Starting Monday, April 1, RG Huston will begin the reconstruction of:

  • E. Wilson Street—S. Franklin St to S Blair Street
  • Williamson Street—S Blair Street to S Blount Street
  • S. Blount Street—Capital City Bike Path to Williamson Street

Only one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction on East Wilson Street and Williamson Street, which will result in peak hour traffic delays.  South Blount Street will be fully closed for approximately one month of the overall project.  Intermittent work along the Capital City Trail will require closures and detours.  Project completion is scheduled for mid-August. 

MG&E Gas will be performing localized utility work in this area beginning the week of March 25 and will continue work during the street reconstruction project. 

In addition to this street reconstruction project, Wisconsin & Southern Railroad will replace the railroad crossing at the Wilson/Blair/John Nolen intersection, which will have major traffic impacts.  The tentative schedule is Wednesday, June 19 through Sunday, June 23.  Updates will be sent closer to that time.
