Every two years, the City of New Berlin is required to submit Pavement and Surface Evaluation Ratings (PASER) to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) that represent the physical condition of our roadways per state statute 86.302(2). The PASER rating the City uses rates each roadway segment on a scale from 1 to 10 (one being the worst and 10 being the best) by taking into consideration the surface distress, structure, roughness, and drainage. The information is used by the DOT to determine the city's portion of state transportation aid and helps the City create the Five Year Rehabilitation Plan, and plan annual maintenance projects.
This construction season, the City will be doing a mixture of reconstruction, resurfacing, and crack sealing projects. The major reconstruction projects will include:
Throughout the City, over 11 miles of roadways will be resurfaced. Additionally, crack sealing will be done on nearly 40 miles of roadway. These projects are anticipated to start in May 2018, and will be completed in October 2018. Project-specific scheduling updates will be posted to this page as the projects progress.
Starting June 25th, 124th Street from National Avenue to Lincoln Avenue will be closed to through traffic for a reconstruction project. The reconstruction will involve ditch grading, culvert replacement, and pavement widening to create 12-foot driving lanes with 5-foot paved shoulders. The project is expected to be completed by mid-November, weather dependent. This is a joint project between the City of New Berlin and the City of West Allis. Questions about the project may be directed to the City of New Berlin at 262-797-2445, or Bob Strysick, City of West Allis at 414-588-9533
