Public hearing set for Broadway/South Towne bridge project

Planned construction work at the West Broadway/South Towne bridge over US 12/18 will be the subject of a public meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 5–7 p.m., at Badger Rock Middle School, 501 E. Badger Road, Madison.

The program will be hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to familiarize local residents and businesses with the purpose and need for the project, and to provide specifics on traffic impacts during construction. Adjacent property owners are encouraged to attend the meeting.

According to the DOT, work is scheduled to begin in April 2020. Crews will replace the bridge approaches and deck, and they will install new sidewalks, lighting, and signals. During construction, turn movements will be restricted at the West Broadway/South Towne interchange.
