JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation said slowdowns may occur on I-39/90 in Janesville Thursday night, as crews work to repair a southbound interstate bridge.

The southbound interstate will be restricted to one lane from 7 p.m. Thursday, March 26, through 5 a.m. Friday, March 27, near the WIS 26/Milton Avenue interchange (Exit 171A).

WisDOT officials said a 14-foot width restriction will occur within the work zone, and oversize vehicles must use the interchange ramps to bypass the operation.

Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead, use alternate routes, and allow extra time to safely reach their destination.
