From Channel3000: Vilas Park Drive Construction

MADISON, Wis. — Drivers who use Vilas Park Drive will need to find an alternate route next week.

The road will be closed to traffic starting at 7 a.m. Monday, June 13, until about 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 17 for construction. The parking lots at South Orchard Street and along Edgewood Avenue will remain open.

Crews will be making changes to the road to allow for a new traffic pattern, city officials said Monday. When it reopens, the eastern end of Vilas Park Drive from South Orchard Street to the Vilas Park Shelter will allow for two-way traffic instead of just one-way. The western end of the road from Edgewood Avenue to the shelter will be closed to motor vehicle traffic.

Officials said the changes will make the road and Vilas Park more accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists.
