Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is reconstructing I-94 North-South (North Segment) from County G in Racine County north to College Avenue in Milwaukee County.

As a part of the next phase of the project, traffic will be decoupled and shifted to their respective sides of the freeway by 6 a.m. on Sunday, December 22. Three lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction. Work will continue in the median through June 2020.

Saturday, December 21:

  • I-94 WEST (NB), from County G to College Avenue, is scheduled to close to traffic between the hours of 10 a.m. through 6 a.m. as crews work to perform a traffic switch.

Sunday, December 22:

  • I-94 WEST (NB) ramps at Rawson Avenue are scheduled to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m.
  • I-94 WEST (NB) ramps at Seven Mile Road are scheduled to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m.

Detour route: Motorists are encouraged to use College Avenue, County G, 27th Street, and the West Frontage Road to get around the overnight freeway closures.

The speed limit will remain 55 mph between College Avenue and County G.

Additional overnight closures may occur along the I-94 North-South Freeway Corridor that are unrelated to this update. To view all closures on I-94, visit:
