Crews are continuing to work around the Main Street railroad crossing in the Village of Belgium.

Public Works Director Dan Birenbaum said the county hasn’t heard anything recently about its permit application to Union Pacific Railroad to run storm sewer underneath the tracks, but the project remains on schedule.

Crews completed excavation at Highway KW and Main Street and west to the railroad crossing, Birenbaum said.

Preparation for sidewalk installation is scheduled to be completed on Friday, with concrete to be poured next week on the east side of the crossing.

Bases for the new street lights are scheduled to be put in this week, Birenbaum said.

The project cost is $6.9 million. State and federal grants will pay 80% of the cost with the county and village splitting the remaining 20%. The Village Board in April unanimously approved borrowing $4.3 million for its portion of the Main Street reconstruction project. It is paying more than 10% because of upgraded street lights and burying power lines.
