Third public meeting for US 12/18 Freeway Conversion Study, Dane County

November 6, 2013

Study extends from I-39/90 and Beltline interchange to County N interchange

A third public information meeting will occur on Tuesday, November 19 to discuss the US 12/18 Freeway Conversion Study between I-39/90 (Beltline interchange) and the County N interchange in Dane County. The meeting is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. in the cafeteria at McFarland High School, 5101 Farwell Street, McFarland, WI 53558. A brief presentation is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

This meeting will present the recommended freeway conversion alternatives and discuss the impacts associated with the alternatives. Maps of the alternatives will be on display. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, provide input and ask questions regarding this study. WisDOT representatives will be available to discuss the study on an individual basis.

Conversion of US 12/18 to a freeway would eliminate at-grade intersections within the study limits and reduce access to interchanges. The study is evaluating additional interchanges, grade-separated overpasses, and frontage roads to connect local roadways without interruption to freeway traffic flow.

No construction activities are planned at this time.
