Path Detour on John Nolen / Capital City Path

On May 19, construction will begin on new railings and other improvements at the southern-most Causeway bridge on the John Nolen Path (a-k-a Capital City Path), just north of Lakeside Drive. This project will necessitate closing the section of bike / pedestrian path from Lakeside Drive to North Shore Drive, and users will be requested to use a detour route around the construction.

Please see the Detour Map for the location of the construction and detour route. The construction is expected to continue for approximately 3 weeks. The improvement will widen the path and approaches to the bridge, similar to the project done on the two northerly bridges a couple years ago. For more information please contact Steve Sonntag in Madison Engineering. Thanks for your patience and please use caution in the vicinity of the construction.



Detour on bike / pedestrian path in Elver & Reindahl Parks

Beginning April 28, construction will begin on new splash pads in Elver and Reindahl Parks. These projects will necessitate closing a section of bike / pedestrian path in both parks, and users will be requested to use a detour route around the construction sites.

Please see the Elver Park Detour Map (PDF) and Reindahl Park Detour Map (PDF) for the location of the construction and alternate routes. The construction in Elver Park is expected to continue until July 7, and in Reindahl Park until June 20.

For more information please contact Sarah Lerner in Madison Parks. Thanks for your patience and please use caution in the vicinity of the construction.
