The objective of the Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) corridor study is to identify and evaluate a range of potential long-term solutions that will address local and regional safety, accessibility, and mobility issues along the Beltline. The PEL will evaluate the Beltline between US 14 (Middleton) to County N (Cottage Grove). The Beltline PEL is a long-range planning study. WisDOT does not anticipate any construction projects associated with the PEL study for the next 10 to 15 years.

The PEL study is currently scheduled for completion in 2023. Potential strategies developed in the PEL will be further examined under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.
