South Winnequah Road Improvements
Updated April 2023
South Winnequah Road from Schluter Rd. to Bridge Rd. will be reconstructed in 2022. The project improvements include intersection crossing improvements, removal of existing "bumpouts", improved pedestrian facilities, improved bike facilities, speed humps to reduce traffic speeds, and replacement of existing pavement with some aggregate base repairs and storm sewer updates. Conceptual plans will be posted once the project design has been approved by the Public Works Committee and City Council. Bidding will begin in the Spring of 2022. Project construction is slated to start after July 11th.
Landscaping and items in the City's street right-of-way on the East side of the roadway between Maywood Park and Bridge Rd. between the back of the existing curb line and up to 11' may be impacted by construction. Please contact the City to discuss specific items that may be impacted.

Why the Delays?!
Private utilities like MGE, TDS, Charter, and ATT have not moved their infrastructure out of the way of construction. All involved have had issues finding time, materials, or labor, which is their messaging to the City. To this point 90% of the utilitys' work have been completed. The City cannot have their contractor perform work in these areas until the utility work has been completed, holding up final sections of sidewalks, retaining walls, restoration, and some driveways.
