Interstate 894 Guides
Major projects rebuilt the the Mitchel and Zoo Interchanges with I-94 into high speed systems interchanges. The Mitchell Interchange was reconstructed from a three-wye exchange with left side ramps during a $300 million project completed on November 9, 2012. Prior to a $1.7 billion rebuild, the Zoo Interchange comprised overlapping three wye exchanges with I-94 at the Zoo and Cannon Park neighborhoods in west Milwaukee. The six year project at the cross roads of I-41/94/894 was completed on August 27, 2018. Associated work included reconstructing I-94 between Exit 304 and Exit 306, I-41 north to Exit 40, and I-894 south to Exit 1D. Work on the I-41 leg extends to 2023.
