Project Overview

The City is planning to resurface Dearholt Road (Milward Drive to Odana Road) in 2021 and 2022. The project includes the replacement of sanitary sewer and laterals, and storm sewer main and laterals. The asphalt pavement will be pulverized and 3.5-inches of asphalt will be placed back. The curb and gutter will be spot replaced as needed. The sanitary sewer and storm sewer work will continue into Odana Hills Park.

The Westgate Mall re-development requires offsite sanitary sewer improvements because the existing system is not large enough to handle the projected wastewater flows. The sanitary sewer along Dearholt Road will be replaced and upsized with 12-PVC from Odana Hills Park to Coney Weston Place and 10-inch PVC from Coney Weston Place to Odana Road. All the private sanitary sewer laterals will be replaced from the new main to the property line.

The storm sewer along Dearholt Road will be replaced and upsized resulting from the Wingra West Watershed study. The improved storm sewer will reduce area flowing and better convey storm runoff. The storm sewer connection through Odana Hills Park to Odana Pond will be replaced.
