West Washington Lane Closures
Starting on Thursday, October 12th, INTREN will begin transitioning their West Washington Avenue work zone from Broom Street to Bassett Street. The center traffic lanes of West Washington Avenue will be closed in both directions at Bassett Street in order to install underground utilities for Madison Gas & Electric.
The work on West Washington Avenue is part of a project that will install underground MG&E utilities along the centerline of West Washington Avenue from Regent Street to Broom Street. Work this fall will include installing manholes at Bedford Street (already completed), Broom Street (already completed) and Bassett Street (see attached map). Mainline utility work to connect the manholes will occur at a later time.
The remaining construction schedule is as follows:
- Bassett Street intersection—Thursday 10/12/17 thru Friday 11/3/17
Left turning movements will be restricted from West Washington Avenue to Bassett Street.
Parking will be removed on West Washington Avenue within the work zone.
Sidewalks will remain open on West Washington Avenue. One crosswalk will remain open at all times across West Washington Avenue within the work zone.
