Driver complaints force changes in Beltline construction

Driver complaints force changes in Beltline construction

The Department of Transportation will make changes to Beltline construction after drivers complained that on-ramps were unsafe.

The DOT has been doing resurfacing work and building sound barriers along the Beltline for the last few months, but after a number of crashes and complaints from drivers, they're working with a contractor to change the ramp design.

Ramps at Old Sauk and Mineral Point Roads have been using yield signs causing slower merging in places with poor visibility, and the merge lanes have been drastically shortened.

Marty Caban drives the Beltline day and night for his two jobs, and he said drivers don't know how to respond at the on-ramps.

A months-long construction project on Branch Street began in early June and is expected to be completed in early October. Crews are replacing the water main, repairing sewers, sidewalks and gutters and resurfacing the road.

A portion of Branch Street is expected to be closed for about a month for maintenance, according to a notice from the city.
