I-39/90 southbound ramp to beltline reopens

First Warn Traffic Frame

MADISON, Wis. The I-39/90 southbound ramp to the westbound lanes of the beltline has reopened after a day-long construction closure.

According to Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the ramp reopened Tuesday ahead of the morning commute.

The closure was due to the ongoing I-39/90 expansion project.

A release from I-39/90 Project Communications Manager Steve Theisen said the closure allowed construction crews to quickly pave a stretch of road without putting crews or drivers in danger.

Theisen said the closure will allow the project to be completed sooner than if other methods were used.

Construction on the I-39/90 and beltline interchange is expected to be complete by mid-November.
