I-43 Rock Freeway Bridges

Waukesha County

Project Overview

Location

I-43 Rock Freeway Corridor from Crowbar Road to Beloit Road (County I), Waukesha County

Scope of Work

Crowbar Road Bridge over I-43

  • Beginning in July, Crowbar Road will be closed for approximately 3 months to replace the existing bridge deck. This project also includes painting the steel girders. Painting will be done during nighttime hours requiring single lane closures along I-43.
    • DETOUR: National Avenue (County ES), WIS 164 (Big Bend Road), Janesville Road (County L).

I-43 and Racine Avenue Interchange

  • Lighting within the interchange will be upgraded. This work will be performed using lane closures during day-time off-peak hours.

I-43 Structures over Calhoun Road

  • Work will include the application of a polymer overlay to the bridge deck and painting the girders on these structures. The deck overlay consists of an advanced polymer concrete that quickly develops a high tensile strength to seal, protect and extend the life of the bridges. The overlay work will be done during nighttime hours and will require lane reductions along I-43.

I-43 and Moorland Road Interchange

  • Lighting within the interchange will be upgraded. This work will be performed using lane closures during day-time off-peak hours.

Sunnyslope Road over I-43

  • Sunnyslope Road closed in the middle of June through late fall to replace the existing structure. Southbound Sunnyslope Road traffic will utilize westbound National Avenue (County ES) to southbound Moorland Road (County O) to eastbound Beloit Road (County I) back to Sunnyslope Road. Detour for northbound traffic is reversed.
    • DETOUR: National Avenue (County ES), Moorland Road (County O), and Beloit Road (County I).

I-43 Structures over Beloit Road

  • Work will include the application of a polymer overlay to the bridge deck and painting the girders on these structures. The deck overlay consists of an advanced polymer concrete that quickly develops a high tensile strength to seal, protect and extend the life of the bridges. The overlay work will be done during nighttime hours and will require lane reductions along I-43.

I-43 Overnight Closures

Due to construction activity taking place on structures along I-43, some overnight full freeway closures, as well as lane closures, are anticipated. Detours will be signed for these overnight closures.

Project Schedule

June through late fall, 2018
