Sturgeon Bay readies for street improvements

The City of Sturgeon Bay just finished the bidding for the road work to be done in 2019.  The projects will start up in late April or early May, according to City Engineer Chad Shefchik.  A five year Capital Plan and Roadway Improvements summary includes ten reconstructions that include sewer and water replacement as well.  Shefchik shares some of the work to be done this summer.  

 

 

You can find a complete listing of roadway projects that the City of Sturgeon Bay will complete this year with this story.  

 


1) Georgia Street (from N 3rd Ave to N 4th Ave): Full reconstruction of the roadway. This roadway will have minimal changes but the project will include all new pavement, curbing, sidewalks, and replacement of the sanitary sewer & water mains. 2) Georgia Street (from N 4th Ave to N 5th Ave): Mill & pave. This project will include replacement of the pavement and spot replacement of the curbing & sidewalks. 3) Georgia Street (from N 5th Ave to 580’ east of N 5th Ave): Full reconstruction of the roadway. This roadway will have minimal changes but the project will include all new pavement, curbing, sidewalks on the south / east sides of the roadway, and replacement of the sanitary sewer & water mains. The sidewalks on the north / west sides of the roadway were replaced in 2018 by WPS and will remain in place. 4) Georgia Street (from 580’ east of N 5th Ave to N 8th Ave): Mill & pave. This project will include replacement of the pavement and spot replacement of the curbing & sidewalks. In addition, the sidewalk on the west side of N 7th Ave will be extended from its current termination point to Georgia Street. Typically the City has assessed the abutting property Owners for the cost of new sidewalks while the City pays for the remainder of the restoration work to complete the project. The 2019 Capital Roadway Improvements include an estimated special assessment of $3,414.30. This special assessment would be applied to 1 parcel. 5) N 3rd Ave (from Delaware Street to Alabama Street): Mill & pave. On this roadway segment the east curb line was installed with very little pitch resulting in poor drainage that contributed to the deterioration of the roadway. Therefore, the majority of the east curb line will be replaced and 2 new storm sewer inlets & crossings will be added that will drain water to the lawn area on the west side of the roadway. The additional storm sewer work will change the pitch of the curb line enough that rebasing of the roadway at these areas will also be required. Also, the storm sewer on the west side of N 3rd Ave near Delaware Street will be modified to direct more storm sewer water to the engineered wetlands in Sunset Park. The remainder of the project will include replacement of the pavement and spot replacement of the remaining curbing. 6) Alabama Street (from N 3rd Ave to 250’ west of N 3rd Ave): Mill & pave. This project will include replacement of the pavement and the removal of the “island” at N 3rd Ave to create a more traditional intersection. 7) E Pine Street (from S Madison Ave to S Neenah Ave): Mill & pave. This project will include replacement of the pavement and spot replacement of the curbing & sidewalks. 8) S Kendale Ave (from W Pine Street to Termination): Full reconstruction of the roadway. This project will include all new pavement, curbing, and replacement of the water main. In addition, the roadway width (from face of curb to face of curb) will be reduced by 2’-0” from 33’-0” to 31’-0”. This reduction in roadway width was required to reduce the cross slope of the roadway cross section and reduce the roadway pitch at the cul-de-sac on the end of the street. These changes will improve the roadway safety and allow for easier snow removal. 9) W Elm Street (from N Hudson Ave to N Duluth Ave): Mill & pave. This project will include replacement of the pavement and spot replacement of the curbing. 10) Sidewalk addition on the north side of Florida Street from N 7th Ave to the new development being constructed on the Amity Field site: The approved development currently under construction includes a sidewalk along Florida Street. This sidewalk addition will tie the sidewalk for the development to the sidewalks at N 7th Ave. The cost for this project will be billed to TID #3 (Note: the budget for TID #3 includes money for the proposed sidewalk addition).
