I drive this highway once a week enroute to Madison and find in the early morning hours lots of semis are pulling out of this entrance to the freeway and it is kind of scary because visibility wise and acceleration wise it just seems to make being at that intersection scary going at the speed posted. I really dont think people can tell how fast the traffic is really going when they pull out of there either. I didn't witness the accident that day, but i was one of the many trucks that had to go around on the detour and what I saw when I came out on BB was a horrible sight to see, but I knew that is what had happened when i came to the cops directing traffic a different way. That is a horrible intersection and the fog only made it worse. I really feel if the state of Wisconsin has the funds and feasibility they should put up an overpass to avoid this kind of tragedy from ever happening again. My heart goes out to the families of the woman who was killed and all who were involved. It's a terrible thing to have happened that could have been prevented!
