As the saying goes "it's the journey not the destination.” But, if you've be out driving around Madison lately, you know the journey isn't always the most pleasing part.
So NBC 15 put several routes to the test to find out which really is the fastest way to get around.
We left at around 5pm from the West Towne Mall to head to the East Towne Mall.
Three NBC 15 employees took three different routes to get there:
The routes are listed below:
Route 1 = Beltline
Route 2= City Streets (Mineral Point to Regent to North Shore Dr to John Nolen to E Wash)
Route 3 = Around North side of Lake Mendota ( HWY 12 to CTH M to Northport to Anderson to Hwy 51 to E. Wash)
Click the video to find out which route was fastest.
**note: no one was speeding**
**Of course red lights and slow drivers could sway the results**
