Construction The West Waukesha Bypass (unsurprisingly) is not shown on Google Maps, although the Street View is up-to-date enough to show construction on a few side-roads.

I'll believe that this construction is done when I see it myself.

Just got back home from a trip through Dodgeville. US 151 is being rebuilt between the Dodgeville exits, along with all the interchange ramps. Heading east on US 18, the overhead sign for the ramp to US 151 south now contains a state shield error for US 151. Couldn't get a picture, but how does that happen? :poke: :banghead: :pan:

I saw the post about the WI 191 being posted as US 191 before, but we didn't go through downtown Dodgeville today, which is where that error is. Funny, though, that there would be two mistakes in the same city, but in "opposite directions".

I came through that interchange yesterday, too. It wasn't just the US-151 S ramp. The sign for US-18 E / US-151 N / Madison also had Wisconsin state highway shields. Unfortunately my brain wasn't working quickly enough to grab my phone and click a picture.

My one of the weekend was taking WI-82 towards Oxford from Mauston.  When coming to WI-13 the JCT sign has a US 13 shield and then the sign following has 13 and 82 as US Highways from that sign.


So I guess magically at this point I'm in the southern US or along the Atlantic coast at that intersection lol  :spin:

Man, if one of us had a job at some company that makes or installs signs, this kind of shit would never happen.

I saw STH-18 signs along the Beltline during a construction project, and I once saw STH-51 reassurance markers along the side of Stoughton Rd. And I know there was once  a sign along US 12/STH-16 at CTH-A west of Wisconsin Dells, that still showed both highways as US 12/US 16. It appears to be gone now.

As of September, 2015, that sign is correct:

I'll have to take a picture to post here.  My wife and I go to Ontonagon, MI every other month and come up to the intersection.  The sign currently up is US-2/US-41...…….So some point between that image and current date the sign was changed/replaced.  Last visit was about 2 months ago, quoting what was there when we passed this point.

As an Illinoisan, I'm very sorry that the dreaded cameras may be migrating north. Especially for speed limit enforcement, that sounds awful.

So then drive the speed limit and you will never have to worry about a speed camera. I support them because they cut down on tailgating a**holes.

I wonder if the proposed Stage 3 improvements of Verona Rd. will be constructed at some point? Info: https://projects.511wi.gov/veronard/wp-content/uploads/sites/143/map-altstage3.pdf.

I don't care if it takes a half hour to get from the beltline to Verona, I just want to see with my very eyes a Verona Road that is not under construction. I can't remember such a time.

Well it's still not going to be a direct freeway to freeway connection but no question a major improvement form what it was before. At least you will only have 2 traffic lights now instead 5.

You are the one who complains that WIDOT doesn't listen enough to local input, in cases like the west Waukesha bypass and roundabounts as examples, yet it was pretty clear that the locals didn't want the direct freeway to freeway option.

I am not complaining sure I would have liked the freeway to freeway connection I am looking on the bright side as to what we did get and that while not perfect is still better. And yes I still believe the general public should be able to have a say in this after all it's our tax dollars that is being spent. I am surprised at how many on this forum disagree with that but oh well. I am actually starting to warm up to the west Waukesha bypass I would have preferred if I-94 had been widened first but I think this new bypass is going to work out ok.
