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 roadway resurfacing, parking lot resurfacing, and crack sealing projects.
Throughout the City, over 10 miles of roadways will be resurfaced. Additionally, crack sealing will be done on over 38 miles of roadway. These projects are anticipated to start in April 2020, and will be completed by October 2020. Project-specific scheduling updates will be posted to this page as the projects progress.
The City of Waukesha will be constructing a water supply pipeline and a return pipeline within the City of New Berlin. Construction will start in December 2020 with completion prior to December 2023.

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) will be lining the existing force main along 124th Street, just west of Greenfield Park. A force main is a pressure pipe that conveys wastewater. The force main was built nearly 40 years ago and is in need of rehabilitation. Spot repairs at critical locations were completed in 2017; this project should extend the life of the pipe by 50 years.
