Zoo Interchange Project

The North Leg

The North Leg is the final segment to complete the Zoo Interchange. This 1.7-mile reconstruction project will expand I-41 to eight lanes from Swan Boulevard to Burleigh Street in the city of Wauwatosa in Milwaukee County. It includes some of the busiest freeway sections in the state. The project includes new bridges at Mayfair Road, North Avenue, Meinecke Street and a new bridge for the Union Pacific Railroad. The design also calls for several retaining walls and noise walls along the interstate corridor.

North Leg construction has already started with the reconstruction of the Center Street Bridge, Wauwatosa School’s pedestrian bridge and a deep storm sewer. WisDOT completed these projects to specifically accommodate a widened and rebuilt I-41 Zoo North Leg segment.
