MSD's contractor has completed street restoration work on Claytonia as well as the majority of concrete work on Wise and Woodland Avenue.  All concrete work on Wise and Woodland should be completed the week of 6/18.  Asphalt surface on woodland to follow soon after.  Driveway and street restoration will begin on Warner Avenue the week of 6/18.  Storm sewer installation on Arch Terrace will begin on 6/18.  Traffic will be changed to two-way traffic from both entrances off Boland during this work.  The last street to get storm sewer work will be on Hoover Avenue and will begin late June or early July.  All restoration work shall be completed in August.

April 12th, 2018 Update:

MSD's contractor has resurfaced Edward Terrace and that street is complete and reopened.  They will be back filling curb and replacing grass soon.

They are currently removing and replacing the concrete base on Ralph Terrace and will replace asphalt surface once concrete is cured in a couple weeks.

Fred Luth is finishing up storm sewer work on Gissler Avenue and will be replacing concrete base and asphalt surface within in a couple weeks.

Once Ralph Terrace is restored and completed, the contract will start installing storm sewer on Claytonia between Wise and Warner Avenue.

March 13th, 2018 Update:

MSD's contractor has nearly completed all of the storm and sanitary sewer work for Edward and Ralph Terrace.  They have completed the concrete base for the east half of Edward Terrace and will start restoration work for the southern west half of Edwards Terrace this week.  Once the concrete base has cured on both sides they will lay the 2" asphalt surface.  Restoration to Ralph Terrace should start by late March.


September 29, 2017 Update:

MSD's contractor for the West Wise project contacted the City today after their two-month break that they will be back in town on Monday 10/3 to start construction for the new storm sewer on Boland between Wise Avenue and Brookline Terrace.  Boland will be closed between Wise and Brookline starting Monday and the detour plan here.  The detour will consist of Wise to Moorlands to Brookline and back to Boland.  Today they hand delivered the attached detour to all affected residents on Boland.  

August 21st, 2017 Update:
Last week it was confirmed that due to MSD's contractor busy schedule, this project will be delayed until early November 2017.  A bit of private property work may still continue, but no roadwork until later this year.  The contractor has until June 2018 to complete the project and sees no issues in doing so.  

July 26th, 2017 Update:
Things are moving along with the MSD West Wise project. Last week, after underground utilities were located, detours were placed for through traffic. The contractor has installed the storm sewers near Boland and Gissler and is working their way north.  Weather-permitting, storm sewer installation should be complete this week with restoration work beginning next week.

Friday, June 2, 2017 Update:

The MSD West Wise project is currently under way with Fred Luth and Sons selected as the prime contractor.  The contractor started potholing utilities around the project area streets where storm sewers will be installed in April and that will last through June.  The contractor has started making improvements on private property to the nearly 300 residences that will receive storm water improvements in the way of disconnecting downspouts from sanitary sewer lateral or installing a private storm sewer lateral that will be connected to the new public storm sewer within the street in the future.  The project schedule calls for the contractor to begin installing the public storm sewers within the street areas labeled blue on the map around the week of July 10th.  The project has a 500-day deadline and they are estimating final restoration for the project to be completed by spring of 2018.  Please call or email Chris Boyd, Director of Public Works at 314-655-3670 or with any questions or concerns about the project.
