The high temperatures last week caused areas of pavement to buckle on I-94 near Hudson.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) county crews will be making additional repairs to the interstate, just east of Carmichael Road's westbound off ramp to a blow-up that occurred last Friday.


Beginning around 9 a.m., the right two lanes of west bound I-94 at Milepost two will be closed while crews make temporary repairs to the roadway. They are expected to be there until approximately 3 p.m. County crews will make permanent repairs to the area after the fourth of July holiday weekend.

Motorists should also be aware of the Move Over Law in Wisconsin. The law requires drivers to shift lanes or slow down in order to provide a "safety zone" for a squad car, ambulance, fire truck, tow truck or highway maintenance vehicle that is stopped on the side of a road with its warning lights flashing.
