Preliminary Alternatives

Three reconstruction alternatives are being evaluated by the City of Muskego and include the options listed below and the associated .pdfs below.  Please take the time to look at the options and provide input by emailing  Mike Paulos, City Engineer

  1. Full reconstruction of the roadway as an urban section with concrete curb and gutter, storm sewer, concrete driveway approaches, six foot wide pathway on the east side of the roadway and installation of an asphalt pavement for the road. The width of the roadway would be 28 feet from the face of curb to face of curb.  Temporary grading easements may be needed from some property owners.
  2. Full reconstruction of the roadway with rural type ditches and the construction of a six foot wide pathway along the east side of the roadway on the backside of the ditches. The pavement width would be 26 feet wide with 3 foot stone shoulders on both sides.  This alternative would require property acquisition in many areas to allow for the installation of ditches and the pathway. This option was not fully designed because during the initial design it was determined that a large amount of right-of-way would be needed.  
  3. Reconstruction of the roadway using a hybrid approach by placing curb and gutter where required to stay within the existing right of way and using a rural section where it works best for storm water conveyance or where curb and gutter cannot be used because of grading challenges. The widths of roadway section would follow those noted above. This alternative would include a six foot wide pathway on the east side of the roadway.  By utilizing this alternative we would be able to keep the vast majority of improvements within the existing right of way with only temporary grading easements being needed from some property owners.
