3/8/12 – Construction is set to resume on the Beaver Dam Highway 151 bypass today (Thursday). Officials with Lunda Construction say counter-directional traffic will start in the southbound lanes so work can be done in the northbound lanes. That pattern will shift in July for reconstruction of the southbound lanes. In addition, Prospect Avenue will be closed between Eilbes Avenue and Jacob Gassen’s Way beginning Thursday for removal and reconstruction of the Highway 151 Bridge. The state project is scheduled to be completed in June of 2013. The city of Beaver Dam is reconstructing Prospect Avenue at the same time as the state project. Prospect from Keller Boulevard to Eilbes will see new curb and gutter, driveway aprons, street lighting and concrete sidewalk where none currently exists. A public hearing for the city project to receive input on the improvements will be held on Monday at City Hall beginning at 6:30pm.
