With the completion of the 18.5 miles of interstate along I-94 from College Avenue to WIS 142, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation finished the last leg of the I-94 North-South Project. This section of the project had a $410 million price tag and was completed on time and budget.
The entire 35-mile I-94 North-South Project corridor stretches from the Mitchell Interchange to the Wisconsin/Illinois border. Modernization has already induced significant private investment along the corridor, including by companies such as Uline, Amazon, and Haribo.
Before the improvements, there were approximately 800 crashes each year on this primary connector between Milwaukee and Chicago. WisDOT officials are confident the number of accidents will fall significantly with the completion of the project.
