Steeplechase Phase 2 - 2019

Thank you all for your patience during this construction project.
Construction is moving along as expected. The road crew is finishing up with some additional undercuts that were needed to ensure a solid base for paving. This is scheduled to continue into Saturday, July 27th. Binder paving will begin on Monday, July 29th assuming the weather permits this work. If it is raining or we receive a lot of rain over the weekend, the paving may need to be delayed.
Final surface paving is scheduled for Friday, August 2nd.
Thank you for your continued patience.

As you may or may not be aware, the road construction project for Coachman Drive (Homestead Road to Deer Haven Drive), Crestview Drive, Deer Haven Drive, and Woodburn Court has been awarded to Payne & Dolan, Inc. As such, we have determined the contractor will be starting construction the week of June 10, 2019. The beginning stages of this work will seem intermittent as minor utility work is being completed and curb sections are being replaced. This work will last approximately 1 to 2 weeks depending on weather conditions. The road pavement will remain intact for the duration of this work, but there will be equipment and barricades/barrels in the areas of curb replacement and utility work which will impede traffic. Some driveway access may be limited for up to 3 days while the concrete is curing. If this is the case, we will work directly with the property owner with notification and alternate accesses.
The roadways will have a full depth mill which will remove all the existing asphalt. The pavement milling is currently scheduled to begin on June 19, 2019 with the exact schedule depending on the Utility work described above. Once the pavement is removed, access will be maintained to your driveways on the gravel base. Milling operations will be followed by undercuts (digging out bad, soft stone base areas and replacing them with appropriate backfill to support the new pavement) in the full depth milling areas. This operation is then followed by grading operations to re-establish the crown (pitch) on the roadway. These operations will take approximately 1 to 1 ½ weeks depending on weather conditions and the amount of undercuts.
The new asphalt will be placed in 2 layers for the full depth milled areas. The surface (finish) asphalt course will follow immediately upon completion of the binder course for all areas. During this time, access to your driveways may be limited for short periods (perhaps 30 minutes to 1 hour) while the asphalt is placed and cooled. The time to cool the asphalt is weather dependent so your access limit time may vary. The contractor and our inspector will do their best to get access to your properties as soon as possible.
We will have full time inspection on this project. The onsite inspector will be Hunter Reuteman, Ruekert Mielke. He may be reached at 414-526-1552 for construction related questions. You may also contact the City at 262-691-0804 with any questions or concerns.
SPRINKLERS & INVISIBLE DOG FENCE
Finally, if you have any invisible fencing or an irrigation system (or any other impediments underground) located within the City’s right of way (typically from the curb towards your home approximately 16’), you must mark the locations of the these facilities. If you do not mark the location and it is damaged by the Contractor, it will be your responsibility to repair the damage. If it is marked and damaged by the Contractor, the Contractor will be responsible for the repair.
