“According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation 80,000 to 100,000 people a day pass through an 8-mile stretch of I-94 that is under construction.
It has been a hot spot for accidents.
“From April until August 1, based on our records and the records of the state patrol, we’ve had 13 crashes in and around that construction zone,” said Wisconsin Department of Transportation spokesperson Chris Ouellette.
Ouellette says all the accidents happened when traffic was restricted to one lane in each direction.
Now, traffic moves in two lanes each way, and there are more signs warning drivers of the work zone.
It’s their hope extra signage and increase police presence will keep people alert and alive.”
