State Street 700-800 Blocks Reconstruction Project
The City of Madison, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is developing design plans for the reconstruction of the 700 & 800 Blocks of State Street and Library Mall. The focus of the design is to create a special place at the intersection of two recently constructed iconic Madison corridors, State Street and East Campus Mall. The City of Madison Common Council approved the plans for the 700-800 blocks of State Street as recommended by the State Street Oversight Committee (and the Board of Public Works). Construction is scheduled to begin in the middle of May and be substantially completed by the start of UW classes in the fall. For more info on the project, click here.
