2024 ANNUAL STREET & UTILITY RECONSTRUCTION

Watertown, Wis. (May 23, 2024) – Reconstruction of the 2024 Annual Streets is scheduled to commence on Monday, June 3rd depending on weather conditions.

The City has contracted with Forest Landscaping & Construction, Inc. of Lake Mills, WI to perform the work. The work S. Eleventh Street and S. Twelfth Street/College Avenue includes the replacement of the watermain system, replacement of the storm sewer system, replacement of the curb and gutter, driveway aprons, spot sidewalk replacements, and the full replacement of the gravel base and asphalt pavement. The work on Oconomowoc Avenue includes the replacement of the watermain system, replacement of the storm sewer system, and the full replacement of the gravel base and asphalt pavement. The existing curb and gutter will remain in place. The existing pavement on Oconomowoc Avenue is scheduled to be pulverized beginning June 3rd after which the street may be reopened to “Local Traffic” only. The streets will be closed to “All Traffic” for the majority of the construction. The contractor may open the streets to “Local Traffic” during non-working hours.

Traffic control will be installed prior to construction. The Detour Route will be signed for traffic to bypass the construction zones. Please direct all construction-related questions to the Engineering Division at (920) 262-4060.
