[ARCHIVED] Long-term closure on Highway S to begin April 8

Highway S project logo

A long-term closure of Kenosha County Highway S between Highway N (38th Street) and the Interstate 94 East Frontage Road is set to begin Thursday, April 8.

This closure is expected to continue through this fall, as crews work to construct the new Highway S eastbound lanes west of Highway N.

This portion of the road will be closed to through traffic, but access to businesses and residences will be maintained.

Drivers will be detoured around the area via the I-94 East Frontage Road, Highway 158 (52nd Street) and Highway 31 (Green Bay Road).

The closure is associated with the second and final year of a reconstruction and expansion of Highway S from Highway 31 to the I-94 East Frontage Road. Once completed, Highway S will be a four-lane, divided highway throughout this entire stretch.

This year’s work is focusing on construction of the new eastbound lanes. The new westbound lanes were constructed in 2020.

Work on the entire project is scheduled to continue through late 2021.

A project update, including a map of the work area and detour, is available here.
