This intersection project, involving the City of Madison, Dane County, and Wisconsin Department of Transportation, is proposed to address growing traffic congestion, pedestrian, bicycle, and transit infrastructure shortcomings, and future growth. The construction is planned to begin in the fall of 2012.
An Environmental Assessment Report has been prepared for this project. It is available for download at: M & S EA Report. A copy of the FONSI (Finding Of No Significant Impact) document is available here: FONSI.

The current plan includes an at-grade intersection for North-bound CTH M/Junction Road and Mineral Point Road, and a split grade intersection for South-bound CTH M/Junction Road and Mineral Point Road. A seperate set of lanes are provided on a jug handle for the South-bound moving vehicles on CTH M/Junction Road to make turning movements on Mineral Point Road.
The proposed schedule is to begin work on grading in the fall of 2012. Work on the bridge and surrounding roadways would begin in early spring of 2013 and last through the summer of 2014.
