33rd Avenue resurfacing project – 52nd Street to 55th Street
A public information meeting was held on Thursday night in the Kenosha Municipal Building for residents in the 11th District. The meeting had to do with the 33rd Avenue resurfacing project. Phase I runs from 52nd Street to 55th Street. Scott Gordon, alderperson of the district, organized the meeting. Civil engineer, Clement Abongwa, civil engineer from the Department of Public Works, was also present to help answer residents’ questions. About twenty residents attended.
Information provided by Abongwa:
The plans on display during the public information meeting illustrated the sidewalk , curb, gutter, and driveway approach that will be removed and replaced in the project. The plans also show the limits of the project and the properties that will be impacted by the project.
Tentatively, work is scheduled to start on July 9, 2012, but the contractor plans to start mobilizing next week and may start doing some preliminary work as early as next week.
Property owners will be assessed for replaced damaged sidewalks, except when the sidewalk is damaged by tree roots from trees on the parkway. The homeowners on 32nd and 33rd Avenues will not be assessed for driveway approaches because the city will be changing the grades on the street. However, property owners on 60th Avenue and 27th Avenue will be assessed for replaced damaged driveway approaches.
