The Fish Hatchery Road ramp to the eastbound Highway 12/18 in Madison will be closed for one week starting 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 27.
The ramp will reopen again on Wednesday, August 4 and motorists are asked to use alternate routes during the closure, Wisconsin Department of Transportation Communications Manager Steven Theisen said in a statement.
Construction crews will reconstruct a portion of the ramp as part of the department's Flex Lane project. The ramp closure and work operations are weather dependent and subject to change, Theisen said.
Organics including food waste and scraps account for about 30% of Wisconsin’s landfill waste by weight, according to a study of waste from 14 disposal sites that was commissioned by the state Department of Natural Resources.
