ROCK COUNTY (WKOW) -- Interstate 39/90 South will be closed between Janesville and Beloit Monday night for repairs.

All southbound traffic will be redirected off I-39/90 at Avalon Road, exit 177, and onto an alternate route.

The road will be closed from 9 p.m. Monday through 5 a.m. Tuesday. The northbound side will stay open.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says it needs to fix temporary pavement laid down as part of the I-39/90 expansion project.

The alternate route will take drivers onto County Roads G and BT, and Shopiere Road. There will be signs directing drivers along the route. WisDOT warns there could be heavy traffic on those roads, and says drivers should expect delays.

The roadwork is dependent on the weather, so if conditions are bad, WisDOT may reschedule.
