A public information meeting to discuss street projects slated for this summer in Port Washington will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4.
Input received during the meeting, which will be held in City Hall, will be used to help design the improvements, Public Works Director Rob Vanden Noven said.
“We’re very early in the design process right now, so this is the time for people to give us their input,” he said.
Representatives of Gremmer & Associates, the city’s design consultant, will be at the meeting to talk to residents, Vanden Noven said.
The streets include:
• Holden Street from Orchard Lane to Van Buren Street to Jackson Street.
• Jackson Street from Holden to Webster street.
• Van Buren Street from Holden to Wisconsin street.
• Milwaukee Street between Jackson and Walters streets.
• Prospect Street from Wisconsin Street to the cul-de-sac.
• Prospect Court from Prospect Street until the end.
• Benjamin Street between Theis Street and Norport Drive.
The projects, which are expected to cost just more than $2 million, involve street reconstruction work and water main replacement on most roads, he said.
Where there is no sidewalk along the road, walkways will be built, Vanden Noven said, and damaged sidewalks will be replaced.
Some storm sewer improvements will also be incorporated into the projects to help with drainage, he added.
Construction is expected to begin in May and be completed by October, Vanden Noven said, adding that work will be staggered.
“We don’t want to have any one area under construction for the full four months,” he said.
The roads around Port Washington High School will be constructed during the summer months so school won’t be impacted, he said.
Anyone who cannot attend the meeting but who would like information on the projects is asked to call Vanden Noven at 284-2600 or e-mail him at
