Starting on Monday, April 8, Terra Engineering & Construction will close West Dayton Street between North Charter Street and North Park Street as part of a University of Wisconsin steam tunnel project. 

Included in the project is a full reconstruction of West Dayton Street, which includes storm sewer, underground MG&E utilities, water main, asphalt pavement replacement and spot curb and gutter and sidewalk replacement. 

The West Dayton Street closure is expected to last through October. 

Due to the location of the steam tunnel, the sidewalk on the north side of West Dayton Street will be closed for the duration of the project.  The sidewalk on the south side of West Dayton Street will remain open for the duration of the project.

Bikes will be detoured to the Southwest Commuter Path.

Metro Transit Route 80 buses will be detoured to use West Dayton Street to North Charter Street to West Johnson Street to North Lake Street. 

See the attached map for details on street closure impacts. 

Updates will be sent as traffic patterns change.
