Current Construction / Road Closures
10th Annual Spring Preconstruction Meetings - Canceled due to COVID-19
Out of concern for COVID-19, the Village will not hold its 10th Annual Spring Pre-Construction meetings. Instead, impacted property owners are encouraged to contact Public Works Supervisor Brett Thicke via email at DPW@richfieldwi.gov for questions, comments, and concerns. During the week of March 30th, property owners were notified directly of the upcoming construction and anticipated timelines. Business owners were also contacted via a separate mailer. Construction is anticipated to start the second week of June and is scheduled to be completed by the end of July. It is important to note that these timelines are weather dependent and are only a reasonable estimation of the time it will take to construct these roads. As a part of the construction, we work to notify our community partners like the U.S. Post Office, local bus companies, the waste haulers who service our community, and private parcel delivery to mitigate any potential service inconveniences that may arise from construction. While the roads will always be accessible to through traffic, there may be times where motorists will be inconvenienced for the safety of the workers.
7.1.2020 Update - The base course of asphalt has been laid on Hubertus Road from Hillside to Mayfield; Elmwood Road from STH 164 to Hillside and Jencris Court. It is expected the week of July 12th that the final lift of asphalt will be laid and the new shoulders installed, where necessary. There has been a delay on Kreuser’s Ridge due to a failed stormwater inlet. The Village’s DPW is in the process of making the repair. Once completed, the road will be scheduled for milling and pulverization.
Our 2020 Highway Improvement Program is the single largest budgeted item in the Village and the Department of Public Works accounts for approximately 52% of our Village budget. Therefore, Village Board and Staff strive to continue to involve residents, receive input, and keep an open dialogue with property owners; especially when it comes to road construction.
