Ozaukee Press Staff

Boring at the railroad crossing is scheduled for next week on the Main Street reconstruction project in the Village of Belgium.

Director of Public Works Dan Birenbaum said boring prep will be done this week with boring slated to start on Monday.

After that, seven to 10 days of storm sewer work will be done. Then, the road will be excavated and curb and gutter work will be done.

Two more streetlights will be installed, one on each side of the railroad tracks.

That portion of the project was on hold for months while Ozaukee County waited for the Union Pacific Railroad to approve a permit to do work under the tracks.

The project’s completion date, once Sept. 28, is now at the end of November before Thanksgiving, Birenbaum said.

That will complete the entire project that began in 2016. Work was split into two phases over two years in order to secure funding from the state.

Travelers are urged to continue to take the detour route until the completion of the project. The route runs from Highway LL south to Highway A, then to Highway 57  and back to Highway D.
