A lot of folks believe that Rosa Rd (S Rosa Rd and N Rosa Rd) on Madison’s Near West side is a busy, busy through-street like Whitney Way, Midvale Blve or even Segoe Rd. Actually, of the seven major through-streets on Madison’s Near West side, Rosa Rd is the least busy. Of course during the morning (6:00 to 9:00 AM) and evening (4:00 to 7:00 PM) commuting times, Rosa Rd does see a bump in traffic, but nothing like the other six streets.
S Rosa Rd Least Busy of Seven Major Through-Streets
Taking a look at the cars per minute as measured by a 2011 DOT traffic study, we can see that of the four major North-South through-streets (Rosa Rd, Whitney Way, Segoe Rd and Midvale Blvd) Rosa Rd is by far the least busy, and of the three major East-West through-streets (Mineral Point, Regent St and Old Middleton Rd) only Regent St, another residential street, is close to Rosa Rd, yet Rosa Rd is still the winner with the least amount of traffic.
What you do get with Rosa Road is incredible convenience to everything! You are just minutes away from West Towne Mall, the Capitol, the University, UW Health Hospital and Clinics, entertainment, great places to eat and so, so much more! So the next time someone suggests that Rosa Rd is a really busy street…you can say “Not True, Not True!” Actually Rosa Rd is a tree-lined residential street and the least busy of all the major through-streets on the Near West Side and one of the most convenient places to live in all of West Madison.
Right now, we have a great home listed on S Rosa Rd, right across the street from Stephens Elementary.
You won’t want to miss this great opportunity to live in one of the most convenient neighborhoods Madison has to offer.
