May 18, 2019 – West Bend, WI – Just a reminder construction is getting underway and Eighth Avenue is closed from Walnut Street to Washington Street/STH 33.
This will significantly impact parishioners at Holy Angels Church so leave some extra travel time to find a route and a place to park.
According to city officials the road will be closed to traffic until approximately late October for installation of underground utilities and street reconstruction.
Please note the project start date is weather dependent and may be delayed due to inclement weather.
The general contractor for this project is Wood Sewer & Excavating, Inc. from New London, Wisconsin.
There will also be a number of subcontractors working at various times during the project. Construction activities will include sanitary sewer installation, water main installation, storm sewer installation, roadway excavation, curb and gutter installation, curb ramp replacement, roadway reconstruction and restoration of disturbed areas.
Motorists are reminded to abide by all traffic control signs and devices as well as be aware of ongoing construction activities. Alternate routes should be planned to avoid construction whenever possible.
