- Constructing a westbound auxiliary lane from WIS 69 to the West Verona Avenue/Epic Lane off-ramp;
- Adding a second exit lane to the westbound West Verona Avenue/Epic Lane off-ramp;
- Adding an additional southbound through lane at the US 18/151 and West Verona Ave/Epic Lane intersection; and
- Adding a second lane to the eastbound on-ramp from West Verona Avenue/Epic Lane to the existing on-ramp bridge over US 18/151.
Temporary closures and detours are anticipated to occur on US 18/151 and to the Military Ridge State Trail. Temporary ramp closures are also anticipated.
