Janesville Road Should Wrap Up in Early December
Road project fell behind schedule but work should end in the next few weeks along with Tess Corners Drive, and city planners look to 2013 to begin work on a recreational trail along Racine Avenue
Tis the season for winter, which should mean road construction is over. Almost.
The Public Works Committee met Monday night and heard from DPW Director Dave Simpson that Muskego's largest project is near the end, but won't complete its Phase I tasks until early December. Additional small pieces of work will also have to wait until spring, like concrete work at the intersection of Parkland Drive and Janesville.
Other updates for the roads include:
- Janesville Road - east and west bound lanes are now all open; lights have been erected up to just east of Bay Lane Drive, with crews completing them in the next two weeks. Simpson said WE Energies will be the final piece of that puzzle to supply the power in the lines. In addition, traffic signals remain to be installed, but those should also be ready in about three weeks.
- Tess Corners Drive - a final lift of asphalt is being laid Monday, with work expected to be done by Wednesday; pavment markings could also be applied by Wednesday, Simpson said, but if not, Monday of next week it would be ready. Signage and guard rails are also going to be installed next week.
- Racine Avenue - a recreational trail is planned for 2013 along the stretch of road from Woods to Janesville, and meetings with the County will begin next week to work on the design.
No further updates were needed for Pioneer Drive, as that project has been completed in late October.
