Verona Road work starts Monday
After a short winter break, construction along Verona Road will resume Monday.
The work will be the second year of the first phase, and it will be more involved. Drivers need to be aware of shifting traffic patterns and should expect delays on the project that is expected to last through November.
According to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation:
Initial work will install temporary traffic signals at the Beltline and Verona Road interchange. This will lay the groundwork for a traffic shift starting March 10.
"All traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes of Verona Road between the Beltline and Raymond Road," according to the WisDOT. "Two lanes will remain open to traffic in each direction."
Access to local businesses and neighborhoods will remain intact while crews create a new interchange with the Beltine and a new jug-handle intersection over Summit Road and Atticus Way.
From March through July, traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes of Verona Road while the north side is reconstructed. In July, traffic is slated to shift to the newly constructed northbound lanes will the south side is rebuilt.
