State Street Project
Marshfield Utilities is replacing buried underground lines that were installed in the early 70s and are near end of life. Most of the facilities being replaced are in and along backyards on private property. Underground light circuits in the area and few road crossing will take place with minimal impact. As part of this project, we are also converting 525 feet of overhead power line to underground power line along the Wildwood Trail west of Adams Avenue. This will eliminate the need to maintain the required clearnace around energized lines by trimming trees. In time, this piece of trail will be able to regain a more naturalized look and feel.
The east third of this project began in 2018 and is complete. The remainder started in August 2019 and now in 2020 is nearing completion. We are currently landscaping. When that is finished this project will be wrapped up.
We have several projects in progress on the following streets:
1. Cleveland Street from Doege Street to Central Avenue: This project is in progress. Water main is complete from Central to Sprucet. Contractor continues to work westward towards Grant Tower.
2. 26th Street from Maywood Avenue to Washington Avenue shas been completed from a water main perspective. The City will be following behind us to do some street work and re-ditching.
3. Galvin Avenue has been completed
4. Downwind Drive from Central Avenue to Cherry Avenue is still on the horizon. We are looking at sometime in September after the soybean field gets harvested.
We will also try to do some valve & hydrant repairs during the construction season. Those will be single day activities and we do not currently have a schedule set for those.
