HIGHWAY 33 RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATE...HOT TOPICS (posted 9/22/14)

* Please share if someone got missed on this distribution list.  I can be reached at (608) 386-3907.
 
* Hagen Road is open, but still watch for construction: Signals are scheduled to be installed the week of Sept. 22nd, they will operate, timing with the city intersection at 32nd street will be later.
 
* WEDGEWOOD ENTRANCE WAS TO BE PUT BACK YESTERDAY BUT WE DIDNT GET CONCRETE CURE, SO WILL BE PUT BACK TO LATER THIS AFTERNOOON OR MONDAY. In the meantime people will need to follow the temporary signage and go around the frontage road.  Again: Look for changing conditions.

 * NOTE: The permanent new frontage road entrance will be built near the west end of the existing frontage road.  The town of Shelby will also be working in the intersection on some pavement replacement for about 100’.  This will be done concurrently when we pave the intersections and driveways, currently scheduled for the week of Sept. 29th.
 
* Currently, plan is to open up the hill to CTH F the week of October 6th Email notification will be given as soon as it is open.  We will coordinate the school busses to utilize the hill.  The sooner the better.
 
* CONCRETE PAVING SCHEDULE, hill Concern for Knobloch residents: as soon as possible (Monday, most likely) traffic will be moved to the gravel inside lanes and westbound walls and guardrail will go and pave new lane.
Next week Chippewa will be paving with two crews to catch up.
Mainline:  Beginning at Boma and continuing up the hill in the westbound lanes, winding up between Knobloch Road and CTH F New slip formed crash walls will be installed, shoulders will be wider and no rumbles will be installed.
Concurrently, therell be a sidewalk crew.  Concrete sidewalk will be installed on the north side of the road beginning at 32nd street and heading east to Boma.  You are cautioned to be aware of concrete trucks working 6 days a week
 
* Retaining walls starting next week will be completed at the barn at the top of the hill, near Hwy F, also the ones on the north (westbound) side will be completed as soon as the new curb and gutter is cured. There are a few problems we are working on with the walls.
 
* STATE ROAD 33 RESIDENTS:
*******************NORTH SIDE 35 *******************************
* THINK WHAT YOU ARE DOING FOR YOUR MAILBOX, BEST TO DO AS SOON AS THE NEW SIDEWALK IS INSTALLED. I am marking locations for permanent mailboxes.  Please call diggers hotline before you begin digging, and use hand digging methods, XCel  has gas main along the sidewalk, should be out of your way, but why take a chance.  Let me know if you have any questions about your mailbox, we are doing everything we can to eliminate utility conflicts and coordinate with the USPS, anticipated the last week of September.  I have the mailbox diagram in case you lost yours.
 
* Shelby to move the intersection signs and the fire nos. Let us know if any of them are missing.
 
* There are 8 of you who will require more days in which you cannot drive on your new CONCRETE DRIVEWAY!  These will have to be poured all in one pour and will require you to park on the new slab, or make other arrangements. Other ramps may be able to be installed depending on the situation.          Thank you for your patience.

The Town is selling stickers to be used when you have extra garbage that will not fit into the garbage cart.  They are 5 stickers for $15.00. (posted 5/2014) 

BRUSH: The Town of Shelby picks up brush every two weeks - pickup is done by calling or emailing the office at gloria.johnson@townofshelby.com to be put on the brush list.  Unfortunately, many residents are placing brush in the right-a-way and not calling to have it picked up.  This brush becomes unsightly and the mower is not able to clean up the right-a-way.  If you place brush on the right-a-way please call or email. (posted 5/13/14)

ISSUES TO FOLLOW

  • STATE ROAD RECONSTRUCTION will begin March 31st.  Construction will begin at the west end of the project. 32nd Street to Norseman Road will remain open to local traffic only.  (Local Traffic includes customers of Hillside Animal Hospital) Irish Hill, from Norseman Road to Knobloch Road, will be completely closed to all traffic. Knobloch Road and those coming to La Crosse from the east will have to use an alternate route to get to La Crosse.  The official DOT detour is Hwy 14 to Wesby, then Hwy 27 to Cashton.  Local residents have a few options using county roads, but it will be a difficult summer for many of us!  This is a WI Dept of Transportation Project.  Contact State Office DOT, Brian Meyer @ 789-5676.

  • RECYCLING CARDBOARD: Boxes should be broken down, bundled and placed next to or on top of the recycling bin and covered if it is going to rain.  Corregated cardboard has a wavy layer between the inner and outer sides. Cereal boxes, soda cartons, beer cubes, etc are not corregated cardboard and should be placed in the trash.  They are burned at the NSP RDF Facility and turned into electricity, which is not as high in the recycling heirarchy, but at this point the market for these materials does not warrant separate collection. (posted 9/13/2014)
  • 911 SIGNS: Project to replace all the 911 signs in the Town is underway.  New signs have been installed along Hwy 33, 35 and Co Road K. Project will be completed over the next two to three years.  New posts with fire numbers (same fire number/address, no new numbers) will comply with Federal mandates on size and visibility of address.  More information to follow as details of the project are completed. (posted 8/13/2014)
  • DRIVEWAY PERMIT: You need a Permit for any driveway repaving or reconstruction No charge for this permit - just like to make sure the drainage will be flowing correctly. (posted 5/13/2014)
  • There is a serious problem with dog feces being left in the parks!  It should be picked and taken home, not left in refuse containers at the parks or thrown in the bathrooms.  If the problem continues, dogs will be banned from all Town of Shelby parks.  Those who use the parks for other activities and park maintenance staff should not have to deal with your dog feces.  We are also having reports of dogs running loose in Pammel Creek Park and Mormon Coulee Park.  Dogs must be on a lease at all times outside of your yard. (posted 4/13/2014)
  • DUMPSTERS: Town does not allow dumpster or other obstructions to be placed on Town right-of-way.  Permits are available for special circumstances. (posted 4/13)
  • Town right-of-way extends 10-15 feet beyond the edge of the road.  This area is used for snow storage when snow is pushed back away from the road and sometimes the plows tear up the sod and dirt.  Generally the property owner will be responsible for repair. (posted 1/14/2014)
