Badger fans asked to plan for traffic delays

Badger fans asked to plan for traffic delays

Numerous construction projects in and around Madison are prompting state transportation officials to ask fans to expect delays getting to Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.

Work on the Beltline will be on hold for five hours before and after the game, but lane shifts, ramp closures and reduced speeds are still likely to cause delays. Alternate routes are also likely to have extra game day traffic.

The game kicks off at 11 a.m.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation recommends motorists plan for additional time to get to their destination.

State highway projects in the greater Madison area include:

Madison Beltline

·         Lane shifts in both directions between Middleton and I-39/90

·         US 14 ramp to westbound Beltline is open

State’s report card shows Monona Grove meets expectations

State education officials say the majority of Wisconsin public schools and school districts meet or exceed expectations for student achievement.

The Monona Grove School District was rated as meeting expectations.

The state report cards for about 2,100 public schools show approximately 88 percent met or exceeded expectations. About 98 percent of the state's 424 districts also achieved that mark.

It's the second year the state Department of Public Instruction has issued district report cards and the third year for schools.

Both are evaluated in four main areas; student achievement in reading and math on statewide assessments, student growth in those assessments, closing achievement and graduation gaps and readiness for college or careers.
