I-39/90 NORTHBOUND NOW OPEN TO THREE LANES IN DANE COUNTY
Major milestone as Interstate work is substantially complete between Madison and Edgerton
EDGERTON, WI – Three lanes are now open on I-39/90 northbound between the Rock River bridges near Edgerton and County AB just south of Madison.
The speed limit within this section of Interstate is posted at 70 mph; however, motorists are advised to drive for conditions. The southbound Interstate in Dane County opened to three lanes last week.
Periodic nighttime lane closures will occur on I-39/90 in spring 2020 to complete permanent pavement markings and other restoration activities.
I-39/90 reconstruction and expansion continues from south of Edgerton to the Illinois state line until winter shutdown. The reduced speed limit of 60 mph is still in effect within these limits. Interstate work in the Janesville and Beloit areas is scheduled to be completed in fall 2021.
The I-39/90 Project improvements address safety, ease congestion and modernize this important transportation corridor. Information on the Interstate project can be found at www.i39-90.wi.gov, including the option to register for project email updates.
