Capital City Path - Blount St Cycle Track and Crossing
As part of the reconstruction of E. Wilson St., Williamson St. and S Blount St a new cycle track will be built along S Blout St with a separate sidewalk for pedestrians. A new signal at S Blount St. will be installed to allow bicyclists to cross and continue along the Capital City Path along Lake Monona. Project Information

E Johnson St. - Baldwin St. to First St.
This project includes bicycle crossing improvements and new 10-foot wide multi-use path along the south side of East Johnson Street from the Yahara River through North First Street (STH 113). Project Map

Capital City Path at Williamson - Wilson - Blair
Starting June 10 work will continue on the utilities on Williamson St. which will close the sidewalk and path next to the Machinery Row building. During this time bicyclists will be detoured to the Capital City Path, which will be reopening. Bicyclists traveling west will be directed to use Paterson St to reach the Capital City Trail and bicyclists traveling east will once again be able to use the crossing at Williamson/Blair.

On Thursday, June 20 Wisconsin & Southern Railroad will replace the railroad track crossing at the East Wilson Street and South Blair Street intersection. Due to the nature of replacing the rails, this will require multi-day street closures. The Williamson St crossing of the Capital City Trail will remain open throughout the work. Bicyclists traveling to the Capitol Square will be able to continue up Wilson St on Thurs, June 20 and Fri, June 21 by following bike detour signage to go around the construction area. On Saturday and Sunday bicyclists will need to reach the Capitol Square by following Blount to Main St. Project Information.

Capital City Path Resurfacing - Goodman Center to Wirth Court
Phase one of the resurfacing project has been completed and the path is now open from Jackson St to the Goodman Center. Phase two is started and the path from the Goodman Center north through Wirth Court Park will now be resurfaced. The contractor expects to complete this work by June 21 if the weather allows.

E Johnson St
The project has entered Phase 2 and 2B. Sidewalk is closed on the north side of East Johnson and west side of First St. currently. The Yahara River Path on the south side of E Johnson at First St has a short temporary path section at the intersection so please use caution and yield to pedestrians in this area. Project Information.

Bluff St at Blackhawk Ave
Traffic Engineering has worked with the contractor to ensure that access is maintained as intended for bicycles and pedestrians through this intersection. Currently pedestrians and bicycles both need to cross via the crosswalk on the north side of the intersection (across Blackhawk). Black mats will be used to make crossing the gravel easier. Please yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk and on the sidewalk. The contractor will be implementing signage to direct bicycles and pedestrians to the crosswalk. The intersection is anticipated to reopen on Tues, June 18 but will be gravel so please exercise caution.
