Last month, crews from PTS Contractors of Green Bay began work on this year’s street improvement projects and will continue work through August.

According to the Director of Public Works Amber Thomas, workers are currently pouring new concrete curbs and installing new gutters on Fourth Avenue between Washington and Spring streets.  

They will resurface the roadway with asphalt in the next few weeks, and the street will be narrowed by three feet on both sides.

Utility work is almost finished on West Althea Drive from Audubon to First avenues, which will be followed by installation of the road base and pavement reconstruction , as well as curb and gutter replacement. 

Water main replacement and storm sewer improvements continued this week on West Walters Drive between Bobolink and First avenues.

Work has begun on a new water main relay system for West Juniper Drive between Audubon to First avenues. Improvements to the storm sewer are also occurring.

From Aspen and Audubon courts to West Maple Street, a new water main will be installed and roadway reconstruction will be complete.

Sidewalk removal, replacement and sawing will occur east of Wisconsin Avenue between Falls and Bridge streets. Forward Contractors of Grafton will handle the removal and replacement while Surefoot Sidewalks from Illinois will complete the sawing portion.

Plans are currently being designed to improve the traffic signals at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Cedar Street. 

The village wants to make improvements  to accommodate the growing amount of traffic from the Lumberyard development and to increase safety for pedestrians crossing Wisconsin Avenue.

Thomas said the construction will occur in the late summer into fall.
