Flex Lane Opens Mid-July Along the Madison Beltline
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is preparing to open the Flex Lane along US 12/18 – commonly known as the Beltline – in Madison. Crews improved the inside median shoulders, between the Whitney Way exit and the I-39/90 interchange, for use as an additional travel lane during peak traffic periods. The Flex Lane on the Beltline is an innovative solution to ease backups during the busiest times and provide reliability for motorists who use it every day for work or business.
Coordination is underway among WisDOT, Dane County Sheriff’s Office and Dane County Highway Department to conduct maintenance and testing of the Flex Lane. This process is a critical last step before the Flex Lane is fully operational. The Flex Lane is currently scheduled to open in mid-July. When in operation, use of the Flex Lane will only be permitted when the signs show a green arrow.
