Summit Ave. Utility & Street Improvements
Project Update: June 7, 2019
The contractor this week placed the message board signs along Summit Avenue to notify the traveling public of the upcoming roadway closure and start of the project activities along Summit Avenue. Next week, the contractor will begin the traffic control full closure setup, and detour route posting on Tuesday June 11th. They also intend to mobilize equipment to the project site on Tuesday as well. They are anticipating beginning the breaking of the existing concrete pavement on Wednesday and will begin removing the concrete pavement in the areas of the storm sewer and new water main trenches. Erosion control setup and saw cutting will also occur next week. The contractor is anticipating beginning rock excavation blasting for the new storm sewer along Summit Avenue the week of the 17th.
Starting on June 11th, Summit Avenue will be closed to through traffic from N. University Dr. to N. Grandview Blvd., and will be available for local traffic only. Just a reminder that the posted detour route will be University Dr. -> Northview Rd. -> N. Grandview Blvd. (and vice versa). All of the dates and time are subject to change and are weather dependent, and I will update the group if anything changes from the above information.
The City of Waukesha will be reconstructing Summit Avenue and replacing/upgrading underground utilities from Greenmeadow Dr. to N. Grandview Blvd. Also, as part of this project, the asphalt pavement along Summit Avenue will be resurfaced from N. University Dr. to Greenmeadow Dr. The scope of work for this project along Summit Avenue will include water main upsizing, large diameter storm sewer installation, and pavement reconstruction and resurfacing. The sanitary sewer throughout the project limits will also be rehabilitated via lining, and most sanitary sewer laterals will be replaced.
The project was awarded at the April 4th Common Council meeting to Advance Construction, Inc. The contractor is planning to begin initial construction activities as early as Monday April 29th (weather dependent), and the completion date for the project is September 27, 2019. Summit Avenue will remain open to traffic with one lane in each direction during the initial stage of construction until early July. After the first week in July, Summit Avenue will be closed to through traffic, and available to local traffic only.
