University Ridge Golf Course

University Ridge Golf Course is one area affected by the massive expansion and reconstruction project along Highway M between Madison and Verona.

If the old adage is "There's only two seasons in Wisconsin, winter and road construction," winter must be over.

Road work is in full bore across the Madison area, from Highway M on the Far West Side to Buckeye Road on the East Side, with a variety of projects in between.

Three projects in particular are rolling along this week, on North Sherman Avenue, South Park Street and Highway M.

  • The village of Maple Bluff will close North Sherman Avenue on Thursday and early Friday, between Commercial Avenue and Roxbury Road, for underground utility work. The closures will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, and again from 7 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday. The street will be open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • The northbound side of South Park Street is reduced to one lane of traffic between Olin Avenue and West Washington Avenue, so concrete joints can be repaired. During the week, two northbound lanes will be opened from 7 a.m to 9 a.m. for peak commute times heading into Downtown. Northbound Fish Hatchery Road will also be reduced to one lane at the South Park Street intersection. The work is expected to be finished by Aug. 10.
  • Highway M construction will require the closing of two intersections, Shale Drive and M on Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Waterbend Drive and M from 7 a.m. Thursday to 5 p.m. Friday. The closures are necessary so underground utilities can be installed.
