Started this thread to talk about projects and traffic in Madison.

With The Beltline frequently backing up westbound due to congestion at the US 151/US 18 Verona Rd Interchage, should the DOT expedite phase 3 of the Verona Rd Project to provide free flow ramps?

We've been advocating that for years.

Why didnít they do that to begin with? Why waste all that money on that stupid SPUI with the three left turn lanes (that still backs up onto the westbound Beltline) if they were going to make it a free flow eventually?

froggie:
IIRC, it was a combination of cost and ROW issues in the southeast corner.  And unless WisDOT has finished up the construction on Verona Rd (US 18/151), that may be contributing to the above-mentioned backups onto the Beltline.

Also, remember that this is in Madison, WI.

'nuff said.
