Zierdt Road Improvements

Posted on April 24, 2017


This is a four-phase, multi-jurisdictional project along Zierdt Road from Madison Boulevard to Martin Road. The road is being widened to 4-lanes with a 12-foot wide multi-use path on the west side of the roadway. The project is 3.5 miles long and will be bid and constructed in phases as right-of-way is acquired and funding is made available.

The final phase of improvements on Zierdt Road will consist of 3.5 miles of 2- Southbound lanes, 12-foot multi-use path on the west side, 7-lanes at the intersection of Martin/ Zierdt and 6-lanes at the intersection of Madison/Zierdt. The intersection work will take the longest since both will be constructed while under traffic conditions.


The project is in Phase IV of four phases (southbound lanes & intersections). The northbound lanes are complete.

The contractor has shifted traffic to the new northbound lanes between Madison Boulevard and Edgewater Drive. The contractor is working at both the Martin Road intersection and the Madison Boulevard intersection and along the southbound lanes to Edgewater Drive.

Phase IV construction began in October 2018. Estimated completion in fall 2021.
