Traffic from I-39/90 will be impacted until October due to WiDOT construction project. The ramps to east bound US Hwy 12 & 18 will be closed and traffic will be directed to use the Beltline’s Stoughton Road Exit (Exit No 142A) where drivers can then get back onto east bound US Hwy 12 & 18. Please refer to this news story for additional details: https://www.nbc15.com/2023/09/05/exit-ramps-i-3990-us-1218-close-more-than-month/
Additionally, due to the CTY HWY AB Interchange project, access to Dane County Landfill and Clean Sweep will soon be changing permanently. Effective September 22, 2023, there will no longer be direct access from US Hwy 12 & 18 and all traffic will use Exit 269 off US Hwy 12 & 18 to access the site from our newly constructed frontage road, Maahic Way/Landfill Dr. Due to this new frontage road, we will have updated addresses effective September 11th, 2023:
Clean Sweep will also now have a dedicated/separate entrance approximately 2,500 feet west of the current landfill entrance to alleviate traffic congestion on the current landfill driveway and improve safety for our staff, customers and visitors.
