Bay Settlement Road –The contractor has completed the grading operations and the storm water pond has been shaped.  The contractor needs to complete some storm sewer work on the south end of the project once the gas main is moved.

The curb and gutter contractor is tentatively schedule to come in the end of the week.  They will be pouring curb and gutter on the north half of the project while WPS continues to move the gas main.  Once the gas main is moved on the south end, the storm sewer will be finished and the remaining curb and gutter will be installed.

Week of April 26 Bay Settlement Road and Van Lanen Road Reconstruction Weekly Updated

Contractor continues to make progress with the rock trenching.   They have completed the northern portion and will be moving the trencher to the south end by Bay Settlement Court.   They plan to start on Monday at Bay Settlement Court and trench north.   They estimate that the trenching will be completed by Tuesday. 

Another crew is installing storm sewer on the north end.  This will continue until all the storm sewer is installed on the north end and then they will move to the south end.   Basically, they are following behind the same route as the trencher. 

You may have noticed that we did not begin any blasting of the pond this past week.  The contractor modified his schedule and they will not be blasting the pond for a couple of weeks now.   Hopefully he does not make me a liar again like he did last week.

Weekly Updated
Week of April 19
We have had one week of construction and we have had a few hiccups, but I think we have most
resolved and hopefully things should go a little smoother this week.
We made a change to the storm sewer location to help get traffic and school buses past the construction
area which required us to take out the mailboxes sooner then we had anticipated.
This week the contractor will continue rock trenching from about 3377 Bay Settlement Road heading
south and should get to about the old Town Hall site by the end of the week. Another crew will be
alternating between installing sanitary and water laterals and storm sewer from the north end working
south. Finally, by the end of the week the contractor is hoping to start drilling and blasting for the storm
water pond on the south end at the corner of Bay Settlement Road and Bay Settlement Court.
With two to three crews working on the road, it may appear that you will not be able to get past the work
area or you may feel trapped between them. If you need to get through where they are working, pull up in
the vicinity of the crew and they will move to let you through. Be aware that they may need to move
things for you to get through so it may take a minute or two, but they will let you through or come and talk
to you if there is a longer delay. We are also working with the school buses and garbage collection to get
them through.
If you have any questions please contact Scott Brosteau, Mead & Hunt, town engineer at (920)593-6860

Bay Settlement Road and Van Lanen Road Reconstruction
Weekly Updated
Week of April 12
The project is starting this week with the contractor moving in and setting up traffic control, installing erosion control and starting the rock excavation on Bay Settlement Road.
The contractor will be moving in the rock trencher, assembling it and starting on the north end trenching and slowly working south for the next 2 to 3 weeks. Falcon Drilling and Blasting will also be moving in this week. They will start on the north end drilling holes for the sewer and water laterals. The laterals will be drilled and then the rock either picked or pulled with a backhoe, no blasting will be done for the sewer and water laterals.
Mailboxes and mail service will not change until after the storm sewer is in. The road will be closed to through traffic and there will be times when you will not be able to get past the area the contractor is work at during the day. The contractor will try and provide one lane past the work area after hours.
If you have any questions please contact Scott Brosteau, Mead & Hunt, town engineer at (920)593-6860
