3/13/12 – City officials in Beaver Dam laid out their plans for the reconstruction of Prospect Avenue during a public hearing yesterday. The city of Beaver Dam is reconstructing Prospect at the same time the state is re-doing portions of Highway 151, including the bridge over Prospect. The city project involved Prospect from Keller Boulevard to Eilbes Avenue, which will also see new curb and gutter, driveway aprons, street lighting and concrete sidewalk where none currently exists. The actual street reconstruction will begin July 1 even though Prospect is now closed to all traffic between Jacob Gassen Way and Eilbes Avenue. It will be re-opened to local property owner no later than August 1, 2012. The state work on the bridge is expected to take longer. One affected homeowner asked a question last night but did not express any concerns. The Operations Committee will consider the resolution to levy special assessments at their next meeting before it heads to the full council for approval.
