Alder Tierney’s Updates

Stoughton Rd - on ramp open tomorrow - update from WisDOT

December 3, 2015 5:54 PM

Hello Everyone.

This is an update for southbound USH 51.

WisDOT is completing modifications to the US 51 traffic staging to allow the southbound entrance ramp from Cottage Grove Road to reopen this Friday (December 3rd). The new temporary configuration shifts mainline US 51 traffic east to provide a separate extended merge lane for the southbound entrance ramp traffic. 

We anticipate this configuration to be in place until June 2016. At that time the ramp will be closed again to complete new US 51 paving and removal of the temporary pavements. Once complete and the final connections are made, the ramps will be reopened in their final condition as a separate ramp bridge and exclusive entrance ramp merge lane. The project is on schedule to be completed in the fall of 2016. 

Thank you for your time and input in this matter. WisDOT staff will continue to monitor traffic safety and operations at the ramp location and throughout the work zone. If you have any questions, please let me know.
