Madison, Dane County


  • Construction start date: April 2020

Weekly Update – Week of June 1

  • Bridge construction crews have completed bridge repair work in this construction stage and plan on pouring the concrete deck overlay next week.
  • The concrete paving contractor continues to place concrete pavement, curb and gutter, and sidewalk in multiple stages.

*In late June,  the contractor will switch traffic in our Stage 3 to work on the east half of the bridge and pavement approaches.  Despite some recent wet weather,  the project remains on schedule with an expected completion date in late October

  • Traffic volumes have steadily increased on the project as people return to work.
  • We are observing some drivers making left turns where this movement is prohibited.
    • No left turns are clearly marked and in some instances drivers are going against traffic in the wrong lane which can be a dangerous maneuver.
  • In WisDOT work zones,  fines for traffic violations are double.

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
