Project location

US 151 (East Springs Drive to Main Street), Madison - Sun Prairie, Dane County

Project overview

Construction on this project will involve concrete pavement repair and replacement along mainline US 151, along with the milling of the current shoulders on US 151 and the repaving of 10’ shoulders on the inside lane and 6-8’ for the outer shoulders.


  • April 2018 - June 2018 - Construction anticipated

Traffic impacts/detours

The project will be open to traffic during construction. The patching will occur during the evening hours to impact the least amount of traffic. For both northbound and southbound work this will require a double lane closure, leaving one lane open for traffic during the project. During stage 2A when the lanes are closed near the I-39/90/94 ramps, the southbound US 151 to northbound I-39/90/94 and northbound I-39/90/94 to northbound US 151 ramps will be closed. Signed detours will be posted each night for the duration of this stage.
