The 84th Eastbound exit ramp will close until early June, which means if you take the freeway to the Pettit Center, you will need to take an alternative route. Here are some suggested routes…
From I-894 North… Exit Greenfield Ave. East until 84th Street. Turn left (North) on 84th Street to the Pettit Center.
From I-94 East… Exit Hwy 100. South to Greenfield Ave. Turn Left (East) on Greenfield Ave. to 84th Street and turn left (North) to the Pettit Center… If you miss this exit, you will need to proceed to the Hawley Road exit and get back on the freeway heading West and get off at 84th Street.
From I-94 West… Exit 84th Street. Turn Left (South) on 84th to the Pettit Center on the left.
From South I-41… Exit Bluemound Road East to 84th Street. Right (South) on 84th Street (Glenview) to Pettit National Ice Center on the left.
The 84th Street Eastbound entrance to I-94 Eastbound will remain closed and the access road (Kearney Street) will also be closed. Take Main St (which runs directly in front of the Pettit) East to 70th St., left on 70th (North) to Kearney St., then right (East) to entrance to I-94 East. I-94 Westbound traffic may enter the freeway at 84th St.
Thank you for your patience and consideration. We all will be grateful when the work is completed in June and appreciate the ease of access to the Pettit Center.
