Residents took a first look at a new transit study aimed at solving traffic issues on Madison’s west side Monday night at Covenant Presbyterian Church on Segoe Road.
The study focuses on the University Avenue corridor from Segoe Road to Breese Terrace.
Some local groups are asking the city for more safety improvements like the new crosswalk at University Avenue and Shorewood Boulevard.
The project manager said it’s all about finding middle ground.
“We got a lot of feedback about pedestrian and bicycle issues, as well as transit,” said Jeff Held, project manager. “We’re definitely hearing a need to balance the different modes and find solutions for all the users.”
Residents also asked about bus lanes and the recent flooding.
The study is in the second of three phases. Public meetings about the final plans are expected to happen late this fall.
