Construction on North Spring Street from West Maple Avenue to West Mackie Street will begin Monday morning, closing the road to traffic through August.
North Spring will open back up by Sept. 1 and the full construction project will be complete by Sept. 15.
A detour route will be provided along Maple, North Center Street, and Mackie. According to a letter provided to property owners in the construction zone, access for residents, postal service, and garbage trucks will be maintained “to the greatest extent practicable” during construction.
Closing property access is allowed for up to two weeks to allow for concrete to finish curing. Should that happen, property owners will receive a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to driveway closure.
The road project will widen North Spring to allow for new bikes lanes in both directions and a center turn lane. The work will also include removing existing pavement, installing infrastructure, new concrete for pavement, curbs, and sidewalks, and new markings, lighting and signage.
The portion of the construction between Mackie and Fourth Streets, where the middle school is, will not start until June 4 to allow for school to conclude for the year.
Businesses and other locations that will be along the construction path include Blue Boy, Boost Mobile, the Beaver Dam Community Theater, and the library. The library recommends that patrons use the parking lot entrance on Third Street.
Advance Construction of Green Bay was awarded the contract for the work by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
