GREEN BAY - A U.S. 41 on-ramp is closing for 9 days so road construction crews can do some heavy lifting.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the northbound 41 on-ramp from Velp Ave. will close at 5 a.m. Thursday, April 17 until 5 a.m. Saturday, April 26.

The closure is needed to set steel tub girders over the Velp Ave. interchange.

Drivers headed on northbound U.S. 41 will be detoured south on U.S. 41 to WIS 29, take WIS 29 east to northbound U/S/ 41. Westbound Velp Ave. will also be prompted to take Atkinson Dr. north to northbound I-43 to northbound U.S. 41.
