South Rock Avenue Construction Update

Project Update 8/20/16

The asphalt road surface has been removed, however we uncovered bad base material in the southernmost 550ft (from the church south). In order to have a suitable surface to pave, the top 18 inches of soil will be replaced with fabric and base material. This means access will be restricted during working hours from the time we excavate in front of your property until we put the base material down. We are starting on the north end of the project just past the church parking lot and will be going south to Maple. As such the properties just south of the church will be impacted the longest. We will start Monday morning and should finish building the road base on Wednesday or Thursday weather permitting. 

While it is more likely that the curb will not be poured until the week of the 25th, curb and gutter could be poured as early as the end of the week. 

Please contact me if there are any special arrangements that need to be made for access to your property. 

If you have any questions please contact Sarah Grainger, City Engineer at 608-637-7154 ext. 20 or email
