Work on the bio-retention facilities on Tennyson is nearing completion.  In total, nearly 700 yards of fill were removed to create the bio rentention facilities which will allow for the storage of nearly 40,000 gallons of stormwater.  The project was funded through grants from both MMSD and the Fund for Lake Michigan.  

Landscape restoration throughout the project area will continue over the next few days.  The road resurfacing is scheduled to begin September 25 with the work lasting approximately 3 weeks.  Thank you for patience throughout the project.

The Department of Public Works continues work on the over-excavated stormwater retention areas on Tennyson.  Crews anticipate completing excavation on Wednesday and begin installing vertical fresh drains on Thursday.  The excavated areas will then be filled with a combination of stone, gravel, and engineered soils to allow for greater stormwater infiltration.  This work will continue to into the following week.  This work is being funded through grants from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District as well as the Fund for Lake Michigan.  

Due to a few rain days, the paving contractor is now scheduled to begin work the week of September 16, subject to weather.  The paving contractor anticipates the work to last approximately 3 weeks.  Crews will also begin full landscape restoration around the same time in September throughout the construction area.

Work on Tennyson Continues

Ditching and stormwater work continues on the north end of Tennyson.  Crews will transition to the south end of Tennyson in the coming week, starting with ditching on the east side of street.  Please use caution as crews will be over excavating ditches initially and backfilling with gravel and other materials to help manage stormwater in low lying areas.   

Landscape restoration is scheduled to begin the week of August 19 throughout the project area with road repaving starting the week of September 9.
