The Saukville Village Board has approved a memorandum of understanding that would split the cost of resurfacing Cedar Sauk Road between the village and towns of Saukville and Grafton.

The project, which is scheduled to be completed next year, would cost about $292,000 to resurface Cedar Sauk Road from South Main Street/Highway O west to Maple Road.

The three communities share jurisdiction over the 1.87-mile stretch of road, with the Town of Grafton having the largest portion, a little over 0.8 of a mile.

The Village of Saukville’s share of the project totals $80,200 and covers about a half-mile of road, including the north half of Cedar Sauk Road from the railroad tracks to the Town of Grafton boundary and the north half of the road from the Town of Grafton boundary to the Town of Saukville boundary.

The Town of Saukville’s cost for the project totals $84,900 and covers the north half of the road from Maple Road for about a half-mile to the village limits. 

The Town of Grafton cost totals $127,000 and covers the south half of Cedar Sauk Road from Maple Road to the village and the south half from the village to Highway O.

Reconstruction of the intersection of Highway O and Cedar Sauk Road will be coordinated with Ozaukee County, the memorandum states.

Grants will be sought to help pay for the project, officials said.

The memorandum also commits the three communities to maintain their portions of the road for the next 10 years, including crack filling, snow plowing, filling potholes, shoulder repairs, tree removal and chip sealing.

Both towns have approved the memorandum.

Village Public Works Director Ray deBruijn told trustees that the village will replace two culverts on the road in preparation for the resurfacing.

“Both need to be replaced, and now is the time to do it,” deBruijn said.

One culvert is at Knollwood Road, which is completely the village’s responsibility, and another is at Colonial Parkway, which the village shares with the Town of Grafton.

DeBruijn said the county will be contracted to do the work on the culverts. Work should be completed by the end of August or early September, he said.
