There may still be snow on the ground but construction season is beginning in Port Washington.

Work on the city’s 2023 street project was expected to begin this week as Visu-Sewer started cleaning, televising and lining the sanitary sewer mains, a process expected to take about one week.

Streets being reconstructed this year include Nelson Drive from East James Drive to Whitefish Road, North Webster Street and North Benjamin Street  from Monroe Street to Whitefish Road and West Monroe Street from Wisconsin Street to Nelson Drive.

Beginning the week of March 20, PTS Contractors of Green Bay is expected to begin replacing water mains and services, a project that will take about 10 weeks.

Water is expected to be turned off to residents at least twice, with each taking less than eight hours.

Storm sewer work, grading, work to replace the base course, curb, driveway and sidewalk construction, asphalt paving and landscape restoration will complete the project.

The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

Throughout the project, streets will be open to local traffic. Residents will have access to their driveways except when curb and driveway approaches are installed, and they will be notified in advance about this work.

Further information about the project and construction schedule may be found at www.portwashingtonwi.gov/departments/public-works/engineering or by visiting the city’s Facebook page.
