Road Construction & Maintenance
Pavement & Surface Evaluation Ratings
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.
Construction & Maintenance Resources
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 2020 Roadway Rehabilitation Project schedule will be posted to this page as soon as it is provided by the contractor.
For residents within the 2020 Roadway Rehabilitation Project who would like the roll-top curb replaced with a driveway entrance curb, the contractor is willing to contract separately with individual property owners to have this work completed. The work will include removal and replacement of the curb and gutter in front of your driveway, and the lower portion of the driveway. All estimates, work, and payment will be coordinated directly between property owners and the contractor. If you are interested in receiving a quote to have this work completed, please provide your name, address, phone number, and email address to Lucas Pichler by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 262-797-2453. The deadline for submitting information is April 20, 2020.
** Update 4/27/2020: The contractor has informed the City that their driveway schedule is full, and they will not be accepting any more driveway replacement requests.
MMSD Greenfield Park Force Main Rehabilitation
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.
