Road Construction/Closings

Fall Paving Project to begin October 7, 2019

The 2019 Fall Paving Project, which is Nebel St. from Mary St. through Martha’s Ln, is expected to begin on Monday, October 7, 2019 and is expected to be completed by late October.

The contractor is anticipated to begin mobilizing into the area on Monday with work expected to start thereafter. These are anticipated dates and changes may be incurred depending on weather and availability of crews. 

The road will remain open to local traffic and access to properties is anticipated to be maintained for the duration of the project. However, given the work required to complete the project, there may be short term closures to properties with minimal notice given. As a result, the City will be lifting parking restrictions on Mary Street, Welsby Avenue, and Martha’s Lane. Please see the attached map for more information.

The contractor is scheduled to remove the existing pavement and maintain access to properties over the existing roadway base. Once pavements are removed, the contractor will phase the work when building the new roadway to minimize disturbance to properties along the corridor. As work progresses and the need arises, additional mailings will be sent.

At this time, your garbage and recyclable pick-up will not change. The contractor has identified that sufficient access is anticipated to be available to allow the use of the automatic collection trucks. At some point, should the required work not provide the access needed for regular garbage collection, residents will receive a separate notice with additional instructions.

Mailboxes along the corridor are not anticipated to be affected by construction. Should the work require relocation of mailboxes or require that temporary mailboxes be installed, the City will coordinate such work with property owners and the United States Postal Service.

Please direct any additional questions you may have to The City Engineering Department at 715-346-1561 or e-mail to dpw@stevenspoint.com. Our department hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Thank you for your anticipated patience and cooperation.

Scott Beduhn, PE

Director of Public Works
