U.S. 151 - Main St. Interchange Construction Update for the Week of Sept. 12th (City of Sun Prairie Engineering Department)

The following activities are scheduled for the week of Sept. 12th:  
DOT Project:
·         Finish storm sewer installation.
·         Grading and placing crushed aggregate base course(CABC).
·         Concrete pavement possibly Friday and Saturday.

City Project:
·         Storm sewer installation on O'Keeffe Ave
·         Grading and placing CABC on Main Street.
·         Concrete pavement possibly on Friday and Saturday.

Traffic control:
·         Traffic control will remain the same all of next week.

Truck Traffic Advisory: 

·         It is currently very difficult for large trucks to make a left turn onto Main Street from the southbound 151 ramp. These trucks may want to either 1) turn right and go around the Round-a-bout to go east bound on Main Street, or 2) they could go up to the 151-CTH C - Reiner Rd. interchange and turn around to head northbound on 151 and exit on to Main Street. This right turn is much easier for large trucks.

Traffic control will remain the same for this week.  Note that there are no turns onto Main Street from O'Keeffe Ave.

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 continue to slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment at all times in the construction zone.

The next business meeting is scheduled for September 22nd at 9:00 a.m.
