MADISON, Wis. -Motorists might experience traffic delays on the Beltline on Friday because of increased traffic going to the Midwest Horse Fair, officials said.
The annual fair starts Friday morning at the Alliant Energy Center with hundreds of spectators and exhibitors arriving during the morning commute, according to a release. Authorities expect east and westbound lanes of the Beltline to be congested Friday morning.
Horse fair participants can use the Olin Avenue, Rusk Avenue or Rimrock Road gates to enter the Alliant Energy Center, officials said. For participants to get on to Alliant Energy grounds efficiently, one lane of outbound John Nolen Drive will be closed, as well as one south lane of Rimrock Road.
Law enforcement will be directing traffic at the main gate, Rimrock Road and Rusk Avenue intersection, and the John Nolen Drive and Rimrock Road intersection, according to the release. Signs will be up along the Beltline to direct motorists.
Officials ask motorists to avoid Highway 12/18 near the Park Street, Rimrock Road and John Nolen Drive exits on Friday.
