Springfield Corners

After running with Highway 78 for a brief spell, Highway 19 heads east on its own and winds through a beautiful rural setting which, considering Dane County’s growth, may change over the next decade or so. Farms and hills – and a fairly narrow, twisty road at times – define this part of Highway 19. Eventually near Springfield Corners, you join U.S. Highway 12 and its new four-lane expressway for a little over a mile before heading east again. From here, Highway 19 sort of serves as an unofficial “northern bypass” of Madison.
