Monona Terrace Walkway Sinkhole Repair Underwayposted
On Saturday, June 17, a storm sewer located underneath the Olin Terrace walkway connecting Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Monona Terrace failed and created a large sinkhole. Emergency repairs are being coordinated and will occur this week. The hole has been fenced off and fencing has been installed to identify allowable walk routes. Please take extra caution when walking through this area.
Monona Terrace security staff is assisting with visitor movement to assure safe passage into and out of the facility as it hosts a national conference this week. Shake the Lake activities on Saturday will not be affected by the sinkhole as access to Monona Terrace will be maintained at all times.
The Wednesday Dane County Farmers’ Market normally located on the 200 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will need to be relocated this week to allow for repair equipment staging. The June 21 market will be held in the Madison Municipal Building parking lot behind 215 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
