Oconto Falls Project Update

The watermain and sanitary sewer is finished on STH 22/Chestnut Avenue from Highland Drive south to Columbia Street. The contractor completed some asphalt paving restoration and housekeeping activities are planned in this area today, tomorrow and next week. Access will be much improved except when crews are working during daylight hours.

Main Street from Cherry Street to Union Avenue is the final phase of the project. Watermain and sanitary sewer main work on Main Street has progressed well based on the poor construction weather that has occurred the last several weeks. The last of the sanitary sewer main and watermain went into the ground yesterday at the Union Avenue intersection. The new laterals for watermain and sanitary sewer have progressed from Cherry Street toward Union Avenue. Crews are anticipating to have the laterals completed from Cherry Street to Central Avenue on Monday and the remainder of laterals for Main Street next Wednesday or early in the first week of December. Pavement replacement will be follow immediately behind the replacement of the laterals. The schedule is to have all work completed by December 5th and housekeeping activities to be finalized shortly after.

The detour for STH 22 traffic will continue to be Highland Drive. Travelers should plan alternate routes to access destinations near the construction area. This construction schedule is weather dependent and may change slightly. With the closing of STH 22/Main Street from Cherry Street to Union Avenue, it is recommended that traffic approaching from the west use the cross streets as much as possible to approach destinations along Main Street. Traffic from the east will have access to Chestnut Avenue from Highland Avenue.

Thank you for your patience during the construction project as the contractor is making progress, but a few more weeks persist for the project. Please feel free to email me or call me at 920-366-0970 with any questions or concerns. In addition, if you know any businesses or residents along STH 22 that do not receive this update, please forward their email information to me and I will add them to the list for future updates.
