Initially, as sent out to impacted residents and property owners, and also mentioned at the public information meeting, the project was anticipated to begin late April/early May. With the recent string of weather, and the amount of time that construction activities would occur adjacent to live traffic lanes, the contractor has currently pushed back the anticipated project start to early/mid-June. This is still subject to change but is the current status of the project.
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.
