Two Major Road Projects On Schedule

Work continues on expanding Pennsylvania and Drexel avenues, the city's two big road construction projects for 2012.

Oak Creek's two major road projects for 2012 are both on schedule, City Engineer Mike Simmons told aldermen Tuesday.

Drexel Avenue, which has been closed between 13th and 27th streets since mid-February, is on track to finish by early to mid-November. Crews are expanding the street to four lanes and connecting it with the new Drexel Interchange, which is also under construction and scheduled to finish about the same time.

Pennsylvania Avenue, meanwhile, is slated to be completed by middle or late October.

The street has been closed between College and Rawson avenues since late June so that it, too, can be expanded to four lanes.

Asphalt was scheduled to go in Wednesday and continue through this week, Simmons said.
