Project Overview

The project includes construction of Cedar Street from Fish Hatchery Road to South Park Street, the reconstruction of South Street from West Wingra Drive to Midland Street and High Street from the cul de sac to South Street, and the resurfacing of West Wingra Drive from Fish Hatchery Road to South Street. The new portion of the Cedar street will include sanitary sewer, stormwater bioretention, asphalt pavement, gravel base, curb, sidewalk on both sides of the street, marked bike lanes, and parking on one side of the street. Cedar Street will be 40 feet from face of curb to face of curb.

The reconstruction of South Street includes the replacement of sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, asphalt pavement, gravel base, curb, and spot replacements of sidewalk. South Street will be 32 feet (north of Cedar) and 34 feet (south of Cedar) from face of curb to face of curb. On South Street, parking will be maintained on one side north of Cedar Street and both sides south of Cedar Street.

The reconstruction of High Street includes replacement of sanitary sewer, storm sewer, asphalt pavement, gravel base, the addition of curb, and sidewalk added to the east side of the street. High Street will be 28 feet from face of curb to face of curb and have parking on the east side of the street.

The resurfacing of West Wingra Drive includes replacement of sanitary sewer, water main, asphalt pavement, gravel base, and spot replacement of curb and sidewalk. West Wingra Drive will be 44 feet from face of curb to face of curb and have parking on both sides of the street. The intersection of South Street, High Street, and Midland Street will be reconfigured to provide safer accommodations for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles. The intersection of Cedar Street and South Park Street will be reconfigured with the addition of traffic islands to prevent Cedar Street cross traffic as well as provide safer crossings for pedestrians and bicycles. The intersection of Cedar Street and Fish Hatchery Road will include two pedestrian crossings and a traffic island.
