MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is working on a study to find long-term solutions to challenges on the Beltline.
The D.O.T. wants to find answers to alleviate congestion, reduce high crash rates in certain areas and improve the reliability of travel times so buses can regularly use the roadway.
Officials say the Beltline carries up to 112,000 vehicles per day. That is going to increase in the coming years. The D.O.T. says Dane County is on pace to add about 150,000 residents by 2035 and there is no capacity remaining on the Beltline to serve this growth.
Officials are hosting a series of public information sessions so you can learn more about the study. Here are the dates and locations:
Monday, September 9, 2013
Savannah Oaks Middle School, Fitchburg, 5890 Lacy Road
