Project Overview

The City of Madison is proposing the resurfacing of Old Middleton Rd and Craig Ave. to take place in 2022. The proposed work includes complete replacement of the existing pavement, sanitary sewer main, sewer laterals, and storm sewer. Sections of water main will be replaced as needed. Sections of curb, gutter, driveway aprons, and sidewalk will be replaced due to condition or as needed in order to replace a sanitary sewer lateral from the new main to the property line.

Project Limits

Old Middleton Road: Capital Ave. to west of Segoe
Craig Avenue: University Ave to south end.

Backyard Sanitary and Water Service Relocation

In specific locations, sanitary sewer mains and water mains were installed behind homes. In these locations, private fences, outbuildings and landscaping have made it difficult for City crews to maintain the utilities. City Engineering and City Water Utility are proposing to install larger mains within the roadway right-of-way during street improvements. This work will require property owners to relocate their sanitary sewer and water main services from the back of their homes to the front of their homes. As part of this required work, the City of Madison will reimburse property owners for a portion of the work under the City’s plumbing conversion with sewer relocation funding policy and under the Madison Water Utility service replacement reimbursement policy for water service relocation of a 50/50 cost share up to $1,500 of total cost.
