Swan Blvd Re-Paving and Roundabout Construction

Post Date:06/17/2019 1:26 PM

Starting Wednesday, June 19 through Fall 2019, the Department of Transportation will be repaving Swan Blvd from I-41 to the bridge over MMSD's detention basins.

In addition to repaving, they are constructing a roundabout at the intersection of Swan Blvd and Discovery Parkway and adding multiuse trails on either side of Swan Blvd. These improvements are part of traffic calming and pedestrian safety measures. A new segment of roadway will be constructed from the roundabout north to the Forest Exploration Center that will be developed at a future date.

To safely construct the new roundabout, Swan Boulevard and Discovery Parkway will be closed to traffic within the work zone. The detour will be Swan Blvd to North Avenue to Mayfair Rd to Watertown Plank Rd.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is the lead agency on design and construction.
