If you had a "roads pool" at work to guess which of Muskego's road projects would get done first this year, listen up. Dave Simpson, director of public works, provided an update on their status and the estimated end dates Monday night during the Public Works Committee meeting.
Janesville Road: The 2012 Phase I part of the project is on schedule and crews are continuing to grade the westbound lanes. Finishing work on the eastbound side includes installation of streetscape structures and some landscaping. Estimated completion: end of October.
Pioneer Drive: After a brief halt to operations for the festival, work began again on Monday, with continued installation of water laterals, which should be completed by Wednesday, Simpson said. Curb and gutter installation will begin the end of this week and continue into next week. Estimated completion: end of October.
Tess Corners Drive: Work to reroute utilities has proved more tedious along the roadway, and will likely not end until Sept. 14. After this portion is finished, regrading work is expected to take an additional four to six weeks, using two crews to expedite the work. Estimated completion: early to mid November.
: Asphalting work is completed, with grading and restoration work being done this week. The trail is officially open for pedestrian traffic to the high school. Simpson said the response to the trail has been "positive and immediate" with bikers and pedestrians using the path already. Simpson called the project an "overwhelming success."
