Drivers traveling down Highway 20 in either direction will have to exercise a little caution starting Tuesday when roadwork begins between the railroad overpass and 90th Street. Construction is expected to wrap up by Nov. 15, weather permitting. The state Department of Transportation is heading up the project, and Super Western Inc., a paving contractor from Menomonee Falls, is the general contractor. Milling, paving, storm sewer crossings and moving signal cabinets are included in the scope of work. Work will consist of intersection improvements including wider and better marked turn lanes and new traffic signals where applicable. Medians will also get addressed and adjusted to fit the scope of the project, but intersections will not be closed during construction, according to a project summary emailed last week to village leaders in Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant as well as to business owners along the construction route. The length of roadway actually begins at the railroad overpass just west of Wisconsin Street and extends to 1,000 feet east of 90th Street. Access to businesses on Washington Avenue and to the north frontage road will not be affected. Crews will work during the day, but 10 night shifts will be required at some of the more major intersections.
