$45 million Beltline flex lane project scheduled to begin in March

A part-time shoulder use lane, or flex lane, with changeable messages and signals to indicate when the shoulders are open or closed for travel, is the key component for a new Beltline Highway project, according to a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

The project between the Whitney Way exit and I-39/90 is scheduled to begin in March and will include resurfacing, improving existing drainage deficiencies, replacement of the existing median barrier wall, and the part-time shoulder travel lanes.
