NEWS RELEASE MAY 2, 2017
PAVEMENT MARKING IN DOWNTOWN DISTRICT TO BEGIN
Beginning on May 8, 2017, the City of Watertown will begin removing and repainting pavement markings for parking stalls, crosswalks, street centerlines and symbols along Main Street between College Avenue and Church Street. The City has contracted with Century Fence Company, out of Pewaukee, WI, to complete the work. The Contractor proposes to begin work at the intersection of E. Main Street and College Avenue and work west to Church Street, working in one lane at a time. The work will be done between the hours of 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday through Friday to accommodate customers and businesses. Each week work will begin at 12:00 a.m. Monday morning and finish by 5 a.m. Friday morning.
During the pavement painting, parking will be restricted on Main Street. The City will place temporary NO PARKING signs in the area the Contractor will be working. The City is asking landlords and business owners to advise residential tenants of the upcoming parking restriction. Business owners and tenants should also be aware that the paint removal phase will create some noise.
The City of Watertown is having an epoxy coating placed, which has a longer life span than the existing water based paint, and an expected live expectancy of three to seven years.
The project is expected to last approximately four weeks. If inclement weather continues, the project could exceed that timeline. If any business has a special event taking place in the next two months, the Contractor is willing to accommodate that business as best it can and is willing to avoid that business on its special day. Please contact Jay Haberkorn, City of Watertown Engineering Department, at 920-262-4047 to make arrangements.
