ASHWAUBENON – A bid of $815,706 from MCC, Inc., for asphalt paving in the village, was approved last month by the Ashwaubenon village board.
Public Works Director Doug Martin said the village received two bids for the annual resurfacing, with MCC the lowest and under the total budget of $825,000.
In addition to designated roads, Martin said this year’s contract also includes paving for the Aldon Station trail project near where a bridge is proposed across Ashwaubenon Creek and resurfacing village hall’s west parking lot.
Gov. Tony Evers announced June 28 the village was awarded a $100,000 Wisconsin Coastal Management grant to construct an ADA-accessible bike and pedestrian bridge with a fishing bump-out to connect the Ashwaubomay River Trail from Aldon Station south across Ashwaubenon Creek to Ashwaubomay Park.
This year’s street repaving includes: 2,600 feet of Orlando Drive between Marlee Lane and Ridge Road; 1,150 feet of April Lane between Orrie Lane and True Lane; 2,450 feet of Ramada Way between Oneida Street and Parkview Road; 3,280 feet of Ashwaubenon Street between South Ridge Road and Commodity Lane; 2,600 feet of Parkview Road between South Ridge Road and Commodity Lane; 3,000 feet of Contract Drive between South Ridge Road and Commodity Lane; 350 feet of South Ridge Road between Contract Drive and Label Lane; 420 feet of Glen Road between Leona Drive and Santa Barbara Drive; 600 feet of Lumber Lane between Finch Lane and Circle Drive; 730 feet of Skylark Lane between Lumber Lane and Timber Lane; and 1,150 feet of Otto Court from Ken Drive to the north end.
Martin said Ashwaubenon has approximately 100 miles of streets with about 3.5-4 miles of road being paved this year.
“We’ve been building that (paving) fund up, trying to get (the village’s streets repaved) on a 20-year cycle, if you will,” he said. “Like each year during budget (time), if we’re able to, we bump that up to about (another) $25,000 a year, again, if we’re able to.”
Martin said the village is presently keeping up with fixing its roadways, but he expects in the future there will be a greater number of roads in need of repaving.
