2017 Century Avenue Re-construction Project
2017 Public Works Improvement Projects -
Century Avenue from Second Street to Woodland Drive
RG Huston, Cottage Grove, Wisconsin
● Work remaining in Phase 5 - Woodland Drive to Eighth St.
The contractors are finishing a small amount of concrete work, plus some new street lighting and landscaping. Mailboxes will be re-installed after the landscaping work is complete. The temporary mailbox station will remain in-use until after the permanent mailboxes have been reset. More information will be posted on the mailbox station. Residents and Endres Manufacturing employees, customers, and deliveries should continue to enter and exit to the south on Century Avenue.
● Work in Phase 4/1 – Eighth Street to Fifth Street
The street (base) has been rebuilt, and the contractors are installing the new concrete (curb & gutter, and sidewalks). Then, the street will be fine graded for the placement of the first layer of asphalt pavement. The contractors will be transitioning to the north into phases 2 and 3 to complete the work from Fifth Street to Second Street. We anticipate this transition to begin the week of July 3rd, weather permitting. This work will be completed from the south to the north, and will require additional traffic control and traffic route changes. Please watch for directional signage.
The local detour to get around the construction is as follows: to the west using Woodland Drive – Holiday Drive - Fifth Street – Klein Drive, to access businesses on Century Avenue and Main Street; and to the east using Woodland Drive - Simon Crestway - South Street, to access the schools.
There is also a regional detour for vehicles that do not have a destination in the Village. The detour to the east will be from CTH Q to STH 113 using CTH K - CTH M - STH 113. The regional detour will remain be in-place throughout the project. The Regional Detour Plans are available on the Village web site. Please be aware, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, STH 19 repairs from Dorn Drive to STH 12 are now underway.
Please contact the WisDOT for more information.
Project information such as construction plans, weekly construction updates, detour routes, construction newsletters and flyers are available for viewing on the Village web site, under the Engineering Department section.
