Elm Grove Road - Watermain

* * * Project Updates * * *


The Village of Elm Grove will be installing a watermain on Wall Street and Elm Grove Road during the months of June and July. This project is being done to provide water service to the new senior living project on Wall Street and is expected to be completed by the end of August. The project consists of watermain construction down Elm Grove Road from Bishops Lane in Brookfield to Wall Street and all of Wall Street.


Currently the contractor expects to start work beginning May 28th. The contractor provided the schedule and details to the Public Works/Utilities Committee.

Traffic on Wall Street will be maintained open at all times with some possible delays. Elm Grove Road will be closed to through traffic once the contractor reaches the intersection of Wall Street and Elm Grove Road. The road will remain closed to through traffic until they are off road with construction and the road is considered safe for travel. It is expected that this closure should last approximately two weeks without any unforeseen issues.

Access will be maintained to all homeowners and businesses in the closed area of the road, but there will be no through traffic allowed during that time. Detour signs will be posted with the official detour route being Sunnyslope Road and Watertown Plank Road.
