WIS 19, River Road to I-39/90, Dane County
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Southwest Region in Madison is in the process of developing plans for a proposed project on WIS 19 in Dane County. The purpose of the project is to expand WIS 19 from a two-lane to a four-lane highway from just west of River Road, to the WIS 19/I-39 interchange. Included with the project is the construction of new bridges over the Yahara River and the reconstruction of the River Road intersection as a roundabout. The project is adjacent to a publicly owned property, Cherokee Marsh Wildlife Area, owned by Dane County.
