Traffic alert for Badger fans

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region encourages Badger football fans to plan ahead and use caution if traveling to Camp Randall for Saturday's 11 a.m. kick-off. The Madison Beltline (US 12/18) and Verona Road (US 18/151) are under construction. Beltline work will be halted five hours before and after the game, but orange barrels, temporary lanes, ramp closures and reduced speeds combined with game day traffic will cause delays.

WisDOT recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destination. Alternate routes in Madison are likely to have delays due to game traffic and local construction projects, as well. Motorists are urged to remain alert for state and local work zones and plan on exercising patience as they drive through the area.

The City of Madison is asking motorists to avoid East Johnson Street after the game. One lane of traffic is maintained between N. Butler and N. Baldwin. Exiting game traffic is expected to see severe delays. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes or to stay after the game to allow heavy traffic to clear. 

Traveler information for all state highways can be found at or by dialing 511.
