Blair Street reopens

South Blair Street is now open to both sides of traffic for the first time in two months, according to a statement from the city of Madison. The city closed the street to speed up a construction project focused on safety improvements for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists at the intersection of South Blair Street/John Nolen Drive and East Wilson Street/Williamson Street. To date, the construction team has made underground improvements to sanitary sewer mains and aboveground improvements to sidewalks and pedestrian lighting. Project completion is set for the fall of 2023.
