Kenosha County announces the beginning of work on County Trunk Highway “G” (30th Avenue) between 18th Street and 22nd Street in the City of Kenosha. The project will begin on Monday April 8, 2013.
The segment of 30th Avenue under construction will be closed to through traffic. However, the intersection of 30th Avenue and 18th Street will remain open to traffic. The detour route for all traffic, except trucks, is 18th Street – 22nd Avenue – 27th Street. The detour route for all trucks is 18th Street – 22nd Avenue – Washington Road. All trucks are prohibited from travel on 27th Street between 30th Avenue and 22nd Avenue. Access to all residents, businesses and farms along the closed segment of 30th Avenue will be maintained. Motorists are advised to use caution when driving in the vicinity of this project and on the detour routes.
The contractor for the project is Zignego Company, of Waukesha Wisconsin. The contract amount for the project is $1,634,344. This is the second phase of a two year project improving 30th Avenue to current design standards. The project will be similar to the first phase of the project located on 30th Avenue just north of 18th Street that was completed in 2012. This year, the existing two lane road will also be converted to a four lane urban street including curb & gutter, a multi-use path on the east side of the road, sidewalk on the west side of road, street lights and extensive storm sewer facilities
The estimated completion date of the project is July 8, 2013.
