Storm Sewer Project Gets Green Light

Parallel system will address flooding and give neighbors “nice new ditches.”

People who’ve driven through the flooded intersection of Cornell Drive and Catalina in Muskego won’t have to worry about ending up in the ditch following downpours anymore.

A $227,000 storm sewer project to handle overflow in heavy rains was approved by the Public Works Committee July 18, and work could start as early as October 1 with target completion dates in late fall. 

Project costs will be funded through landfill tipping fees, so affected homeowners will “get nice new ditches as part of the project” at no cost to them, said City Engineer Dave Simpson. 

Letters will be going out to homeowners this week with more details, Simpson said.

Repaving Projects Approved, Start August 1.

 $477,000 in asphalt repaving work was also approved by the Committee and awarded to Payne and Dolan, Simpson said.  

Work on four resurfacing areas citywide and two intersections in the Muskego Industrial Park will be completed from August 1 – October 31.  The flexible timeframe for completion resulted in favorable bids, leaving additional funds that can be applied future resurfacing projects, Simpson said.
