The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage district is currently in the design phase of this project. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid- 2021 and conclude in early 2023 at an estimated cost of $15.7 million. The project will impact the Edgewood corridor from N. Maryland Avenue to the Milwaukee River.
A presentation was made to the Shorewood Village Board on August 3, 2020 which provided an overview of the project, presented the preliminary engineering and design concept, outlined the preliminary alignment and construction approach, identified the project construction impact areas and reviewed the project's public outreach plan.
On July 6, 2021 the Shorewood Village Board approved the final Southeast Area Combined Sewer Improvements route and directed the project engineer to begin final design. The project scope includes the installation over of 6,000 lineal feet of sewer pipe ranging in size from 12 to 78-inches, watermain replacement and restoration or reconstruction of impacted roadway. The improvements will be constructed in three phases beginning in 2023. The total estimated cost for all phases is estimated at approximately $13.5 million.
