Observatory Drive/Willow Creek Bridge paving to cause delays

A paving project on the Willow Creek bridge section of Observatory Drive starts Monday, Oct. 8. Update 10/15/18 – The project has been extended to last through October 17 due to weather conditions.

Two-way traffic will be allowed, although traffic flow will be down to one lane between 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. A flagger will direct traffic through the area.  Alternate travel routes should be considered in order to avoid congestion and delays during the lane closure time. Both lanes will be open at all other times.

Madison Metro bus routes will operate as normal, although delays may occur.

A map of all construction projects and detours can be found on the campus parking maps page. Project dates may change due to weather conditions or other factors.
