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.
MMSD Chapter 3 Management, Operations, and Maintenance of Tributary Sewers requires the disconnection of downspouts within the combined sewer service area by January 1, 2025. The Village's Public Works Committee is scheduled to review and discuss a draft program on January 20, 2021.
The proposed project scope includes the installation over of 11,000 lineal feet of sewer pipe, some watermain replacement and restoration or reconstruction of impacted roadway as noted on the conceptual illustration at right. Final engineering analysis may alter pipe sizes or routes. The improvements are anticipated to be constructed in three phases beginning in : 2023. The total estimated cost for all phases is approximately $22 million.
