Lane Closures--West Washington Avenue

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 8:51am

Starting on Wednesday, September 27th, INTREN will begin transitioning their West Washington Avenue work zone from Bedford Street to Broom Street.  The center traffic lanes of West Washington Avenue will be closed in both directions at Broom Street in order to install underground utilities for Madison Gas & Electric. 

The work on West Washington Avenue is part of a project that will install underground MG&E utilities along the centerline of West Washington Avenue from Regent Street to Broom Street.  Work this fall will include installing manholes at Bedford Street (already completed), Broom Street and Bassett Street (see attached map).  Mainline utility work to connect the manholes will occur at a later time. 
The remaining construction schedule is as follows:

  • Broom Street intersection—Wednesday 9/27/17 to Monday 10/23/17
  • Bassett Street intersection—Tuesday 10/24/17 to Wednesday 11/15/17

Left turning movements will be restricted from West Washington Avenue to Bassett Street and Broom Street when work takes place at those intersections. 

Parking will be removed on West Washington Avenue within the work zone. 

Sidewalks will remain open on West Washington Avenue.  One crosswalk will remain open at all times across West Washington Avenue within the work zone. 

Direct any questions to the contact person listed.
