Johnson St. between Fordem & First closed next weekend

July 24, 2015 5:43 PM

The Wisconsin and Southern Railroad (WSOR) will be replacing both of the East Johnson Street Railroad Crossings near Fordem Avenue beginning on July 31. This will require complete closure of East Johnson Street between Fordem Avenue and North First Street. Starting at 1 AM Friday July 31st thru Sunday evening at 6 PM, East Johnson Street will be closed to install the new concrete panel crossings and asphalt approaches. The contractor's working hours will be 6 am to 8 pm for Friday and Saturday, and 7am to 6 pm on Sunday.

The WSOR and the City of Madison worked diligently to limit the amount of time required to close the road for the crossing work. Due to the nature of replacing a crossing it cannot be done in halves, so the entire road will be closed. This also reduces the time that traffic on the road will be impacted. The entire project is being funded by the State and WSOR. The contractor hired by the WSOR to replace the crossing will be required to work through the weekend to accommodate the expedited schedule.

As part of this project, message boards will be put up one week in advance of the work to inform roadway users of the upcoming crossing replacement. There will be a marked detour to route traffic around the construction.
