Highway 29 traffic could slow due to Packers game

Packer fans traveling through Shawano County may need to plan on extra trave time this Sunday.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region office cautions motorists heading to the Green Bay Packers/Minnesota Vikings football game this that state Highway 29 in Shawano County is under construction, and lane closures could impact travel before and after the game.

Packer travel advisory for Shawano County:

• Highway 29 in eastern Shawano County is reduced to a single lane at various locations in each direction from Highline Road to the Brown County line for resurfacing and concrete pavement repairs.

• Traffic is running counter-directional in the eastbound lanes between Highline Road and County Road C.

• There is a westbound 14-foot width restriction between Highline Road and County Road C.

Higher volumes of traffic can be expected on Highway 29 due to Minnesota fans traveling to the game.
