6th Street Reconstruction

La Crosse, WI | Public Works

Overview

ISG collaborated with the City of La Crosse to replace sections of pavement on 6th Street that are part of the Central Business District.


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 the Central Business District in the City of 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, and the Western Technical College campus.

This project was completed to replace and upgrade 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. This project replaced and upgraded the aging and failing system of street lighting to modern streetscape themes and decorative street lighting.
