Work along Highway 50 on Paddock Lake water system to begin next week

Work is expected to begin next week along Highway 50 on the Paddock Lake water system project.

The work along Highway 50 will be to install a main that that will connect the village’s east side water system with wells west of Highway 83 that will serve development in that area. Here’s a rundown on the project from the village:

Paddock Lake Water Utility District, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Globe Contractors will begin installing a municipal water main adjacent to State Highway 50 beginning the week of September 16, 2019. The purpose of this water main extension is to interconnect the Village’s existing East side water system to the existing West side water system and deliver safe drinking water along with fire protection hydrants to Village businesses and Westosha Central High School adjacent to State Highway 50. Only those properties adjacent to 5TH 50 and new residential development located west of STH 83 will be required to connect to the new water system. existing homes not adjacent to STH 50 will not be required to connect to municipal water. Project Scope: The project scope includes installing a 12-inch water main under existing pedestrian sidewalks along State Highway 50 from the corner of 236th Ave. west to State Highway. The project will include new fire hydrants along the route and water service lines for homes and businesses on Highway 50. The project will also include connection and activation of the West side water system providing water service to businesses in the intersection of Brass Ball Corners. All disturbed driveways, Sidewalks, streets, and lawn areas will be restored upon
completion. The public and users of State Highway 50 can expect to see lane closures along Highway 50 adjacent to the construction project. Early in the project (Mid- September) the south end of 236th Ave. at Highway 5O will be closed to all traffic for 2 to 3 days. Detours signs will be prominently displayed to route traffic to CTH K and State Highway 75. Construction Project timeline: The project is expected to begin the third week in September with completion in the spring of 2020.
