Construction affects Observatory Drive, University ramp

Utility work trenching across Observatory Drive will cause detours over the next few weeks. Starting Monday, May 15, Observatory Drive between Elm Drive and Easterday Lane will be one-way westbound only. Eastbound traffic will be detoured at Easterday onto Linden Drive until approximately May 29. Then, starting Tuesday, May 30, Observatory Drive will be closed to both directions of traffic for about a week. All traffic between Elm and Easterday will be detoured to Linden Drive. In addition, A City of Madison utility project will close the exit ramp from eastbound University Avenue onto “Old” University Avenue from Monday, May 15 through Friday, May 26. For commuters who take University Avenue to Highland Avenue or Walnut Street, the best alternative during this construction would be to turn left at University Bay Drive and proceed to Highland Avenue.
