Packers Versus Traffic
MADISON, Wis. (AP) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is warning
Packers fans heading to Lambeau Field for Friday's preseason game against Seattle to be aware of ongoing road construction. The DOT says fans should not encounter any significant traffic, but they should still allow extra time to make it to the game on time. Travel lanes are reduced to 11-feet-wide for 10 miles along U.S. 41 in Brown County. And the speed limit is dropped to 55 mph along a portion of that. Also, the southbound Mason Street exit is closed. State Highway 29 in Brown County also has narrow shoulders due to a temporary barrier wall at various locations that the DOT says will cause traffic to slow.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The halftime entertainment at the Packers preseason game will feature kids from the Waukesha Youth Football League. It's part of the Packers' recognition of USA Football Month. The teams will also be on the field during the national anthem. The Packers have donated more than 3,000 tickets to youth football leagues throughout Wisconsin for the team's home preseason games. The team reminds fans about the enhanced safety measures, which limit the type and size of bags and stadium seats that can be carried into Lambeau Field. A replica of Lambeau Field made of Legos will also be on display in the atrium. It was constructed by Milwaukee School of Engineering students. Friday's game is against the Seahawks.
