Traffic almost back to normal on Milwaukee-Madison I-94

After two weeks, traffic is almost getting back to normal on Interstate 94 between Milwaukee and Madison.

Both westbound lanes are open again, but one eastbound lane is expected to remain closed for most of the day while workers put the finishing touches on making them safe.

Both westbound lanes of the Interstate were closed for 28 miles on June 14, as floodwaters from the Rock and Crawfish rivers got close to the edge in Jefferson County.

A temporary crossover was built, so the two open lanes could handle traffic in each direction.

That lasted for eight days until both westbound lanes reopened late Thursday afternoon.

The Department of Transportation said its inspections convinced them the road was safe.

The temporary crossovers will be blocked but they'll be kept in case they're needed in the future.
