Racine Street & Main Street Construction Update

Racine Street & Main Street Construction Update

The City of Menasha and Menasha Utilities have awarded contracts for the reconstruction of Main Street (mid-block pedestrian crossing to Racine St), utility reconstruction on Racine Street (Main St to First St) and utility reconstruction on Ahnaip Street (Oak St to Naymut St/Riverway). Along with these contracts, AT&T will be performing utility relocation on Racine Street (Main St to First St). This work is needed in advance of the WisDOT Racine Street Bridge reconstruction Stage 3.

The schedule of this work is:
START: March 28, 2022 (Tentative work hours: 7:00am to 7:30pm)

The City of Menasha, Menasha Utilities and AT&T construction activities are anticipated to continue until mid to late May. Once our work is complete, Stage 3 of the WisDOT project will follow. It is anticipated that Stage 3 will be completed in the Fall of 2022.

Racine Street (Main St to First St), Main Street (mid-block pedestrian crossing to Racine St) and Ahnaip Street (Oak St to Naymut St/Riverway) will be closed to traffic until the completion of Stage 3 of the WisDOT project. Please observe the various construction postings for the work areas associated with this project.

In addition, observance of the following guidelines will help to expedite the work and ease the inconvenience which may be caused by this construction process. Your patience, cooperation, and understanding will be appreciated and necessary to bring about a successful and timely project completion.

  1. For your safety, as well as the safety of others, DO NOT MOVE BARRICADES. When the project is complete, the contractor will remove all barricades.
  2. Do not walk on any freshly poured concrete until 24 hours after it has been poured. Concrete edges, particularly, may break readily unless the concrete has had time to cure. You cannot drive on new concrete until it has cured for a period of 7-10 days.
  3. All areas disturbed during construction will be restored by the contractor.
  4. If there is any leftover construction debris, the contractor will remove it. Please do not throw it into the roadway.
  5. Please keep children away from the construction work areas and all the construction work activities in order to avoid possible injuries.
WisDOT will continue to have an on-site engineer during construction who is the primary contact for issues or questions related to the WisDOT project. The on-site engineer Kyle Witte and he may be reached at 920-366-0920, and the primary contact for issues or questions related to the work that the City of Menasha, Menasha Utilities or AT&T is performing will be myself and I can be reached at 920-967-3610.
