[ARCHIVED] Fish Hatchery Road Construction to Begin in Fitchburg on April 1st

FITCHBURG, WI – The reconstruction of Fish Hatchery Road is underway in the City of Fitchburg.  The two year project will focus on the area between Traceway Drive to the Madison Beltline in 2020.

Beginning April 1, construction will begin with work in the median to install cross overs, temporary driveway connections, and temporary traffic signals.  Utility relocations are also ongoing along Fish Hatchery Road.

2020 Construction on Fish Hatchery Road will be divided into four stages:

  • Median work and temporary crossovers (Stage A)
  • Reconstruction of the northbound lanes of Fish Hatchery Road with traffic shifted to the west with one lane of travel in both directions (Stage B)
  • Once completed, traffic will shift onto the new pavement with one lane of travel in each direction during the southbound reconstruction (Stage C)
  • Crews will be completing the median, restoration, and streetscaping with traffic switched back to their permanent configuration and occupying two lanes of traffic in each direction (Stage D)

During this work, one lane of traffic in each direction will remain open along Fish Hatchery Road at all times.

Stage B will include several traffic pattern changes on Greenway Cross, which will include temporary one way streets and detours will be required to construct the improvements through the intersections. Temporary closures at Post Road will occur, but will be coordinated with the Greenway Cross construction to allow access to Fish Hatchery Road.   

Fish Hatchery Road north of Traceway Drive will be completed and fully open to traffic in the fall of 2020.
