DOT provides Memorial Day weekend travel reminders 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) reminds Memorial Day weekend travelers to slow down on Wisconsin roadways and provides the following safety guidelines: 

  • Buckle up, and stow away phones;  
  • Slow down, and adapt speed based on weather conditions; 
  • Eliminate distractions like prohibited texting while driving; 
  • Move over or slow down for emergency responders stopped along a highway; and 
  • Clear vehicles involved in a crash out of traffic if no one is hurt and the vehicles can be moved safely. 

All Wisconsin rest areas are open. To open as many lanes as possible, most road construction will pause during the weekend. Significant road construction projects or other factors that may impact Memorial Day weekend travel can be found online.
