Beltline to be closed overnight Wednesday, Thursday

Portions of the Beltline on Madison’s west side will be closed overnight Wednesday and Thursday for crews to demolish the High Point Road bridge, according to a release.

The Beltline will be closed between Gammon and Mineral Point roads from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday nights, officials said.

The detour will use Mineral Point Road and Gammon Road.

The bridge demolition is expected to cause noise in the area as crews remove the High Point Road bridge deck, officials said.

Additional bridge demolition is scheduled for Feb. 13 and 14, according to the release. No other overnight demolition is expected after that, but the Beltline will be closed in late May for crews to set new bridge beams.
