The Madison Beltline will be closed between Gammon Road and Mineral Point Road from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Wednesday evening (Feb. 8) and Thursday evening (Feb. 9) for demolition of the High Point Road bridge. The posted detour route will use Mineral Point Road and Gammon Road. Motorists should expect delays during the overnight hours and use alternate routes.
The bridge demolition is expected to cause significant noise in the area as crews remove the High Point Road bridge deck. The work is scheduled overnight to minimize traffic disruptions on the Beltline, which must be closed for the safety of the traveling public, and to expedite the demolition phase of construction.
Additional bridge demolition with the same Beltline closure is scheduled the evenings of Feb. 13 and Feb. 14. No further overnight demolition work is expected after that. Full closures of the Beltline will be scheduled in late May to set new bridge beams.
