KSingh was hired by WisDOT to manage the reconstruction of Appleton Avenue from W. Capitol Drive to N. 107th Street (Approximately 4.4 miles). The project includes 7 complex intersections (76th street, Congress Street, Hampton Ave., Grandtosa Street, 91st street, Carman Street and North 107th Street). The project is comprised of base patching and resurfacing for the majority of the project length.
The scope of services included roadway reconstruction, ramp and bridge/deck raise and replacements, sidewalk repair, new sidewalk installation, and deck overlays for two structures over the Menomonee River.
The biggest challenge for this project was staging. KSingh conducted permanent lane closures for the southern section, detours for the ramps, and constructed crossovers for the northern section. Traffic control was extended into the interchange with USH 45. The majority of the traffic staging was adjusted in the field to accommodate the convenience and safety of the public.
This project required significant coordination with the City of Milwaukee. A second project ID was added to the contract as a request from City of Milwaukee for CUC duct work from Timmerman Airport Cross over to 91st Street.
Miscellaneous tasks included tree installation, manhole adjustment and sidewalk repair. Many of these issues were still unsettled, and the construction team had to resolve them during construction. As a part of the project, the construction team encountered contaminated soil in CUC duct work. As a result, 200 tons of contaminated soil were removed from the project.
