Main Street work stretches into the new year

Main Street is clear and open to traffic, a welcome sight after its reconstruction from Highway LL west to the village limits spanned two years, which the state required if it was to pay 80% of the project’s cost, but the work isn’t done just yet. Some sod needs to be laid and some more gravel needs to be added in a couple of places, Director of Public Works Dan Birenbaum said. “It’s as done as it’s going to be,” he said of the road work. The village paid $4.2 million for the $6.9 million project, including decorative street lighting for $601,000. The second phase of the project, slated to be done in September, took longer to complete due to two elements. Ozaukee County waited months for a permit from the Union Pacific Railroad to do work near the railroad crossing, and Frontier Communications took four to six weeks to have wire delivered for splicing, Birenbaum said.
