MILWAUKEE - Those traveling along I-43 in Milwaukee County are going to encounter slight headaches starting Tuesday.

"The four-mile project will work on 13 bridges along I-43 that link the Mitchell and Marquette interchanges," said Meg Jones with the Journal Sentinel. "Crews will work on bridge deck overlays, repairs and painting."

One lane of the interstate will be closed northbound from Howard Ave. to the Marquette Interchange. The closures are expected to last until 2013's Summerfest.

According to Jones, the following are the northbound ramp closures that are scheduled:

Howard Ave. and Holt Ave. entrance ramp to I-43 northbound.
I-43 exit ramp to National Ave.
Mineral St./Walker St. entrance ramp to I-43 northbound.
Once the northbound closures are in place, crews will begin closing I-43 southbound lanes from Lapham Blvd. to Howard Ave. Those are expected to remain closed until Labor Day and reopen in time for the Harley-Davidson anniversary celebration.

There will be other closures as well.
