Public meeting for High Point bridge replacement and bike/pedestrian connection, Madison

September 23, 2013

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting to discuss the High Point bridge replacement over the Madison Beltline (US 12/18). In conjunction with the meeting, the city of Madison will present information on related plans for a bike and pedestrian path parallel to the Beltline between High Point Road and Grand Canyon Drive.

The meeting will be Tuesday, September 24 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in the Community Room, City of Madison West District Police Station, 1710 McKenna Boulevard, Madison.

The bridge project will consist of replacing the existing bridge and reconstructing 0.26 miles of High Point Road between Goldenrod Lane and D’Onofrio Drive. High Point Road will be widened to accommodate four lanes of traffic and bike lanes. Sidewalk will be added to the east side of High Point Road and a multi-use path will be added to the west side. Retaining walls will be constructed in the southeast, northeast and northwest quadrants of the bridge project.

The City of Madison will present information on related plans for a bike and pedestrian path parallel to the Beltline between High Point Road and Grand Canyon Drive. The proposed path would be located on the north side of the Beltline along West Towne Mall. The path would connect to the new High Point bridge, cross south over the Beltline, and connect with existing paths to Watts Road and Commerce Drive. At the east end (Grand Canyon Drive), the path would continue east and connect to the existing path running on the north side of the Beltline between Grand Canyon Drive and Medical Circle.
