2021 Public Works Improvement Projects

2021 Public Works Improvement Plan

As part of the 2021 Public Works Improvement Project, the Village of Waunakee will be resurfacing several streets in Waunakee. The project has been publicly bid and the Village Board awarded the project to Wolf Paving & Excavating of Madison, Inc., from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

The following streets have been designated for resurfacing:

Hartford Cove from Lexington Drive to Termini

Simon Crestway from South Street to Winston Way

Moravian Valley Road from 504 Moravian Valley Road to 322 Moravian Valley Road 

Lexington Drive from N Madison Street to N Division Street

Arbor Court from Presidio Drive to Termini 

Canterbury Court from Simon Crestway to Bristol Drive

Kay Drive from William Way to 306/307 Kay Drive

Camelot Court from Knightsbridge Road to Kensington Lane

Raymond Road from Fifth Street to Henry Street

East Verleen Avenue from North Madison Street to Pinehurst Drive

Holiday Drive from Centennial Parkway to Fifth Street

The Contractors will be removing the existing asphalt pavements, completing any street base (gravel) and minor utility repairs (as needed), adding new base material and re-grading the street in preparation for the new asphalt surface. In order to accommodate the construction activities, and for the safety of the workers, we ask that you please be aware of the construction equipment and workers and limit the use of the road during construction hours (7am – 7pm). The roads will be rebuilt one street at a time, and each road will remain open to vehicular travel throughout the project. However, drivers may encounter lane restrictions and possible minor delays during the construction. The Contractor will make every effort to provide access to driveways during the project and at the end of each day. Also, please be aware that travel within the construction zone will be at your own risk.

Annual Maintenance Projects

Chip Seal

Chip Sealing

The Village will be chip sealing several streets to prolong the life of the roadways. For a complete list of streets click here...

Chip Sealing is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layer(s) of asphalt with one or more layer(s) of fine aggregate. Chipseals are typically used on roads carrying lower traffic volumes, and the process is often referred to as "asphaltic surface treatment". 

Chipseals are constructed by evenly distributing a thin base of hot bitumen or asphalt onto an existing pavement and then embedding finely graded aggregate into it. The aggregate is evenly distributed over the seal spray, then rolled into a smooth pavement surface. It can keep pavement in good condition longer by sealing out water and repairing minor cracks. 


Sidewalk Repairs

In an attempt to ensure that sidewalks are reasonably safe for public travel, each year the Village engineering department administers a Sidewalk Safety Program. The Village Board has established the criteria used for determining unsafe or defective sidewalks and the Village staff inspects the public sidewalks within the Village right-of-way for defects or unsafe conditions based on the established criteria.

If your sidewalk was marked for repairs, you, as a property owner have a couple of options.  First, the Village will do the repairs as part of the Sidewalk Repair Project.  The Village shares the incurred cost of the Village-implemented repair with the homeowner.  Property owners will be assessed 50% of the incurred costs of the repairs and these costs will be collected using the special assessment process. The proposed cost of replacements will be determined after the inspection are complete and the construction contract has been awarded.  The final costs and assessments will be mailed to property owners after the work has been completed. 

Alternatively, property owners may elect to complete the repairs themselves; however, the repairs will need to be completed within 20 days of the notification.  Please be advised that you are strongly encouraged to hire a qualified concrete contractor (as determined by the Village), and the work must be completed in accordance with the Village Standard Specifications.   Also, you or your contractor are required to first obtain a Street Opening Permit for the repairs, and if the repairs are not done properly they will be completed by the Village, and assessed to you as discussed above.  Please note that property owners will NOT be reimbursed for any cost of repairs completed on your own. 

We appreciate your cooperation and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Bill Frederick, Public Works Director at the Village of Waunakee (608) 849-5765, or by email at bfrederick@waunakee.com .
