Vision Zero speed reductions to target Portage Road next

MADISON, Wis. — The next round of speed reductions will target a stretch of Portage Road on Madison’s east side, city officials announced Friday.

The reductions will affect Portage Road between East Washington Avenue and Churchill Heights Park starting Monday, Sept. 26. Speeds will be reduced from 30 mph to 25 mph.

In total, the impacted stretch spans 1.8 miles.

City officials said they plan to install digital signboards with updated permanent signs to remind drivers of the new speed limits.

In October, traffic crews will finalize speed reductions for Segoe Road between University Avenue and Odana Road. That reduction will be the last of 2022.
