The City plans to reconstruct Davies St and Dempsey Rd between Buckeye Rd and Cottage Grove Rd. The proposed project includes replacement of underground utilities (water main, sanitary sewer, storm sewer) as well as replacement/installation of street infrastructure (roadway base, asphalt pavement, curb & gutter, sidewalk, shared-use path). After previous public meetings and receiving significant public input, City Staff recommends a proposed design that includes a 26-ft wide street (two, 11-ft lanes with 2-ft gutters), a 10-ft wide shared-use path on the westerly-side of the road, and a 5-ft sidewalk on the easterly-side. The shared-use path will continue the path on the northerly-side of Cottage Grove and provide an all ages & abilities bike route along the popular Lake (Monona) Loop Route. A preliminary overview of this proposed design can be found below. The proposed design will be presented in greater detail at the next public meeting where there will be an opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions.
