Meeting scheduled to discuss High Point bridge project
City will also discuss West Towne Bike Path Project at meeting
MADISON, Wis. — A meeting to discuss the High Point bridge replacement over the Beltline will be held Tuesday, according to a release.
The city of Madison will also present information on related plans for a bike and pedestrian path parallel to the Beltline between High Point Road and Grand Canyon Drive, officials said.
The meeting is scheduled from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the City of Madison West District Police Station at 1710 McKenna Blvd. Wisconsin Department of Transportation representatives will also be available to discuss the project on an individual basis at the meeting.
The bridge project will consist of replacing the existing bridge and reconstructing 0.26 miles of High Point Road between Goldenrod Lane and D’Onofrio Drive to accommodate four lanes of traffic and bike lanes, according to the release. A sidewalk will also be added to the east side of the road and a multiuse path will be added to the west side.
The city of Madison will also present information on plans for a bike and pedestrian path parallel to the Beltline between High Point Road and Grand Canyon Drive, according to the release. The path would be on the north side of the Beltline along West Towne Mall.
The path would connect to the new High Point bridge, cross south over the Beltline and connect with existing paths to Watts Road and Commerce Drive, officials said. At the east end, near Grand Canyon Drive, the path would connect to the existing path running on the north side of the Beltline between Grand Canyon Drive and Medical Circle.
