Waukesha West Bypass

2017 West Waukesha Bypass (Meadowbrook Road) Reconstruction Project Update

October 13, 2017

The contractor this week completed the pouring of the outside shoulder and curb and gutter along the new northbound lanes of Meadowbrook Rd. They also began the setup for the median and side road curb and gutter, and started pouring some of those sections as well. The contractor also completed the final pavement removal along Lancaster Dr., and early in the week the contractor was able to make more progress within Meadowview Park and the construction/grading of the bio-filtration basins. Three of the basins have been completed with the storm sewer and engineered soil placed, and the remaining basins are close to being final graded.

Next week the contractor will be completing the median and side road intersection curb and gutter placement, as well as, pouring the concrete pavement for the turn lanes and the Woodridge/Lancaster intersections. During this paving work the contractor will also be final grading for the multi-use path on the east side of Meadowbrook Rd., and are planning to pave the asphalt path mid-late next week. Depending on the schedule of other concrete work, the contractor may begin the curb and gutter, sidewalk, and driveway work along Lancaster Dr., and prepare for the final asphalt paving on Lancaster Dr. Once the intersection and turn lane pavement and curb and gutter are complete, the contractor may look to adjust the traffic control, and begin their work at the Rolling Ridge Dr. intersection. This may occur towards the end of next week, but I will send out a follow up email if this is the definite schedule, and inform everyone of the specific timing of the traffic control change.

The contractor will also be looking to continue the work within Meadowview Park next week, but this work will be weather dependent. With dry weather, the contractor will look to complete the grading and constructing of all of the bio-filters except for one. Early in the week the current traffic control, and access closures along the City portion of Meadowbrook Rd. (150’ north of Northview Rd. to Rolling Ridge Dr.) will remain the same, and if there are any proposed changes I will send out a mid-week update.


Thank you for your continued cooperation with this reconstruction project, and If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact me.
