Starting in April a major construction project will begin on Williamson Street which will impact businesses, motorists, and local residents. As such there are many concerns in this most eclectic of Madison neighborhoods.
To get in front of what promises to be lots of snarled traffic and disgruntled customers one Willy Street business is planning to take action this month which will hopefully take the sting out of next year's street project. But by doing so they also will be irritating some local residents.
The Willy Street Co-op is planning to place a driveway on the Jennifer Street side of their parking lot as a means of egress for shoppers. Neighbors were alerted to this news in a mailing this past week which stated the proposed driveway is to be completed this month.
