Wauwatosa Avenue Construction

Hi there – you’re subscribed to the Wauwatosa construction list. We will be sending updates about Wauwatosa, Melrose, and Rogers Avenue construction on a bi-weekly basis to this list as well as updates about other construction projects as needed. You can reply to this email with questions.

COVID-19 and Construction

At this time, construction work will continue. Please visit our webpage related to COVID-19 and city services for updates.

Timeline for the next two weeks

Work on the water main continues on Wauwatosa Avenue from Milwaukee to Warren Avenue. A second crew is also working on storm sewer on Wauwatosa Avenue from Hillcrest Drive to Woodland Avenue. Work on the Rogers Avenue water main will begin the week of March 16.

We Energies is working on gas services in the next two weeks. They will be transferring service to the new lines. We Energies will coordinate the communication with property owners when there is a disruption to gas service. This might be as little as 2-4 hours.

Local traffic only

We’ve put up a number of barricades and signs related to this construction project. The area is only open to local traffic. Please use the detour routes of North Avenue, Mayfair, and Bluemound.

We’ve also worked with the school district on safe walking routes to school. Please avoid walking on Wauwatosa Avenue, as it is a construction zone. Use side streets for walking in the neighborhood.
