  • People attending the upcoming Brewers-St. Louis Cardinals games at Miller Park need to be reminded that the park can be a sauna on days like these. To combat that, the Milwaukee Brewers will let fans bring in un-opened water and soda containers.

MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers are away this weekend, but the team wants to remind Kenny Chesney fans attending the concert this weekend at Miller Park that traffic may be delayed because of construction in the area.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation said they will be fully closing I-94 North-South from 27th Street to College Avenue. The closure will take place from Friday evening, May 17 through Sunday morning, May 19.

The scheduled closure will run through the Saturday, May 18 “Corona Light presents Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation” concert at Miller Park.


The Brewers suggest the following two detours -

Alternate 1: Exit I-94 WEST (NB) at 27th Street. Continue (north) on 27th Street to Lincoln Avenue. Turn left (west) on Lincoln Avenue followed by a right (north) onto 43rd Street/Miller Park Way.


Alternate 2: Exit I-94 WEST (NB) at 27th Street. Continue (north) on 27th Street to I-894 WEST. Continue (west) on I-894 WEST to I-894 NORTH. Continue (north) on I-894 NORTH to I-94 EAST and follow to Miller Park.
