Beloit Road work included in county's five-year plan

Aug. 30, 2010

New Berlin — If the budget process allows it, Beloit Road would get a makeover by 2017 to deal with its high accident rate and traffic volume between Moorland Road and National Avenue.

Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas included such a project in his 2011-15 Five-Year Capital Plan, a significant portion of his proposed 2011 budget.

The unspecified work, for which design work would begin in 2015 for construction in 2017, would involve either a rehabilitation or reconstruction of Beloit Road in the south central part of New Berlin. The stretch of road reaches a volume of about 5,000 vehicles per day, according to a 2007 study, and a new Children's Hospital facility is adding to development along the roadway, Vrakas said in a press release.

The County Board was expected to see Vrakas' capital plan Wednesday and review the full 2011 budget later in September. The budget will be approved sometime in November.
