Verona Road Project named Top Road Project

Roads and Bridges Magazine has selected the Verona Road Project as the Top Road Project in North America for 2017! The project appears on the cover of the October 2017 issue with a feature story.

“This is such a sensitive area,” John Vesperman, Southwest Region megaproject chief for the (WisDOT), told Roads & Bridges. “This project was squeezed into an urban area between an environmental justice neighborhood, so connectivity between both sides of the project was so important. For folks to see that was crucial. There’s a lot of walking and biking that goes on throughout the whole city of Madison. Throw in the economically disadvantaged area in the project zone, with folks who don’t have access to other forms of transportation, and planning for multimodal was a key concern.”
