Webster Avenue is the shining example of what a bad road looks like.
“Right now, it’s kind of like a nuclear fallout zone,” said Chris Pirlot, operations director for Green Bay.
But a full reconstruction from the East River to I-43 will start up within the next month, making it brand-new.
“The vast majority of it, it’s going to be done before it starts getting cold,” he said. “You know, it could be October.”
And with the winter thaw–Webster is not alone.
If you get on the road, you are sure to see some car repairs in the making.
“We’re not doing a lot of pothole work right now because we’re concentrating on making sure we find our stormwater inlets,” he said. “We got the thaw coming, we got rain mixed in.”
As soon as next week, holes will start getting filled.
“We obviously don’t want people to mess up the alignment on their cars,” said Pirlot. “We’re going to take care of the bad ones. But the more routine style potholes where people might think this is a bad-riding rode–we got to prioritize when we only have so many people, so much time and so much equipment.”
And the city welcomes all reports of potholes because there’s nothing wrong with a reminder.
“DPW may already know about them, but I’d rather hear about them twice than not at all because we got to take care of them,” he said.
Construction contractors are expected to start digging up webster within the next month.
