Total Estimated Cost
DAAR is providing design services for a 1-mile urban reconstruct along WIS 83 from East Monroe Avenue to WIS 60, with intersection improvements at the East Monroe Avenue/WIS 83 intersection in Washington County, WI. This three-party contract between DAAR, The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), and the City of Hartford is located in the historic district of the City of Hartford.
Sensitive areas include two historic properties and Sawyer Park. As the project progresses, challenges include minimizing impacts near these sensitive areas, coordinating the programmatic 4(f) for the City Park, extensive utility coordination, and coordinating the Plat. This project also includes new storm sewer; evaluation of vision triangle obstructions; additional turn lanes and signal upgrades at Monroe Avenue; decorative lighting just south of WIS 60; pedestrian/bicyclist accommodations with possible colored concrete crosswalks; and Transportation Management Plan. Public involvement is important to the success of this project with all the sensitive issues, project location, as well as coordination of all project activities.
