2 interchange ramps along Beltline closing for 3 weeks as part of ongoing improvement project

A rendering of "Flex Lane" by WisDOT. Changeable messages and signals will be used to indicate when the shoulders are open or closed for travel, such as the green downward arrow pictured above and a red "X" when the lane is closed. 

A pair of interchange ramps along the Beltline will be closed for three weeks starting Monday as part of the ongoing project to improve the highway.

The Todd Drive ramp to the eastbound Beltline and the eastbound Beltline ramp to southbound Fish Hatchery Road will be closed starting Monday until April 19, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Northbound Fish Hatchery Road will still be accessible. 

Drivers will need to use alternate routes during the three-week closures.

Ramp closures and project work are dependent on weather and subject to change, WisDOT said.

The $45.1 million project is set to improve the Beltline in several ways, including turning the inside median shoulders from the Whitney Way exit to Interstate 39/90 into additional travel lanes during peak traffic times, which is known as part-time shoulder use or "flex lane." The project is scheduled to be complete in December.
