KENOSHA, WI–Highway W in Wheatland is closed because of erosion along the Fox River.

Kenosha County authorities announced the closure yesterday located near the 77-hundred block of Highway W. Officials say the erosion along the roadway is getting worse due to high water levels in the area.

The posted detour will send drivers to Highways F and JI to get around the blockage.

The closure will remain in effect until erosion control measures are put in place and the roadway is deemed safe for travel.
