Subject: Construction Traffic


The Oshkosh Police Department is monitoring the traffic around the area of USH 41 project as the W 20th Ave and Witzel Ave overpasses have been closed.

At this time, traffic delays are running about 10-15 minutes. Drivers are, for the most part, being patient and going with the flow of traffic. West 9th Ave is seeing the most traffic influx. STH 44 is being under utilized and may be considered as an option when exiting USH 41 or when on S. Koeller St and S. Washburn St. and using an overpass over USH 41.

Special attention should be used by drivers as some of the affected areas have now been posted with no left turns and no parking. An area where there is no left turn is at westbound Oshkosh Ave at Omro Road there is no left turn onto southbound N. Koeller St. This area is also seeing congestion because drivers are not paying attention to the left turn restriction. There is temporarily no parking on the east side of Knapp St. from Witzel Ave. to W. 9th Ave.

Residents and visitors of Oshkosh may go to the City of Oshkosh website at and go to the right side of the screen and click on Traffic Restrictions or the map to guide themselves through construction.

The Oshkosh Police Department will continue to monitor the areas of construction and updates will continue throughout the construction process.

If you have any questions in regards to the traffic in and around the construction area, please contact me at (920) 236-5742 or (920) 379-3572.
