Project overview

The Verleen project will involve replacing the existing water main, sanitary sewer and service laterals to your property line, but we will NOT be replacing the remaining existing sewer or water service laterals (on private property) that extend to dwellings.  If you are considering an upgrade or are experiencing problems with your existing sanitary sewer or water services, we recommend that you please discuss the issues with Randy Dorn at Waunakee Utilities, (608) 849-8111.

Proposed improvements:

  • Remove and replace the existing asphalt street surface 
  • Remove and replace the underlying street base materials (gravel)
  • Replace the existing water main and service laterals within Right-of-Way
  • Replace the existing sanitary sewer and service laterals within the Right-of-Way
  • Update and improve storm sewer and provide storm laterals to the homes that require them 
  • Replace the existing concrete curb and gutter
  • Replace any existing concrete sidewalk and add sidewalk on both sides of the street
  • Replace the existing driveway aprons 
  • Restore any disturbed lawn areas with topsoil and seed 
  • Update street lighting throughout the project

Schedule

We anticipate that the contractors will begin the Verleen project sometime in early spring, and the project should be completed in approximately 16-20 weeks, without delays, and weather permitting

 Traffic impacts/detours

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 street during construction hours (7am – 7pm).  The road will be closed to all through traffic and only open for local residents.   

In order to provide the best possible asphalt surface, and for the safety of the workers, the street will be closed to ALL traffic during the placement of the second and FINAL layer of asphalt surface, and for a few hours after completion until the pavement has sufficiently cooled.  The exact paving schedule is not known at this time, so please watch for progress updates on the Village web site, the activity of the asphalt paving crew and vehicles, and signs posted on the street closure (barricades). In order to minimize any potential damage to the new asphalt surface, we ask your cooperation to restrict your vehicular travel until the barricades are pulled back and the street is again open to traffic.

Traffic impacts/detours

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 street during construction hours (7am – 7pm).  The streets 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.   

In order to provide the best possible asphalt surface, and for the safety of the workers, the street will be closed to ALL traffic during the placement of the second and FINAL layer of asphalt surface, and for a few hours after completion until the pavement has sufficiently cooled.  The exact paving schedule is not known at this time, so please watch for progress updates on the Village web site, the activity of the asphalt paving crew and vehicles, and signs posted on the street closure (barricades).

County Highway M - Oncken Rd to STH 113 
(Click here for map)

Project Information

 

Dane County has contracted with KL Engineering to initiate the environmental and design phases for improvements proposed to CTH M from Oncken Rd to STH 113 in Dane County. The existing roadway is highly congested, especially during weekday commuter travel times. Residential and commercial development is planned along and near the corridor, traffic volumes are expected to increase along with congestion and potential safety issues.

KL Engineering will be investigating a range of options for improving the safety and capacity of CTH M, which may include a 4-lane expansion alternative. Bike lanes, shared-use facilities and transit routes are being considered throughout the length of this project. Improvements to several intersections and new bridges or expansions to existing structures is also anticipated. The City of Middleton, Village of Waunakee and Town of Westport are also providing input in the project design.

 

Project development is currently underway. Public Involvement Meetings are expected in the Fall of 2018 and the Spring and Summer of 2019. Final design will begin after this phase of the project is completed. Construction has yet not been scheduled.

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE PROJECTS

Chip Seal

Chip Sealing



The Village will be chip sealing several streets to prolong the life of the roadways. For a map 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 Aaron Jahncke, Village Engineer at (608) 849-6469, or by email at ajahncke@waunakee.com .
