Important Traffic Note:
There will be an event at the University Ridge Golf Course on the day of the picnic expecting a lot of people. In order to avoid the high traffic corner of PD and M, please consider taking this alternate route: Take Mineral Point West to Timber Lane, turn left on Timber Lane and then a left on PD. The Goodman Jewish Community Campus will be the first driveway you can turn into immediately on the left.

If you can’t avoid taking Junction Road/M out to the Goodman Campus, you can try avoiding some of the traffic by turning right onto Midtown and then left onto Woods Road. Take a right when you get to PD and then the campus will be approximately 1 mile on your right.
