Northview Rd Utility and Street Reconstruction
As approved in the 2018 CIP budget, the City of Waukesha will be reconstructing Northview Rd. from 150’ west of Tallgrass Circle to 800’ west of Pebble Valley Road. Also included with the roadway reconstruction, will be a new storm sewer system throughout the roadway reconstruction limits, and connection west to Pebble Creek. The existing culvert underneath Northview Rd. at Pebble Creek will also be replaced, by 2 culverts as a flood mitigation effort included in the 2014 City Wide Flood Mitigation Plan.
Northview Road is proposed to be reconstructed as a two-lane roadway with left-turn lane improvements provided at intersecting side streets. The roadway reconstruction includes the complete removal and replacement of the existing pavement, curb and gutter, and drive approaches. A majority of Northview Rd. within the full reconstruction limits will be changed to an urban typical roadway section, containing concrete curb and gutter, and eliminating the existing roadside ditches. Handicap ramps at the side road intersections will be updated to current ADA standards. A new traffic signal will also be installed at the Northview Rd. and University Ave. intersection to improve safety. As part of this project, sidewalk will either be added, or graded for adding in the future on both sides of Northview Rd. New permanent pavement markings and roadside signing will also be included.
In order to accommodate the roadway reconstruction, and corresponding grading operations adjacent to the roadway, existing trees within the roadway right-of-way may need to be removed.
In addition to the full roadway reconstruction limits, Northview Rd. from 800’ west of Pebble Valley Rd. to N. Grandview Blvd. will be resurfaced with new asphalt pavement. This resurfacing work will also be in conjunction with the Waukesha Water Utility’s replacement of the water main within these limits. The currently curb ramps at the side road intersections along this stretch will also be upgraded to current ADA standards.
During the reconstruction project, Northview Road will be closed to through traffic from Patrick Lane to N. Grandview Boulevard. Every effort will be made to maintain access to properties adjacent to the work zone throughout the project until paving operations being. The paving of the roadway will be staged to allow for as much access to adjacent properties as possible, and also, to reduce the timeframe that access is restricted.
Project construction activities are expected to begin in early to mid-April, and the current anticipated completion date for the project is September 21, 2018. Private utility relocations along this segment of Northview Road will also begin prior to the start of construction, however, the roadway will remain open to through traffic during the utility work.
