Town decides to spend $250,000 for road repairs

Ozaukee Press staff

 Fredonia town supervisors last week approved spending nearly a quarter-million dollars on road repairs this year.

    The biggest expenditure will be on Jay Road, to resurface and apply gravel to its shoulder for about 4,600 feet west of Highway E, at an estimated cost of $102,388.

    Other projects and their estimated costs include:

    • Asphalt overlay and gravel shoulder on Cedar Valley Road from Willow Valley to Beiver roads, $38,300;

    • Chip seal on Cedar Valley Road from Hickory Grove Road to Jay Road, $19,400;

    • Ditching and three culvert replacements on Pioneer Road east of Highway E for about 1,500 feet, $19,000;

    • Chip seal Belgium-Kohler Road from Cedar Valley Road to Highway I, $16,785;

    • Ditching and one new cross culvert for about 650 feet between curves on Fairway Drive, $9,900;

    • Chip seal Fredonia-Kohler Road between Highways I and H, $8,700;

    • Chip seal Loraine Court from Loraine Drive to the cul de sac, $3,300.

    Other potential expenses include re-graveling Willow Valley Road east of Highway 57 and hauling soil from Fairway ditch work.

    Town officials also are looking to replace a cross-culvert on Cedar Valley Road in the overlay area and to seal coat the town Recycling Center lot.

    Supervisors set aside a $22,227 contingency fund to help pay for those projects. 

    Maintenance and repairs are also planned on the bridge over the north branch of the Milwaukee River on Riverside Road.

    That cost will possibly be shared with the Town of Farmington in Washington County, Town Clerk Bob Eichner said.
