Next week will bring a significant change to the traffic pattern around the chemistry complex. A portion of Mills St will be completely closed until summer 2020. The construction team needs to place a large crane in Mills Street, between University Ave and Conklin Ct. The crane is needed for the construction of the tower structure and for hoisting the large air supply and exhaust systems that will be located in the mechanical penthouse of the tower.
The schedule is as follows:
Mills St closed from University Ave to Conklin Ct. (contractors staging equipment for crane assembly)
Mills St closed from University Ave to Johnson St. (contractors assembling crane)
Jun 30, 2020 Mills St closed from University Ave to Conklin Ct. Two-way traffic on Mills St between Conklin Ct and Johnson St.
The University and Madison Metro will announce changes to the bus routes that are affected by this closure.
