Summit Ave. Utility & Street Improvements
Project Update: Aug 9, 2019
The week the contractor completed bedrock blasting operations along the project, and continued the sanitary sewer lateral replacements between Western Ave. and N. Grandview Blvd. Next week the lateral replacements will continue in this section until all properties are completed. Once the lateral work wraps up, the contractor will shift back to the mainline storm sewer and water main installations. This work should continue through the end of next week.
Summit Avenue is closed to through traffic from N. University Dr. to N. Grandview Blvd. and is for local traffic only. Through traffic should not enter the work zone and shall utilize an alternate route. All the dates and times above are subject to change and are weather dependent. I will update the group if anything changes from the above information. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please feel free to contact me.
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.
