MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is warning Packers fans heading to Lambeau Field for Friday's preseason game against Seattle to be aware of ongoing road construction.

The DOT says fans should not encounter any significant traffic, but they should still allow extra time to make it to the game on time.

Travel lanes are reduced to 11-feet-wide for 10 miles along U.S. 41 in Brown County. And the speed limit is dropped to 55 mph along a portion of that. Also, the southbound Mason Street exit is closed.

State Highway 29 in Brown County also has narrow shoulders due to a temporary barrier wall at various locations that the DOT says will cause traffic to slow.
