Highway 26 Corridor Study
|Milton alternatives - Segment 1, South Segment
Three alternatives in the Milton area are under consideration. The South segment includes the four lane section completed between Janesville and Milton in 1999.
Alternative S1 is the alternative through the city of Milton on existing alignment. It provides for a four lane divided urban street through the city of Milton on existing alignment. This through-Milton alternative would provide a posted speed limit of 45 miles per hour. Access would be limited with several signalized intersections, meaning that the operating speed would be approximately 40 miles per hour. This alternative would probably require that buildings on one side of the street or the other be removed. The intent would be to preserve the Milton House building with widening and acquisition of right-of-way done to the west in that area.
Alternative S2 is the near east alternative and was modified to better serve Milton's industrial park and Highway 59, and to provide a better interchange location on the north side of the city. It provides for a four lane divided rural roadway just east of Milton, with an operating speed of at least 55 mph, with access at two locations. To accommodate traffic from the south and STH 59, this alternative has an interchange near the industrial park, which is in an area planned for future growth. To accommodate traffic on the north side, an interchange would be located on Bowers Lake Road extended to the west. Bndges would separate traffic at existing STH 59, the railroad, Storrs Lake Road and existing STH 26.
Alternative S3 is the alternative that was previously on the city's official map and was modified to provide a different interchange location on the south side of Milton. It provides for a four lane divided rural roadway further east than Alternative S2, with an operating speed of at least 55 mph, with access at two locations. This alternative is similar to the route that was previously on the city of Milton's official map. Access at the south side would be similar to Alternative S2. Access north of the city of Milton would probably be an interchange near Klug Road. Bndges separating traffic would be provided at existing STH 59, the railroad, Storrs Lake Road, Bowers Lake Road and Klug Road.
North of Milton, two more lanes are proposed, primarily on the west side. An interchange is proposed at CTH N. At-grade intersections are proposed at John Paul Road, County Line Road and Vickerman Road, while bndges separating traffic are proposed at Pond Road and Old 26. Old 26 would be extended to Business 26.
