The City of Madison Board of Public Works approved the Plans, Specifications and Special Assessments for the project at the Board of Public Works meeting on December 12, 2018. The preliminary plans and the Board of Public Work Project Summary & Fact Sheet can be found at the links below.

Project Summary

The proposed project will reconstruct Koster Street from Bram Street to North Rusk Avenue and North Rusk Street from Koster Street to Nygard Street. The streets will be reconstructed to an urban section with curb and gutter on each side of the street and sidewalk on one side of the street. The street widths are proposed to be 32 feet from face of curb to face of curb. The storm sewer and sanitary sewer systems will be replaced and upgraded with the project. Upgrades to the underground City utilities including the sanitary sewer, water main and storm sewer systems will also be included with the project. The existing sanitary sewer main will be replaced with a new 8” PVC pipe and the sanitary laterals will be replaced from the new main to the property line for each house. The storm sewer system will also be upgraded with the project. New concrete pipe will be installed to provide increased capacity and better storm water drainage for the new streets. The new storm sewer system will direct a portion of the storm water runoff to the existing pond in Lyckberg Park.
