Verona Road update

Construction crews began work again on the Verona Road project late last month. Traffic is expected to shift to the east side of the road later this spring as crews work on the west side, including the interchange ramps between Williamsburg Way and County Hwy. PD.

Earlier this week, Verona Road (US 18/151) was closed for nearly 10 hours after a contractor vehicle hit the span wires for the temporary traffic signals at the Raymond Road intersection. On behalf of the Verona Road Project team, we appreciate the public's patience during the closure. We also recognize the quick response and coordination from WisDOT electricians and contractors to make the repairs, as well as local law enforcement to help manage the traffic flow.

As crews start to wrap up operations for the 2018 construction season, daytime and nighttime lane closures are anticipated on Verona Road between Raymond Road and County PD/McKee Road in Fitchburg. Please be alert, don't tailgate and put down the distractions when driving!!
