Currently, there are roads / subdivisions in the City that are under construction or soon will be. As a result of neighborhood and road construction, many motorists have found alternate routes around town.
Many of the traffic-related issues involve motorists using residential streets as alternate routes around construction. Although these routes are perfectly legal, the Madison Police Department would like to remind all motorists that the speed limit on all residential streets is 25 mph unless posted otherwise. The Madison Traffic Division has received and responded to complaints of motorists exceeding the 25 mph speed limit on residential streets and have been utilizing appropriate equipment and personnel to address these issues.
Please drive through neighborhoods as cautiously as you would in your own.
