The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says most major highway construction projects have concluded for the year.

However, drivers traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday may encounter some ongoing road work as well as heavy traffic.

Traffic is expected to be heavy on Friday, November 22, as deer hunters begin to flock to the woods and again on Wednesday, November 27, when motorists travel for Thanksgiving.

The heaviest traffic day on major highways is projected to be Sunday, December 1, when deer hunters and holiday travelers return home.

Some significant highway projects that may affect Thanksgiving holiday travel include:
-US 41 - Green Bay
-Leo Frigo Bridge - Green Bay
-Zoo Interchange – Milwaukee
-Hoan Bridge – Milwaukee
