What you may not know: Week of July 8

Good afternoon everyone, and I hope you're enjoying this beautiful day. It's a quiet week for Appleton's Common Council. The full council will meet tonight but the agenda is short and the only item of significant interest to District 13 is approval of a consolidated action item to add concrete, curb and gutter to the previously unfinished portions of Ashbury Dr, Glory Lane and Intertech Drive. I discussed that work in this space three weeks ago.

Road Construction update

While it should be a relatively quiet week in the council chambers, it won't be quite as quiet on several neighborhoods in District 13. Road construction projects have recently wrapped up on Benvalley, Applecart and Sourapple Drives and are getting ready to ramp up on Ashbury and Appleview. Work on the latter streets was actually scheduled to begin on Monday but was pushed back a couple of days due to rainy conditions.

Here are three things I've recently learned about the construction projects that you may not have heard:

  • The crew working on Ashbury is expected to start with the NORTH side of the road. The south side will remain open to one-way traffic until the north side is completed.
  • Both Ashbury and Appleview Drive are still on scheduled to be completed by the end of August.
  • Assuming the council approves the other work to be done on Ashbury, Glory and Intertech tonight, those projects will start on Monday, July 15.

Keeping you informed on issues that may impact you around the city is one of my primary goals as an alderman. Making the council's activity as accessible as possible to as many people as are interested is part of my goal to make it easier for more people to get involved with issues that matter to them.
