WE Energies Gas Main Replacement Project
WE Energies is going to be starting a gas pipeline relay project, which will impact part of Greendale. From mid-May until September they will be replacing a 16 inch high pressure gas main, which runs along 51st Street from the border with the City of Franklin north to Grange Avenue, and then west along Grange Avenue to a point just west of the intersection of 76th Street and Grange Avenue.
In May and June utility construction staging will require closure of two southern lanes of W. Grange Avenue between 76th and 51st Streets. Both eastbound and westbound traffic will travel on the northern lanes of W. Grange Avenue. Access to the neighborhoods south of W. Grange Avenue may be restricted at Northway. Only vehicles traveling westbound will be able to turn onto Northway. Residents are encouraged to access these neighborhoods via 76th Street or West Loomis Road.
In July and August construction activities will require the southbound lane of S. 51st Street between W. Grange Avenue and W. Rawson Avenue to be closed from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. The northbound lane will be controlled by flagging so vehicles may pass in one direction at a time. All lanes will be open at night. There will also be intermittent impacts to sidewalk access in these areas. Please use caution when traveling in these areas. If you have any questions you may contact WE Energies at 877-380-0522.
