Take Lake Mendota drive through Shorewood and Eagle Heights to U Bay drive.
Left on Observatory
Right on Elm
Left on Linden
Right on Charter through Johnson to Dayton
Left on Dayton to downtown
Right on Whitney Way
Left on Regent
Regent to Blackhawk
Right on Bluff which becomes Kendall to Lathrop. (parallel to Old Univ and be careful. There are speed bumps and go slowly. It is a residential narrow street with parking on one side and a designated bike route.)
Or Right on Franklin to Regent by the cemetery.
Both are round about ways but at least you keep moving.
Ya know, I'm so glad all I need to get to and from work is hop on the bus located near me and let Madcity Metro do the driving. Bring a book and/or an iPod or **gasp** strike up a conversation with someone on the bus. Some routes are crowded but it's much better than dealing with construction and parking issues.
