A crumbling intersection near the school, an improved bridge in a park and new water meters throughout the city are among a long list of upcoming/ongoing projects in Green Lake.
City Public Works Director Glen McCarty shared a sheet of priorities at a recent Green Lake Common Council meeting.
One of them is reconstructing the deteriorating intersection at Mill and North streets, near the north side of the school. The pavement is uneven and badly cracked.
“And there’s no drainage. It’s always icy, and it’s just a terrible spot for kids to cross,” McCarty said. “And there’s an irregular ditch to the west of there, so that property owner has always got issues. So we’re finally going to clean that up.”
The reconstruction includes sewer and water lines, and storm sewer as well.
The digging will be done in about six weeks, but the gravel base will be left open so traffic can pound it down and allow the gravel to settle. As a result, the gravel base is expected to be exposed for much of the summer.
It’s one of several big projects this year in Green Lake ... See the full list, only in the March 3 issue of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.
