2016 Sanitary Sewer Improvements - East Tosa 
In the ongoing effort to improve sanitary sewer performance the contractor will be conducting limited sanitary sewer replacement or repairs in the East Tosa area. 

Sewer Improvment MAp
The project is scheduled to start July 25th and be complete by October 28, 2016. While working on the open cut trench the street will be closed during daytime hours for 1 to 2 days, weather permitting. The trench area will be barricaded with the asphalt restoration to follow.
Following the open trench work the contractor, Insituform and Great Lakes will be performing trench-less work with lining and grouting of the sanitary system. The disruption for this work will be minimal and will not involve street closures.

If there any questions please contact Maggie Anderson in the Engineering Department at 414-479-3444.

Zoo Interchange Project
The project is now in the fifth year of the seven year construction schedule. The first years were focused on ‘building the box’ around the Zoo Interchange and is complete. These improvements to the local roads are seeing the increased traffic as various ramp closures and detours route traffic off the interstate as work continues on Core Phase 1 and 2 of the Zoo Interchange.
Projects underway in Wauwatosa are:

    • Zoo Interchange ramp, I-94 West to I-894/US 45 South closed until fall 2017. See WisDOT flyer.
    • Wisconsin Avenue Bridge over US 45 is closed for reconstruction with the completion scheduled for late spring 2017.
