Project Description

South 60th Street Reconstruction, West Lincoln Avenue to North City Limits, City of West Allis, WI

OES engineers prepared urban roadway design, traffic control staging, and right-of-way plats and managed public involvement for the reconstruction of 1.57 miles of South 60th Street. OES staff provided engineering services including survey, right-of-way plat, traffic control and construction staging plans, storm sewer design, street lighting and traffic signal plans, railroad coordination, Phase 1 and 2 hazardous materials investigation, environmental documentation, reports, agency and utility coordination, public involvement, soils investigations, pavement design report, and PS&E submittal.

OES engineers recommended upgraded signal timing and construction of a cul-de-sac on one of the side streets to improve traffic flow for up to 18,700 cars per day.

We coordinated with local business owners to develop plans for multi-stage construction activities to minimize the construction impacts on the small businesses. OES designers evaluated and adjusted vertical profiles, pavement cross slopes, and terrace slopes to minimize construction impacts to existing landscaping and to buildings that had minimal offsets from the right-of-way.
