GREEN BAY, WI --A new detour route caused confusion during the morning commmute.

This is because of the Highway 41 construction project. Drivers heading west on Highway 172  got confused because the DOT moved the ramp to Highway 41 southbound overnight.

Starting Tuesday and for the next three months drivers must continue on 172, pass under Highway 41 and use a temporary ramp instead of going north towards Marinette.

"There was some obvious confusion this morning unfortunately, a lot of people got re-directed towards Lombardi. We have message boards out, we have a press release out," said DOT traffic enginner, Randy Asman.

The new ramp access is about one eighth of a mile further west  than the original exit.
