BELOIT—One of the most extensive high way construction projects in the Stateline Area came to a close at the end of 2021, much to the excitement and joy of residents and business owners who had to deal with orange barrels and traffic delays during the past few years.

The Interstate 39/90—Interstate 43 project finally was finished in November after years of planning and construction. The project stretched about 45 miles from the Illinois/Wisconsin state line to Madison and it involved expanding the interstate from two lanes in each direction to three lanes in each direction. Lanes were expanded to four lanes in each direction in the Janesville area.
