No Thru Traffic

As Main Street and Century Avenue get closer and closer to being finished, the DOT would like to remind citizens and visitors that there is still a NO THRU TRAFFIC restriction in place. This means that unless you are patronizing a Waunakee business or home in the reconstruction area, drivers are NOT ALLOWED to completely pass through construction zones from one end to another. The Waunakee Police Department has the authority to ticket drivers who violate this no thru traffic restriction. The Village of Waunakee and DOT would also like to remind citizens and visitors that even though some roads look “finished,” they in fact are still a work in progress. Keep in mind that as the number of cars driving in the roundabout and downtown area increases, the ability of workers to complete their job in a timely and safe manner decreases.  Please consider this when deciding which route to take to get to your destination.

We are glad to see that people are excited about driving on the new roads and observing the work in progress, but please keep in mind that we still have a few weeks left of construction. Please continue to use the posted local and regional detour routes for the remainder of this project. Construction is to be completed and roads reopened in mid-September. Waunakee directional signage from the interstate and surrounding highways will be restored upon project completion.
