151 Main Street Project Update Week of October 31st, 2011 (City of Sun Prairie Engineering Department)

Here is the schedule for the week of Oct. 31st on the 151-Main Street Interchange project: 
  • Traffic switch to occur on Monday, traffic to travel on outside lanes along Main Street (Originally scheduled for Oct. 26th)
  • Concrete placed in TWLTL (two way left turn lane).
  • Median work will continue. 
  • Landscaping and restoration will continue.
  • Next Thursday Nov. 3rd at 9:00 a.m. will be the last business meeting held for this project.
Truck Traffic Advisory: 

It is currently very difficult for large trucks to make a left turn onto Main Street from the SB 151 ramp. These trucks may want to either 1) turn right and go around the Round-a-bout to go east bound on Main Street, or 2) they could go up to the 151-CTH C - Reiner Rd interchange and turn around to head NB on 151and exit on to Main Street. This right turn is much easier for large trucks.

Note that there are no turns onto Main Street from O'Keeffe Ave.

Persons travelling this route are advised that construction is likely to be occurring on Saturdays for the next several weeks.  People are also strongly encouraged to continue to slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment at all times in the construction zone.  In addition, vehicles traveling westbound on W. Main Street. and wanting to access businesses along O'Keeffe Avenue must turn at the Clarmar Drive intersection.  Access to O'Keeffe Avenue for westbound vehicles does not exist west of Clarmar Drive.
