S.T.H. 32 RECONSTRUCTION
Village of Pulaski, WI
2014 WisDOT NE Region Outstanding Highway Construction Award for Excellence in Asphalt Paving
This project consisted of 1.4 miles of urban reconstruction through the Village of Pulaski, with about 0.3 miles of rural reconstruction north of the Village.
A significant portion of the project had to be completed very quickly to accommodate the annual Pulaski Polka Days event which draws tens of thousands of people to the Village. Due to the extremely cold winter and late spring, significant sanitary sewer and watermain work needed to be done concurrently with this project. During the first few weeks of the project, daily meetings were held with the contractors, engineers, and other utilities to ensure proper coordination of all work.
Constant consideration of safe access to the elementary school was also of the upmost importance, as the only access to and from the school for the children, faculty and parents was from within the work zone.
The project also included a box culvert extension and a box culvert replacement to accommodate the wider roadway corridor. A 10-ft wide multi-use path was constructed along STH 32 to connect the WDNR Mountain Bay Trail in two locations. In addition, the existing undersized storm sewer was replaced throughout the project.
