Rustic Road 20

Road Temporarily Closed: Due to the rehabilitation of the historic Dyreson Bridge, R-20 is closed to the traveling public. Rich in heritage, Dyreson Road travels through fertile farmland and wooded areas. The road offers an excellent view of Lake Kegonsa as it crosses County B. Historic Dyreson Bridge over the Yahara River is the site of early Indian and pioneer crossings and is adjacent to ancient Indian effigy mound sites. Nearby wetlands provide glimpses of native waterfowl, fish and wildlife. Also located on the road is Dyreson House, an early Wisconsin homestead listed in the Wisconsin State Historical Society's Inventory of Historic Places.


Dane County. From Madison travel south on State Highway 51 approximately 6 miles to Dyreson Road, from Schneider Road north to County AB.
