Committee commissions $18,000 study that will examine options for accident-riddled Highway V-W crossing

    Less than three months after another in a series of crashes at the intersection of highways V and W injured five people, an Ozaukee County committee took the first decisive step toward addressing the problems that plague this crossing on the well-traveled thoroughfare between Port Washington and Grafton.

    The Public Works Committee last week approved a $17,965 contract with Gremmer & Associates Inc., a Fond du Lac-based consulting engineering firm, to pinpoint the problems at this Town of Grafton intersection and study redesign options that include designated turn lanes, traffic signals, a four-way stop and a roundabout.

    “Clearly we have to do something at this intersection,” Public Works Director Bob Dreblow said. “There have been too many accidents there.”     

    The committee’s action comes in response to a resolution passed Dec. 11 by the Grafton Town Board calling for the county to fix design problems at the accident-riddled intersection.
