MADISON – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) is beginning work on WIS 153 from Old Highway 51 to East View Drive and on the northbound and southbound I-39 ramps at WIS 153.
Construction is expected to continue through 2021.
“Work in fall 2020 will include reconstructing sidewalk curb ramps and installing traffic signal loop detectors. Asphalt paving and interchange ramp work will occur in spring of 2021,” a Wisconsin DOT release said.
WIS 153 westbound and eastbound will have a single lane closure in each direction. Traffic will be shifted into the inside median lanes from Old Highway 51 to East View Drive.
In 2021, the release said that “I-39/US 51 northbound and southbound off ramps will be closed for three weekday nights each, and the on ramps for a weekday night each. During those times traffic will be detoured using IH39/US51 and the next available interchange.”
No work will occur on Memorial Day weekend, from May 28, at noon, until June 1 at 6 a.m.
