The city Traffic Engineering Division has two construction projects planned for the Outer Loop that will begin next week, according to the city.
City Traffic Engineer David Dryer said in a news release that construction is projected to last about seven weeks for work on Fairchild and Mifflin streets and more than three months for work on Webster Street.
Fairchild Street & Mifflin Street
Reconstruction of Fairchild Street between Mifflin Street and West Washington Avenue will begin on Monday, according to the city and Raymond P Cattell Inc.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane on this block until the completion of the project in mid-May.
Mifflin Street will be reconstructed between Henry Street and Fairchild Street. Traffic on Mifflin Street between Henry Street and Fairchild Street will remain one-way toward Henry Street through the end of the project in mid-May.
The reconstruction of Webster Street between King Street and East Washington Avenue will begin March 29, according to the city and Capitol Undergroun Inc.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane on Webster Street for the duration of construction.
The intersection of Webster, Doty and King streets will also be reconstructed for the project. King Street will be reduced to one outbound lane of traffic for the duration of construction. Right turns from Doty Street to King Street will be maintained at all times, the city said.
The Webster project is expected to be completed in early July, according to the division.
Access to business will be maintained during the project, the city said in a release Friday. Madison’s Central Business Improvement District has developed a “Downtown Get-Around Guide” to help patrons find their way during the construction projects.
