BRT West Side Meeting

November 24, 2020 4:53 PM

BRT Project - West Side Meeting

Note from Arvina: This meeting will address many changes to Mineral Point Road and Whitney Way that are being planned to the Bus Rapid Transit East-West Route. I encourage all District 11 residents to participate in this meeting if you are able. Thank you!

West Side Refinements
Thursday, December 3 at 6 p.m.
Virtual Meeting via Zoom
Preregistration required - receive zoom meeting link once registered

Please join us for a virtual neighborhood meeting where we will hear about the planned first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system here in Madison - and in particular, some possible changes to Mineral Point Road and Whitney Way. The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 3, 6 p.m. City of Madison Department of Transportation officials will update participants on the progress of the BRT project (the first phase of which will operate between East Towne and West Towne, running through downtown Madison).
Modifications to the Mineral Point Road and Whitney Way corridors will be presented.  For example, the project is considering the creation of bus-only lanes running down the center of the roadway, as opposed to the curb side of the street.  Center-running bus lanes have several advantages, such as allowing for better bicycle accommodations and fostering an improved pedestrian environment.  The creation center-running bus lanes would also potentially restrict left turns by autos at up to four intersections on Mineral Point Road.
You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering.
