Seal Coating to Begin

Seal coating will begin in the city on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, weather permitting. This process is completed on various road surfaces to extend the life of the paved surface by providing a protective layer from moisture, chemicals, and the sun. Streets affected by this project include portions of Spaulding Street, Center Street, W. Madison Street, Emmet Street, S. Montgomery Street, Arthur Street, Lincoln Street, Hancock Street, Garfield Street, Cady Street, Kimberly Court, Schuman Drive, Wedgewood Drive, Wedgewood Court, and Stoneridge Drive.  The specific portions of the roads where the work will be done can be found by clicking on the following link: Street Work Updates.   The project is expected to last approximately 1-2 weeks.  If there is inclement weather, the project could exceed that timeline. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jay Haberkorn at the City of Watertown Engineering Department at 920-262-4047.

CP Rail Announcement

Detours planned for State Highway 19 in Watertown – Detours will be in place on Highway 19 on Watertown’s west side later this summer as Canadian Pacific replaces components on its bridge over the highway from June 18 through July 19. Local homes and businesses will remain accessible for the duration of the work, but residents may need to use detour routes. The work zone will encompass the area immediately underneath the bridge, which crosses over Highway 19 between Hiawatha and Dayton streets. CP workers will replace the bridge’s head walls and other components that are approaching the ends of their useful service lives. Safety will be CP’s top priority as work progresses on this bridge.
