Speed Reduction on Mineral Point and Other Highlights for the Week of August 29, 2022

August 29, 2022 9:27 AM

Vision Zero Continues Speed Reductions on a Section of Mineral Point Rd

Starting today (8/29), the next 2022 roadway improvement scheduled through the Vision Zero initiative takes place to a section of Mineral Point Rd, from S Whitney Way to the Beltline. This key roadway is home to commercial retail, including West Towne mall, schools and is a key road leading to the beltline. This speed reduction from 40 mph to 35 mph should not affect travel times on this stretch of roadway.

There are future plans in 2023 and 2024 for improvements along this stretch of Mineral Point Rd, including a shared use path which will increase the protection for those traveling not in a vehicle. These improvements will ensure a safer travel for pedestrians and bicyclists along Mineral Point Rd, but also provide vehicles with a buffer from those most vulnerable. City Traffic Engineering also applied for, and received, a federal grant to make safety improvements at the Mineral Point Rd and High Point Rd intersection.

  • Additional streets scheduled for speed limit reductions in 2022 include:
    • Old Sauk Road, from the Beltline to Westfield Road (reduced to 30 mph from 35 mph)
    • Portage Road, from E. Washington Avenue to Hanson Road (reduced to 25 mph from 30 mph) Segoe Road, from University Avenue to Odana Road (reduced to 25 mph from 30 mph)
