If it's spring, it must be construction season

Photo by:

It's a common phrase around Wisconsin: there are two seasons, winter and road construction. This summer a few local municipalities are planning major or minor projects. Here are the details you need to know about your local roads.

1. Village of Big Bend

Big Bend has already started some utility work on its major summer project. Industrial Drive in the Big Bend Industrial Park will be completely restructured to be widened, include curb and gutter and a storm sewer, at a cost of just under $1 million. Department of Public Works Superintendent Eric Pedersen said that traffic to businesses will be affected because Industrial Drive is currently a dead-end road, but business owners will be apprised of updates. The project is expected to last until August, weather dependent.

2. Town of Eagle

Shearer Road and Serentity Court will be resurfaced this summer. The timeline is still uncertain, but Town Clerk Lynn Pepper said the work will likely occur at two different times, as the projects will be done by two different contractors. The Shearer Road bid was awarded for $209,955.30. Serenity Court's bid will be awarded for $41,323. 27. No detours are expected.

3. Village of Eagle

Village President Richard Spurrell said the village plans to do only crack filling, as needed, this summer.

The village has not yet formalized plans for road work this summer.

4., 5. Village of North Prairie

North Prairie will complete two major road projects this summer. Harrison Street from Highway 59 to the railroad tracks will be repaved, and the sidewalk will be replaced. Highway 59 will be repaved from North Oakridge Drive to the Industrial Park.

The Harrison Street project is estimated to cost $103,400, and the North Oakridge Drive project is projected to cost $220,900. The request for bids will come out in May and then, according to Village Clerk Rhoda Bagley, the village hopes to move the projects along as soon as the contracts are awarded. No detours are expected.

6. Town of Vernon

The town will have a paving program this summer that includes part of Hidden Lakes subdivision and Norland Trompet subdivisions. The town plans to complete Lake Side Drive, Hilltop Lane, Hidden Lakes Court, Karlstad Drive from Norway to Highway ES, Norway Drive and part of Danielson Street. The town will also complete Kelsey Avenue from Highway 164 to the town limits.

There is no current schedule for the project, but DPW Director Doug Salentine said they typically work with the goal to be completed before school starts. The bid has been awarded for $368,968.45. Salentine said he does not expect there to be any closures or detours during the project.
