadways in the newly configured Mitchell Interchange, WisDOT has put together a "Mitchell Interchange User Guide" that can be found at the following locations on our website:
Thank you for your patience during the I-94 N-S Freeway Project's roadway closures.
Diamonds replace scissors
The eight interchanges in Racine/Kenosha that have crisscrossing scissor ramps will be replaced with safer, conventional diamond ramps that separate the frontage roads from the exit/entrance ramps.
Rising traffic volumes
I-94 in Kenosha County is the busiest highway crossing at a Wisconsin state border, with about 82,000 vehicles per day. Traffic volumes on I-94 have grown between 17% and 31% since 1994.
What’s a double-U ramp?
The 27th St. interchange at I-894 will be reconstructed with U-ramps. This will improve traffic flow, allowing drivers to avoid traffic lights and enter the freeway via right-hand turns from 27th St.
How many interchanges?
There are 18 service interchanges within the I-94 N-S Freeway Project limits. Seventeen of those interchanges are being rebuilt.
How many miles?
There are 35 miles within the I-94 N-S Freeway Project limits.
What’s the volume?
The highest total traffic volume along the corridor is at Grange Ave. with 161,400 vehicles per day. The lowest total traffic volumes are at the Racine/Kenosha County line with 76,000 vehicles per day.
The project is scheduled for completion in 2021.
