Meeting to focus on 3-month McKee Road construction

Officials will hold a public meeting next week on an upcoming three-month road project that will affect multiple businesses and residents near the McKee Road area.

The City of Fitchburg Public Works Department said an informal open-house meeting will take place Monday at City Hall's Council Chambers, 5520 Lacy Road, from 7 to 9 p.m.

About 1.5 miles of McKee Road between South Seminole Highway and Fish Hatchery Road will be impacted by the construction project, scheduled to begin Aug. 1 and end in late October, according to the city.

The public works department said a six-inch layer of asphalt will be replaced during the project and the existing base course and soil underneath will be replaced on the roughest stretch of the roadway, from Osmundsen Road to Triverton Pike Drive. A new under-drain system will also be added to that part of the road.

The news release said that the proposed traffic staging plan will cause traffic to be routed to one lane in each direction. Access across closed sections of McKee Road will only be maintained at the traffic signal on Richardson/Longford Terrace and Chapel Valley Road intersections as well as Woods Edge Way.

A letter was sent to the businesses and residents located located withing a 600-foot distance from McKee Road, the city said. Anyone with questions, concerns, or seeking further information is welcome to attend Monday's meeting, Fitchburg said.

The city said it will maintain a page on its website with updates on the McKee Road project. Visit fitchburgwi.gov/2040/McKee-Rd/mckee-rd.
