6th Street Reconstruction

La Crosse, WI | Public Works

Overview

ISG collaborated with the City of La Crosse and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to replace sections of pavement on 6th Street that are part of Downtown La Crosse, using STP-Urban funding.


Opportunity

Street pavement was failing in a busy area of La Crosse, presenting the opportunity to update the roadway for multi-modal transportation.

Solution

6th Street South is a collector within the City of La Crosse. As part of Downtown La Crosse, this collector services not only several thousand vehicles per day but also has extensive use by pedestrians and bicycles due to its close proximity between City Hall, the La Crosse County offices, the Western Technical College campus, and Downtown La Crosse.

This project was completed to replace and upgrade the failing concrete pavement roadway. There was widespread joint failure with extensive asphalt and concrete patching that needed to be replaced. The project work consisted of an urban concrete pavement replacement, curb and gutter, brick paver terrace, bicycle and pedestrian accommodations, utility adjustments and other incidentals to complete the work. ADA compliance was achieved without impacting the abutting historically eligible buildings. This project replaced and upgraded the aging and failing system of street lighting to modern streetscape themes and decorative street lighting.

ISG navigated this project through the WisDOT project delivery and federal-aid processes. The project schedule met several milestones along the way to stay on track and eligible for federal funding. The project budget was managed through design to maximize the use of federal dollars, minimize any ineligible costs, and ultimately provide high value to the City.
