Northview Rd Utility and Street Reconstruction Phase II

Project Update June 21, 2019

This week the contractor completed the pouring of the south side through lane and shoulder throughout the project limits, and after cure time was achieved, began final preparation for the pouring of the north side through lane and shoulder pavement. The contractor is currently planning to work on Saturday 6/22, and they will be prepping and pouring side road intersection pavement along the project.

Next week, the contractor is planning to pour the north side through lane and shoulder pavement on Tuesday, and potentially could spill over to Wednesday as well. Due to the length of the pouring, and in an attempt to accelerating the paving and project, the contractor will begin work operations at 6am on Tuesday. They will also be sawcutting the new concrete pavement potentially into the late-night hours on Tuesday. We apologize in advance for inconvenience of both items. After completion of the north side through lane and shoulder pouring, late in the week the contractor plans to pour the remaining turn lane pavement in the middle of the roadway.

Due to the major paving work on Northview Rd., and concrete curing around the project, the work within Meadowview Park has been on hold. The contractor has completed all of the final grading, topsoil placement, and path aggregate placement on the entire west side of the park. The final grading and base course placement for the parking lot within the Park has also been completed. After the paving work wraps up along Northview Rd., the contractor will ramp up their work within the Park again, focusing on the east side of the park.

The entire project limits will be fully closed until the concrete paving has finished. For everyone’s safety, do not move any traffic control devices, or enter the work zone.

All of the dates and times are subject to change and are weather dependent. I will update the group if any work activities described above change. Thank you for your cooperation during this reconstruction project, and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Phase 2 Overview

Phase 2 Detour

Phase 2 Public Information Handout

As many of you are aware, the City of Waukesha will be reconstructing Northview Rd. from Meadowbrook Rd. (STH 318) to Tallgrass Cir. in the spring/early summer of 2019. This will be the second phase of work along Northview Rd. and a continuation of the Phase 1 project that reconstructed Northview Rd. from Tallgrass Cir. to N. Grandview Blvd. in 2018. This proposed improvements of the Phase 2 project include the complete reconstruction of the roadway, installation of storm sewer improvements, minor sanitary sewer and water main/hydrant adjustment work, installation of new permanent signing and pavement markings, sidewalk will be constructed in portions of the project corridor; and grading for the future placement of sidewalk will be performed elsewhere. This project also includes the Phase 1 improvements of the Meadowview Park site at the corner of Meadowbrook Rd. and Northview Rd.

During the project work, Northview Rd. will be closed to through traffic from Meadowbrook Rd. to Tallgrass Cir., and a proposed detour route (Meadowbrook Rd. -> Silvernail Rd. -> N. Grandview Blvd.) will also be posted. The contractor for this project, has tentatively scheduled a starting date of Wednesday March 27th for the project, and as a result, beginning on 3/27, Northview Rd. from Meadowbrook Rd. to Tallgrass Cir. will be closed to through traffic.
