Information about six street projects planned for next year will be shared during a public information meeting at Port Washington City Hall next week.

The meeting, which will be held at City Hall, will run from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4.

The projects include street and water main work on Roger Street from Melin Street north, Summit Drive from Portview Drive to Lincoln Avenue, Garfield Avenue between Second and Fourth avenues and Third Avenue from the alley to Garfield Avenue.

They also include water main work on Western Avenue/Ravine Street from Division Street to Oakland Avenue.

Improvements to Crocker Avenue from Grand Avenue to Melin Street will also be designed as part of the project list. However, construction of those improvements won’t take place until after the city’s stormwater study is completed, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven said.

That study is intended to help the city develop a plan to minimize flooding on the west side. 

“(Until that study’s done) we don’t know for sure what we’ll be doing with Crocker,” Vanden Noven said.

The meeting will follow an open house format with no formal presentation. 

Information on the design proposals, how they will affect street and parkway widths and storm sewer improvements will be discussed, and property owners may discuss their concerns with representatives of the city and its design consultant, Gremmer & Associates.

No right of way acquisition is expected, nor will there be any special assessments, according to the city.

Homeowners who want to replace their storm sewer lateral or construct a new storm sewer connection in connection with the project may arrange to do so at their own cost. 

The work is estimated to cost about $2 million, Vanden Noven said.

Anyone who cannot attend but would like information about the projects may contact Vanden Noven at 284-2600 or email
