WisDOT will be closing the roundabout under Verona Road near the Allied Drive neighborhood (See attached) on Friday December 19, 2014 starting at 8:15AM. WisDOT needs to conduct our initial bridge inspection of the Verona Road Bridge and cannot safely conduct this inspection without closing the roundabout to traffic. We are planning on reopening the roundabout by 12:45PM once we have concluded our inspection. WisDOT will be setting up traffic control to fully close this roundabout. In addition, WisDOT will be sending out a press release to the public and notifications to the businesses in the area.
Verona Road (US 18/151) (Beltline to Raymond Road): The project is expected to be completed 2019.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is overseeing a multi-year reconstruction project that will improve Verona Road (US 18/151), a heavily-used highway in Fitchburg and Madison.
The project is divided into two stages:
- Beltline (US 12/18), from Whitney Way to Seminole Highway
- Verona Road, from Raymond Road to Nakoma Road
- Construction scheduled for 2013-2016
- Verona Road, from County PD (McKee Road) to Raymond Road
- Construction scheduled for 2017-2019
Access to area businesses and neighborhoods will remain open for motorists with destinations in the work zone.
Commuters and through travelers are urged to use alternate routes to avoid expected delays.
