151 Main Street Project Update Week of October 10th, 2011 (City of Sun Prairie Engineering Department)

The following activities are scheduled for the week of Oct. 10th:  
City Project:
  • Construction of remaining sidewalks and place curb & gutter.
  • Switch traffic on O'Keeffe Ave to east side to complete west side construction.
  • Place topsoil and restoration in various locations.
  • ATC will be placing new steel utility pole on O'Keeffe Ave near Stark Motors.
DOT Project:
  • Construction of remaining sidewalks and place curb & gutter.
  • Switch traffic on the 151 northbound off ramp and the 151 Southbound on ramp to complete other half of ramps.
  • Place topsoil and restoration behind curb & gutter.
All traffic control on Main Street will remain the same on both projects.

Truck Traffic Advisory: 

It is currently very difficult for large trucks to make a left turn onto Main Street from the SB 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 NB on 151and exit on to Main Street. This right turn is much easier for large trucks.

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.   

In addition, vehicles traveling westbound on W. Main Street. and wanting to access businesses along O'Keeffe Avenue must turn at the Clarmar Drive intersection.  Access to O'Keeffe Avenue for westbound vehicles does not exist west of Clarmar Drive.    

The next business meeting is scheduled for October 20th at 9:00 a.m.
