Project Overview

The City of Madison conducted a corridor study of John Nolen Drive and Blair Street from North Shore Drive to East Washington Avenue including portions of Wilson Street and Williamson Street. The primary goals of the study were identify concepts to improve pedestrian and bicycle access to Law Park along the study corridor, and to determine a preferred alternative for reconstruction of S Blair St from the intersection of Wilson and Williamson Street to East Washington Ave.

Several previous and ongoing studies exist along John Nolen Drive in the study area. The Blair Street / John Nolen Drive Corridor Study sought to build upon these efforts and be mindful of possible long-term visions for the Monona Terrace and Law Park areas.
