Freeway Service Team
 
The I-41 Project Freeway Service Teams will be working in Brown County on Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and again from 10 p.m. to midnight. The Freeway Service Team will assist motorists - free of charge - who are involved in minor crashes or are experiencing a breakdown. If necessary, the Freeway Service Team quickly relocates disabled vehicles from the highway’s travel lanes and/or shoulders to safe, pre-designated locations away from traffic.
 
Services the team provides include:
•Relocating disabled vehicles
•Providing small amounts of fuel
•Handling minor repairs (changing flat tires, battery jump starts)
•Removing small non-hazardous debris from the roadway 
•Assisting with traffic control and crash scene clearance 
 
Please note if you are involved in a crash:
 
The WisDOT’s Division of State Patrol advises you to immediately call 911 if you are involved in a crash.  If there are no injuries and the vehicles can be moved, report the other vehicle’s license plate numbers as you may then be advised to move off the main portion of the roadway to a crash investigation site or to a ramp out of traffic.  This will assist first responders in reaching you while helping to clear traffic delays during the critical travel times before and following the game.  
 
Additionally, if your vehicle becomes disabled in the I-41 work zone between De Pere and Suamico, notify authorities immediately, and WisDOT will send the Freeway Service Team vehicle to your location. Motorists can then contact their motor club or towing preference after WisDOT has relocated your vehicle to a more accessible and safe location.  
 
Travelers should allow extra time and can check online for real-time traffic information, including travel times, lane closures and incidents, at 511 Wisconsin online at www.511wi.gov or by calling 511.
