August 4, 2014

On Saturday the intersection of Duplainville Road and Green Road was completed. Unfortunately, due to scattered rain storms throughout the area on Friday and Saturday, the crew that was scheduled to finish the paving today has been pushed back one day.

The remainder of the paving on Green Road, from the railroad tracks east to Springdale Road, is now scheduled for Tuesday, August 4.

We are still working with the contractor to resolve final landscaping issues throughout the entire project site.


August 1, 2014

Final paving of the remainder of Green Road, including the Duplainville Road intersection is planned for Saturday, August 2nd. If paving is not completed on Saturday, it will be completed on Monday, August 4th.

Final pavement markings are anticipated to be placed on Monday or Tuesday, August 4th and 5th.


July 23, 2014

The final surface course placement is anticipated to begin on Thursday, July 24, 2014. The proposed schedule is as follows:

  1. Thursday, July 24 - Pewaukee Road (Hwy 164) to Redford Blvd.
  2. Friday, July 25 - Intersections between Pewaukee Road and Redford Blvd.
  3. Saturday, July 26 - Redford Blvd. to 200 feet west of Duplainville Road.

Due to some underground pipe repairs that must be made, the schedule for Duplainville Road and Green Road from Springdale Road is unknown. During the final paving we ask you limit your trips in the active construction area. Drive slowly on the new asphalt if within 500 feet of the paver and do not accelerate quickly or make sharp turns. Following these guidelines will assist in providing a smooth riding surface.

While Green Road will remain open during this phase it is possible that side street access from Five Fields Subdivision may be closed to Green Road. We recommend that on Thursday and Friday, residents in Five Fields Subdivision exit on Pewaukee Road or Capitol Drive.


July 15, 2014

As you may have noticed, activity has picked up on Green Road! All excess asphalt has been milled off and barricades/cones have been placed on all raised manhole covers. There will stay in place until final paving, which is anticipated in the next 7 days. It does create a bit of a challenge for driving, so please be careful when passing the barricades. The railroad crossing east of Duplainville Road has been paved, including adjustments to the grade to lessen the bump at this location.

On Wednesday and Thursday (7/16-7/17), a section of failed storm sewer pipe and asphalt roadway will be replaced and repaired immediately east of the off ramp from Redford Boulevard. The operations in this area may close or significantly reduce traffic access while this work is being completed. Additionally, there will be a crew on side completing the televising of the storm sewers along the entire length of the project. This is being completed to insure no other sections of the storm sewer pipe have failed. Please note that it is extremely rare to have a section of concrete pipe fail, but taking the precaution to make sure there are no other issues prior to final paving is important. Once the roadway is paved, the City has a moratorium on open-cutting the roadway.

We are aware that there are multiple areas where grass growth was not fully established or must be redone. Once we have a schedule for this work, we will let everyone know. As always, we appreciate everyone's patience through this project.


July 11, 2014

The final paving of Green Road is anticipated over the next two weeks. Stark Asphalt will be on the site today to begin milling the excess asphalt ramps along the edge of the curb and gutter for the length of the roadway. They will also be removing the asphalt ramps at all manholes along the project route.

The road will be open to traffic during this operation. Because the manholes will be exposed until the paving takes place, there will be traffic control devices such as cones or barrels, placed adjacent to or on the manholes themselves. We will keep you informed as to the actual schedule for paving when we receive it from the contractor. However, once paving starts we would like to keep traffic to a minimum for the first day.


May 27, 2014

Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, May 28, 2014, the contractor will begin to replace the interim storm inlets. As you may recall, about half of the inlets were placed in asphalt curbs for the winter to provide drainage in the event the roadway would settle due to the extensive amount of trenching work that took place.

The replacement will raise the inlets to the final grade and complete all curb and gutter work. This part of the project will take a few days to complete. There will not be any road closures, only partial lane closures in the area where work is taking place. Access should be available to all parcels at all times.

A comprehensive walk-through of the project will take place on Friday, May 30, 2014 to determine any other necessary repairs. For those of you that have notified us of an issue, those items will be added to the list that will be provided to the contractor.


May 19, 2014

After a long and arduous winter, spring is finally here to stay. The seeding along Green Road has not yet started to germinate in all areas. We will be watching this over the next few weeks before we require the contractor to come back and re-seed and areas with bare spots or sparse growth.

The final lift of asphalt is planned for mid to late June. Prior to that time, areas of damaged or failed pavement will be repaired or replaced. As you may recall, one of the reasons we didn't put the final lift of asphalt on in 2013, was the potential of settled trenches, frost heaves or other detrimental conditions. There are a few spots where this has occurred they will be repaired within the next few weeks.


November 1, 2013

Green Road is now open for all traffic! There are still some items that must be completed, such as: setting mailboxes on areas west of Duplainville Road, setting of street signs and the correction of other minor items. There is still one significant phase of the project yet to be completed which is the placement of the final asphalt pavement. This will occur beginning in mid-June, 2014. With the large amount of underground utility work that took place on this project, the final lift of pavement is delayed to allow for any minor settlement of trenches or excavated areas during winter and spring. After these settled areas are identified, they will be repaired and the final lift of asphalt will be placed. On behalf of the City of Pewaukee, we would like to thank everyone for their cooperation during construction with the multiple road closures, detours and daily changes that took place. Extensive efforts were taken to provide as much information as possible to residents and businesses during the project to allow access throughout the construction period.

Several questions have come up regarding the roadway, listed below is additional information you may find helpful.

Q: Why is the road bumpy in some spots, especially around manhole covers?

A: Only the binder or base course of asphalt was placed this year. There is still another 1 1/2 inches of asphalt to be placed in 2014. All of the manholes were placed at the final grade of the roadway. Prior to final paving in 2014, the asphalt ramps around the manholes will be removed and the roadway will ride much smoother.

Q: Why are some of the storm inlets in concrete and others are lower with asphalt curb?

A: With the final lift of asphalt being placed in 2014, the edge of the curb and gutter has a small ramp on it so that the plows don't damage it. However, this keeps storm water from getting into the inlets. At selected low points in the roadway temporary inlets and asphalt curb were installed. In 2014, prior to placement of the final list of asphalt, the inlets will be raised to final grade and concrete curb and gutter will be installed around them for a uniform appearance.

Q: Will the road be closed again in 2014 for the final work?

A: No, but we will let everyone know when work will start and the best ways to access residences and businesses at that time. 2014 work is anticipated to take approximately 10-12 working days and will occur between June 15 and July 18, 2014.

Q: Some of the grass seed was just planted in the last week of October, what if it doesn't grow?

A: The contractor is responsible for achieving substantial grass growth of all restored areas. On approximately June 1, 2014 we will be inspecting all areas for grass growth and informing the contractor of repairs or reseeding that needs to take place. Property owners are encouraged, but not required, to water and cut the grass in spring to assist in the restoration process.

Q: What if the contractor damaged my private property, how do I get it repaired?

A: Extensive photographs were taken of the entire project site prior to construction. If you feel something was damaged please let City staff know (Maggie Wagner, (262) 691-0804) and your claim will be reviewed. Some damages were done by private utility contractors such as the electric, gas or telephone company. The City's contractor is not responsible for those repairs. However, if City can provide you with the contact information for the appropriate utility.

Q: Why is the railroad crossing so bumpy?

A: Like the remainder of the roadway, the final lift of asphalt needs to be placed in this area in 2014. However, one of the tracks was raised 5 inches when the railroad installed the new crossing and the City was not informed this was going to occur. The area will be reviewed in 2014 prior to paving the final lift.

Finally, thanks to everyone for your assistance and cooperation during the duration of the project.


October 11, 2013

The final stages of this year's project are now in sight! The majority of all concrete work has been completed or will be completed Monday (October 14th). Asphalt paving is scheduled to be on-site beginning on Wednesday or Thursday (October 16th or 17th). Asphalt paving will take several days to complete. As this time it is anticipated that installation will begin at Duplainville Road and proceed to the west. Prior to the beginning of asphalt paving, there will be two grading crews, a landscape crew and two crews setting manhole structures to final grade. Given this, there will be a lot of activity between Duplainville Road and Pewaukee Road for the next 7 days.

        It is recommended that access to Wagner Park be from Pewaukee Road through next Saturday (October 19th).

The railroad crossing work is almost complete. However, the crossing may not be opened until the end of the day on Monday (October 14th). However, intersection work between Duplainville Road and Green Road will continue through Thursday (October 17th).

        It is recommended that all deliveries and local business/residential access be from east of the railroad tracks from Springdale
        Road.

The entire length of Green Road will be closed to through traffic once the pavement has been placed. Items such as final restoration, pavement markings and street signs still need to be installed.


October 4, 2013

The railroad schedule for the replacement of the crossing east of Duplainville Road has been set. The complete and full closing of the crossing is planned for the week starting Monday (October 7th) at 7AM. The road will be closed fully at the railroad crossing for that week.

        It is recommended that business and local access be from Springdale Road for the week starting October 7th. Emergency access
        for the area west of the railroad crossing will be from Duplainville Road. Emergency access for all areas east of the railroad
        crossing will be from Springdale Road.

The grading crew is finishing up work between Redford Boulevard and Wagner Park. Once finished, they will move to Duplainville Road on Monday or Tuesday (October 7th or 8th). During the reconstruction of the intersection there will be delays as flagmen direct traffic around the active operation.

        Access to Trinity Academy will still be from Duplainville Road and any traffic exiting Trinity Academy should follow the current
        pattern. Access to Wagner Park should be from Pewaukee Road, STH 164.

The curb and gutter crew will be busy with installation starting Monday (October 7th), between Redford Boulevard and Pewaukee Road.  The current plan is to start on the south side of the road at approximately Emerald Lane and then go west to Pewaukee Road. They will then place the concrete curb and gutter on the north side of Green Road from Pewaukee Road to Redford Boulevard. The schedule for curb and gutter placement is dependent on weather conditions. Local driveways will be closed for three to four days while the curb and gutter cures and achieves appropriate strength.

        Main access roadways and access to Bridlewood Apartments will be kept open at all times.


September 30, 2013

The grading crew that is onsite will be moving its operations east of Wagner Park. They will be excavating and grading the section of Green Road between Greenbriar Road and Redford Boulevard.

        It is recommended that all access to Wagner Park be from Pewaukee Road, Highway 164 beginning Tuesday (October 1st).

The landscaping crew will be installing a small section of concrete block retaining wall on the north side of Green Road from Springdale Road to 200 feet west of Springdale Road. It is recommended that access for the section of Green Road between Springdale Road.

        It is recommended that access for the section of Green Road between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road be from
        Duplainville Road beginning Tuesday (October 1st).

Mailboxes between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road are anticipated to be reset in front of residences and businesses late this week. (October 3rd or 4th).

The railroad schedule for the replacement of the crossing east of Duplainville road has been set. This week, we recommend business access be from Duplainville Road. The closing of the crossing is planned for next week (October 7-12th). The road will be closed fully at the railroad crossing for that week.

         It is recommended that business and local access be from Springdale Road starting next week.

The first two lifts of asphalt were placed in two sections of Green Road. The first is the section between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road and the second is the section in the area of Redford Boulevard. Even though these sections have pavement, they remain closed to through traffic and only local access to businesses and residences is allowed. Enforcement of the "Local Traffic Only" signs are still in effect for all sections of Green Road. There is still significant work remaining in these sections for retaining walls, landscape restoration, pavement sweeping, street signs and pavement markings.


September 27, 2013

Many residents have asked "When will this project be done?". We definitely understand your anticipation and appreciate your patience! At this time, we are anticipating that they bulk of construction will be done around October 30th. This date is dependent on several factors including weather and utility relocations. As many of you are aware, the relocation of utility facilities on-site has caused some delays in the project and work schedule. Ideally, all private utilities (gas, telephone and cable TV service) will have all of their facilities relocated by the end of September. The City appreciates everyone's patience as we wind through the last stages of the project in 2013. There will be some additional asphalt paving work that will occur in June of next year (2014).

Relocation of AT&T and Time Warner facilities in Green Road, east and west of Redford Boulevard is to be completed today (September 27th). This will allow for the grading operations to be completed. Currently the grading crew is working west of Wagner Park. It is anticipated that they will remain west of Wagner Park until Monday (September 30th). The grading crew will be constructing a small storm water pond on the west side of the access to Wagner Park.

        The purpose of this pond is for both storm water storage and storm water quality. The pond will remain dry most of the time
        with the exception of rainfall events.

Originally, this crew was to work in the intersection of Duplainville Road and Green Road today (September 27th) but due to a delay in the removal of old power poles, the work on the intersection has been delayed. In order to maintain access to Wagner Park, the crew will not be working on Saturday (September 28th).

        Access to Wagner Park shall be from Redford Boulevard through Sunday (September 29th). After Monday (September 30th)
        we recommend business access be from Duplainville Road. For the following week, (October 7th) we recommend business
        access be from Springdale Road.


September 26, 2013

The first two lifts of asphalt were placed in two sections of Green Road this past week. The first is the section between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road, and the second is the section near Redford Boulevard. Even though these sections have pavement, they remain closed to through traffic and only local access to businesses and residences is allowed. Enforcement of the "Local Traffic Only" signs by law enforcement is still in effect for all sections of Green Road.

        There is still significant work remaining in these sections for retaining walls, landscape restoration, pavement sweeping, street
        signs and pavement markings.

Relocation of AT&T and Time Warner facilities in Green Road, east and west of Redford Boulevard is to be completed on August 27th. This will allow for the grading operations to be completed. Currently the grading crew is working west of Wagner Park. It is anticipated that they will remain west of Wagner Park until Monday (September 30th).

At approximately 11AM Thursday (September 26th) the grading crew will be moving to the intersection of Green Road and Duplainville Road. They will be reconstructing the intersection on Thursday and Friday (September 27th). Business access to Green Road is recommended to be from Springdale Road for those two days.

        The railroad has revised its schedule for the replacement of the crossing east of Duplainville Road. The closing of the crossing
        is planned for the week starting Monday (October 7th). The road will be closed fully at the railroad crossing for that week.

Access to Wagner Park shall be from Redford Boulevard through Sunday (September 29th). After Monday (September 30th), it is recommended that access to Wagner Park be from Pewaukee Road. Grading operations are anticipated to be completed by the following Monday (October 7th) for all portions west of Duplainville Road with curb and gutter and asphalt paving to follow.

        Next week (September 30th) we recommend business access be from Duplainville Road. For the following week (October
        7th) we recommend business access be from Springdale Road.


September 13, 2013

A significant amount of work was completed this past week with the installation of the curb and gutter between Duplainville Road and Springdale Road. The road grading crew will be backfilling driveways and adding base stone between Duplainville Road and Springdale Road on Friday (September 13th). On Saturday (September 14th), they will return to road excavations in the area of Littlefield Court, east of Pewaukee Road.

        It is recommended that all access to Wagner Park be from Redford Boulevard for September 14th.

The underground crew will be installing a large storm inlet structure east of Wagner Park's entrance on Friday (September 13th). Access to Wagner Park should be from Pewaukee Road on Friday (September 13th). For the week of September 16th, the underground crew will be adjusting manhole structures and completing storm sewer work for the entire length of the project. Their operations will delay access at various points along the length of Green Road, but access will be available at their location.

        For the week of September 16th, it is recommended that business access to Green Road be from Duplainville Road.

On Monday (September 23rd), weather permitting, asphalt will be installed between Duplainville Road and Springdale Road.

        For the week of September 30th, the railroad crossing will be replaced east of Duplainville Road; resulting in a full road
        closure for that week. Emergency, business and local access for that week shall be from Springdale Road.


September 9, 2013

The number of crews working has dropped from 5 to 3. However, access will still be limited over the next few weeks due to the types of construction.

The grading crew is currently working at the intersection of Green Road and Redford Boulevard ramp. This crew will be moving to the intersection of Pewaukee Road (Hwy 164) and Green Road by noon (Monday, September 9th). They will then be excavating and placing the new road base to the east.

        It is recommended that all access to Wagner Park be from Redford Boulevard for the week of September 9th to
        September 13th.

The underground crew is replacing a water service today (Monday, September 9th) 100 feet east of Duplainville Road. This will temporarily close the road during the day. Access is recommended for areas east of the railroad tracks from Springdale Road. Beginning Tuesday (September 10th) this crew will be installing storm sewer between Pewaukee Road and Redford Boulevard.

The concrete curb and gutter crew will start paving on Tuesday (September 10th). They will start approximately 700 feet east of the railroad tracks on the south side of Green Road and go westerly to Duplainville Road. They will then turn around and come back on the north side of Green Road towards Springdale Road. This operation will continue until Wednedsay with additional curb and gutter installation. Local access to private driveways will be shut off for three days while the concrete gains strength.

        Homeowners should park on the roadway at night during this operation and also make sure that vehicles do not block
        construction equipment during the day. Business driveways will remain open or have a gap place for access. Greenwood
        Drive and Pineview Circle will remain open during this phase.

Beginning Monday (September 30th) the railroad crossing 300 feet east of Duplainville Road will be completely closed for one week for the installation of a new crossing. For that week, all emergency and local access east of the railroad tracks shall be from Springdale Road.


September 3, 2013

The grading and excavation crew will be working west of the railroad tracks going west to Duplainville Road. It is recommended all business and local traffic, between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road, access the area from Springdale Road for the week of September 3rd-7th.

An underground crew will be on-site to install water main pipe insulation and storm sewer leads. Due to the nature of the work, the crew will be in multiple locations along the entire length of Green Road. The road will be open, but delays are expected.

Curb and gutter installation will begin the week of September 9th. We will be working with individual residents and businesses to maintain access as needed. After curb and gutter are installed, they must cure from 3 days (driveways) to 7 days (all other curb) before it may be driven on or have stone base placed against it. Although it may appear there is no work occurring in certain areas of the project, please be patient for it is the necessary "cure time" for the concrete to gain strength.


August 30, 2013

There will be NO work on Green Road over Labor Day weekend. Local quarries are all closed, so previously scheduled work on Duplainville Road and Green Road will not occur. Crews will return on Tuesday, September 3rd.


August 28, 2013 (part two)

The contractor does not plan on having pipe laying crews working this weekend (Saturday) on Green Road. However, the contractor will work with one or two grading crews on the intersection of Green Road and Duplainville Road.

This is being done to minimize the disruption to businesses that access through the intersection; as most businesses will be closed on Saturday. However, if you have a planned delivery or social function at a private residence we recommend that you access from Springdale Road for areas east of Duplainville Road and from Redford Boulevard for areas west of Duplainville Road.

Note: This schedule is highly dependent on the completion of the gas main relocation by We Energies by Friday, August 30th.


August 28, 2013

The water main shut off and valve replacement will proceed today, as planned. The water main will be shut off at 8:30AM and notice will be provided when the main is back in service. Local access to this area will be severely limited on Wednesday.

  • Underground Pipe Crew: Continuing to install storm sewer in an easement south of Green Road and west of Duplainville Road. Their operations do not affect traffic on Green Road.
  • Underground Crew: Continuing to install water services west of Redford Boulevard. This crew will delay traffic but the road should generally be open in the vicinity of their operations.
  • West Grading Crew: Continuing work from 800 feet east of Redford Boulevard to 1100 feet east of Redford Boulevard (west of the fire station). The road is open but significant delays of 5 minutes or more may be encountered for local traffic.

August 22, 2013

A large amount of activity continues along all portions of Green Road. The majority of storm sewer has been installed between Springdale Road and Duplainville Road. At this time, construction crews are waiting for AT&T and Time Warner to remove their facilities from several power poles located between Springdale Road and Greenwood Road.

The first road excavation crew has begun the removal of the existing roadway, road base, and grading for the new road bed. The crew started 200 feet west of Greenwood Road and is moving to the west. The grading crew will excavate the full width of the proposed road cross section (30'-60' wide), as needed. Due to the type of excavation, and the placement of the stone backfill, one lane of traffic will be open while work takes place. However, residents and businesses may encounter significant delays while trucks are being loaded or new material is being placed.

Starting Monday, August 26, a second road excavation crew is anticipated to begin at Greenbriar Road and work east toward Duplainville Road. Once both crews have completed operations in this area, curb and gutter will be placed throughout the area between Redford Boulevard and Springdale Road.

Storm sewer installation is continuing between Duplainville Road and Redford Boulevard in addition to between Littlefield Court and Pewaukee Road. A third pipe laying crew will be on-site beginning Wednesday, August 21. They will be doing minor structure work, water services and storm sewer work.

There are two water valves that need to be replaced that provide service to the Bridlewood Apartments. It is anticipated these water valves will be replaced on Wednesday, August 28. Residents within Bridlewood Apartments should plan on not having service beginning at 7AM and continuing until 5PM on Wednesday, August 28th.


August 7, 2013

There are several updates to the schedule for the upcoming week.

  • Wednesday, August 7th: New 8 inch water service will be installed to the north and south sides of Green Road approximately 300 feet east of Redford Blvd. The installation of these services will close the road at this location for the entire day. The water main will also be shut off from approximately Redford Blvd. to the Pewaukee Fire Station and hydrants in the area will be out of service starting at approximately 7:30 am. We will provide an update when the main is back in service.

    A pavement pulverizer will be onsite to mill the roadway section from Pewaukee Road to Redford Blvd. This will create a gravel road condition for the remainder of the project. The "Road Closed, No Thru Traffic" signs will now be posted for the length of the project site. If you live between Pewaukee Road and Redford Blvd, we strongly suggest that you do your best to access your residence from the internal subdivision street in Five Fields. Wagner Park access will generally be from Redford Blvd. for the next few weeks, with the exception of the installation of a box culvert; as noted below.

    A roadway excavation crew will be removing and replacing areas adjacent to the railroad track for improvements. This will effectively close the railroad crossing area for one day. Businesses and residents east of the railroad crossing should access their parcels from Springdale Road.
  • Thursday, August 8th: A large drainage structure, a 6' wide by 3' high box culvert, will be installed 100 feet east of the entrance to Wagner Park across Green Road. Green Road will be closed at this location for the day. It is possible that the road closure may extend overnight and into Friday, August 9th. We will provide an update if this occurs.
  • Monday, August 12th: A road crew will begin excavation and regrading of Green Road beginning at Springdale Road and proceeding west. Loaded trucks will be exiting Green Road onto Duplainville Road. In general, the road will be closed in the vicinity of the excavation crew as they move to the east. Green Road will be opened nightly to local traffic and emergency access.

Note: Once the roadway is closed, local traffic for businesses and residents will be allowed, but no through traffic will be allowed. Schedules may change dependent on the speed at which construction takes place, weather conditions or conflicts with other utilities.


July 26, 2013

With the recent addition of a second crew working to install new storm sewer, the Green Road Reconstruction project is now fully underway!

Beginning July 28th, a storm sewer crew will be working on Green Road 400 feet west of Duplainville Road. They will continue to the west to Redford Boulevard. (This crew has encountered bedrock and may need to blast rock to be able to install the pipe.)

The second crew will install storm sewer from just west of the railroad tracks to Duplainville Road. They will then cross Duplainville Road and install storm sewer in the first 400 feet west of Duplainville Road.

A third crew is anticipated to start road excavation, grading and stone base placement beginning at Springdale Road on August 5, 2013. The movement of this crew will be dependent upon soil conditions. However, plan on Green Road being impassable in the immediate area of the crew's operation.

Beginning Monday August 5th We Energies gas will be relocating the gas main on the east side of Duplainville Road at Green Road. This work will take one week to complete and there may be times when access at this Green Road location is limited.

Note: Once the roadway is closed, local traffic for businesses and residents will be allowed, but no through traffic will be allowed. Schedules may change dependent on the speed at which construction takes place, weather conditions or conflicts with other utilities.

As of Monday, June 24th, signs were posted indicating road closures of the section of roadway between Duplainville Road and Springdale Road. The road will be closed starting Monday, July 1st. The detour route will be posted on Friday, June 28th, which takes drivers to Watertown Road as an alternate route.

Work will begin with the installation of water services and water connections to parcels that currently don't have service. Storm sewer will then be installed in the area 200 feet east of the railroad tracks and immediately west of the railroad tracks. The contractor will be using two full underground crews and anticipates two weeks to complete this work.

The next section of work is anticipated to start July 15th between Duplainville Road and Redford Boulevard. Duplainville Road to Redford Boulevard will be closed at that time; however, the section of Green Road between Redford Boulevard and Pewaukee Road is anticipated to remain open until August 1st while utility companies are relocating lines in the area.

Note: Once the roadway is closed, local traffic for businesses and residents will be allowed, but no through traffic will be allowed. Schedules may change dependent on the speed at which construction takes place, weather conditions or conflicts with other utilities.

Work has begun! Tree removal operations began on April 16, 2013 and are expected to take approximately one month to complete. The contractor has started on the west end of the project at Pewaukee Road and is proceeding to the east. The initial stage of the contract will be tree removal only, the second stage of the contract will be stump removal.

Q: What do the markings on the trees mean?

A: Blue Ribbon: tree will be saved. Pink Dot: tree scheduled to be removed.

Note: Only trees 4" in diameter or larger have been marked. Trees less than 4" may be removed if they are within the grading limits of the project. Some trees within a general clearing area are not marked.

Significant thought went into deciding which trees will be removed as part of the project. Trees within the project corridor were evaluated three times within the last two years by the City's Urban Forestry Consultant; the most recent being in early April 2013. Changes to the road design have been made with the goal of preserving as many trees as possible.

The City of Pewaukee is planning the reconstruction of Green Road in 2013 from Pewaukee Road (STH 164) to Springdale Road (CTH SR). The project will consist of replacing the existing rural cross-section with an urban cross-section, which will include new concrete curb and gutter and storm sewer system. It is anticipated that the grading and disturbance limits will extend from right-of-way to right-of-way.

The Green Road reconstruction project is planned to be bid in April 2013, with construction starting in June 2013.
