The sidewalk cuttings, utility markings and new pipe being done in the area of Grignon to Eliza and Webster to Van Buren are for three different projects. The first is for WPS who are putting in new gas lines and services. This may necessitate some sidewalks being damaged. The second is that in anticipation of that, city contractors are going through that area to prep and repair damaged sidewalk from this event and look for other areas of sidewalk that need replacing. The third is TDS is installing a fiber optic connection to a Residence in the area of Van Buren and Grignon.
On another note, the scheduled reconstruction of Van Buren St. from Grignon to Porlier has been set back at least one year. The reconstruction of Porlier between Van Buren and Webster and Webster between E. Mason and Grignon is still set to start sometime after the Bellin Run.
