Transportation Officials Seeking Input On I-94 Project Between Dane And Jefferson County

(Jefferson County) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is seeking input on proposed improvements to I-94 between Dane and Jefferson Counties. The 9.6-mile project starts just east of the County N interchange and ends just east of the Airport Road overpass. Work will prolong the life of the I-94 pavement and structures until a future reconstruction and capacity expansion project can be implemented. The project proposes to extend the service life of the existing pavement by milling the existing asphalt surface, repairing the underlying joints, and placing new asphalt over the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-94. Minor rehabilitation work is also planned for the bridges over I-94 at Baxter Road, Ridge Road, Oak Park Road, and County O; as well as at the eastbound I-94 bridge over the Koshkonong Creek. Construction is currently scheduled for 2027 with the potential for advancement to as early as 2023 should funding become available.

A virtual slide presentation (PDF format) and handout detailing the project are available to view on the project website at: Comments received prior to July 10, 2021 will be included in the environmental document.
