151 Main Street Project Update - Week of July 11th (City of Sun Prairie Engineering Department)

Pending Work for Week of July 11th (NEW)

The following activities are scheduled for the week of July 11th:

Current traffic routes and controls should remain the same through August 4th.

Installation of new watermain will continue on the north side of Main Street.

Storm sewer installation will also be performed early in this week.

The contractor will also be working on construction of a retaining wall underneath the 151 overpass on the north side of Main St.

Grading for the northern lanes of Main St. and the new ramps north of Main St. will be completed, and crushed aggregate base course will be placed.

The northbound on-ramp and the southbound off-ramp will be closed to traffic starting on July 5th, and are scheduled to remain closed through the first week in August. The northbound off ramp from 151 to Main Street and the southbound on ramp from Main Street to 151 will remain open to traffic. Southbound traffic on 151 wanting to get to Main Street will be detoured to use either the STH 19/Windsor St. exit or the CTH C/Reiner Rd. exit. Similarly, Main Street traffic needing to access 151 North will be detoured to the STH 19/Windsor St. exit. Detour signage will be posted before the ramps are closed. In addtion, portable message boards are up and active, and will be updated regularly.

Persons travelling this route are advised that construction is likely to be occurring on Saturdays for the next several weeks. People are also strongly encouraged to slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment at all times in the construction zone.

Paving of temporary driveways to Hamilton Place off of Hart Rd. and Wal-Mart has been completed.

Temporary signals at the Clarmar Drive / Main Street intersection are operational as are the signals at the ramps east of STH 151. Signals at O'Keeffe have been removed.
