Another Beltline ramp closing for 3 weeks as part of ongoing improvement project

Beltline ramp closures

Some ramps on the Beltline are already closed due to the project, and another is set to be closed starting Monday.

Another ramp along the Beltline will be closed for three weeks starting Monday as part of an ongoing project to improve the highway, which includes introducing part-time shoulder use during peak traffic times.

The westbound Beltline ramp to Todd Drive will be closed as of 6:30 p.m. Monday until April 26, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said. Drivers should plan on using alternate routes.

The Todd Drive ramp to the eastbound Beltline, including the eastbound auxiliary lane between Todd Drive and Fish Hatchery Road, and the eastbound Beltline ramp to southbound Fish Hatchery Road are currently closed until April 19.

Ramp closures and work operations are dependent on weather and subject to change.

The improvement project is scheduled to be completed in December. The project includes 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.”


Shining stars: Meet the Madison area's Top Workplaces

Make no mistake about it: The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have left painful scars. But this year’s Top Workplaces project shows that many employees across the Madison region remain resiliently upbeat and are clinging to their workplace cultures, even from a distance.

WPPI Energy president and CEO Mike Peters says communication is vital to the success of the Sun Prairie-based, member-owned operation that serves 51 local electric utilities with wholesale electric power supply, utility technologies and services.

The Top Workplaces winners among midsize companies reflect innovative styles to building corporate cultures that their employees embrace. Here’s a look at the other winners in the mid-size category:

In the past chaos-packed year, revenues dipped for the downtown advertising, design and digital agency — a result of the economic mess created by the pandemic — and the agency had its first layoffs in 20 years, while its staff was scattered to complete work remotely.

Although winners in the small-company category reflect a variety of missions, they share a common characteristic: They have built strong workplaces that provide stand-out benefits and flexibility. Here are the other winners in the small-company category:

Among this year’s Top Workplaces, employees singled out several companies for their extraordinary efforts in important phases of workplace life, ranging from leadership to transparency.

Businesses that suddenly found themselves in the midst of a pandemic that shattered conventional ways of working quickly discovered that a strong workplace culture was vital to surviving and thriving during the crisis.

To become a Top Workplace, organizations instill in their team members a variety of values and approaches that keep their businesses thriving in the marketplace, their employees engaged and their communities strong.
