Stage I construction on Verona Road (US 18/151), from the Beltline to Raymond Road, is scheduled to start on Monday, February 24. Initial construction work will install temporary traffic signals at the Beltline and Verona Road interchange.
Starting the week of March 10, all traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes of Verona Road between the Beltline and Raymond Road. Two lanes will remain open to traffic in each direction. Access to area businesses and neighborhoods will remain open during construction. The public should continue to patronize area businesses in the work zone.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is overseeing a multi-year reconstruction project that will improve Verona Road (US 18/151), a heavily-used highway in Fitchburg and Madison.
The project is divided into two stages:
- Beltline (US 12/18), from Whitney Way to Seminole Highway
- Verona Road, from Raymond Road to Nakoma Road
- Verona Road, from County PD (McKee Road) to Raymond Road
Some construction is scheduled to start in July 2013 and continue in 2014. More information can be found under “Construction projects” to the left. Additional work to reconstruct Verona Road and the Beltline is scheduled for fall 2014 through 2019.
