IH-94 over Lien Road

Transportation Design: Expressway/Freeway

IH-94 over Lien Road, Dane County

KL Engineering completed the final design and PS&E for this project that replaced the existing 3-span concrete slab structures that carry IH-94/39 over Lien Road in the City of Madison. The project also included:

  • extending a fourth lane across the structures in each direction which eliminated the existing choke point created by the narrow structures
  • extending the merging lane for the westbound IH-94 to westbound IH-39/90/94 movement at the Badger Interchange
  • constructing a concrete median barrier wall
  • reconstructing approximately 1500 feet of Lien Road from a two lane roadway to a 4 lane divided roadway

The project required development of a detailed traffic control plan to maintain three lanes of traffic in each direction while constructing the additional lanes and reconstructing the bridges over Lien Road. The project was also on an accelerated schedule and required close coordination with the City of Madison and WisDOT Bridge Office for structure design.

This $8.0 million project was constructed in 2010.

WisDOT awarded KL Engineering a rating of 4.8 out of 5 on its Design Consultant Performance Evaluation Report upon completion of the PS&E
