Main Street work continues this week with sidewalk installation

Light is expected to shine on part of Main Street in Belgium this week, although Ozaukee County remains in the dark about a permit to extend storm sewer under the railroad tracks.

Streetlights are scheduled to be installed from Beech Street west to the railroad crossing as part of the $6.9 million Main Street reconstruction project, Director of Public Works Dan Birenbaum said.

In addition, crews are expected to complete installing sidewalk this week on the same portion of the project.

Next week, curb is slated to be installed on the west side of the project. Crews will begin at the village limits and work east, Birenbaum said.

Recent discussion with the Union Pacific Railroad hasn’t produced any progress toward receiving a permit for work under the tracks, Birenbaum said.

Motorists are encouraged to take the detour route. The detour route runs from Highway LL south to A, then to Highway 57 and back to Highway D.

The project is slated to be completed Sept. 28.
