______________________________________________________________________________The Village of Little Chute Department of Public Works is constantly undertaking a variety of projects ranging form road construction, water and sewer replacement and storm water management. Throughout the course of the year, road project updates will be available.
2019 UTILITY & STREET CONSTUCTION – EVERGREEN DRIVE
Schedule: June 2019 to October 2019
The proposed project consists of reconstructing approximately 5,230 centerline feet of roadway along Evergreen Drive from French Road to Holland Road in the Village of Little Chute, Outagamie County, Wisconsin. The reconstruction project includes the following: replacement of the existing roadway, removal of any trees within the right-of-way that will be in conflict with utility or paving operation, storm sewer utility installation, sanitary sewer manhole adjustments, water main lowering, future utility stub outs for storm sewer, water main and sanitary sewer, reconstructing all side road intersections to match point, installing concrete curb & gutter, installation of reinforced (doweled) concrete pavement, and associated driveway and lawn restoration work. The proposed roadway will be converted from a rural to urban typical section and widened from its current width (approximately 23-feet) to be 38-feet from face of curb to face of curb. The proposed widening will include two (2) 12-foot drive lanes and a 14-foot two-way left turn lane. The proposed roadway will be contained within the current 66-foot right-of-way.
Updated Weekly Schedule (October 14th to October 18th)
EVERGREEN DRIVE UTILITIES
Don Hietpas & Sons has completed the storm sewer utility work on Evergreen Drive between French Road & Holland Road.
EVERGREEN DRIVE PAVING
Vinton Construction is the general contractor for the Village paving contract on Evergreen Drive. Vinton has completed the mainline concrete pavement on Evergreen Drive, mainline paving is now complete on both sides from French Road to Holland Road. Vinton’s grading crews are active placing fill and performing site grading in preparation for the landscape restoration. Vinton has completed the first phase for gaps on Evergreen as well the handwork for the intersections of Cherryvale Avenue and Holland Road. Vinton will continue with grading and paving of concrete handwork for the remaining pavement gaps, intersections, and driveway aprons this week. Evergreen Drive remains an active construction site. For your safety as well as those working in the area, please avoid use when possible.
Traffic Impacts: Evergreen Drive has been re-opened to two-way traffic between French Road and Holland Road. Evergreen Drive is posted for “Local Traffic Only” and remains closed to through traffic. It is illegal to drive past a “ROAD CLOSED” sign or to move any construction barricades. Residents, business owners, and customers may access properties past “ROAD CLOSED – LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY” signs. Parking is not permitted on the street, access for drop off and pick up are allowed. Residents should expect additional restrictions due to installation of proposed pavement.
2019 ASPHALT PAVING PROJECTS - PARK AVENUE ASPHALT PAVING
The proposed project consists of asphalt paving approximately 7,200 square yards. The utilities under the pavement are in good condition and will not require replacement. This project will include the removal of the existing asphalt and gravel base. The subgrade will be reshaped and compacted. Finally, a new gravel base and asphalt pavement will be installed. Additional work will include rim adjustment of structures and replacement of damaged curb and gutter in spot locations.
Park Avenue is now open to through traffic with no construction restrictions. Project is complete.

The utility (storm Sewer) and concrete street reconstruction is necessary on West Evergreen Drive to accommodate new development and increased traffic load. The proposed work includes new concrete pavement with integral curb and gutter, storm sewer, and grass restoration areas. The new pavement on West Evergreen Drive will be comprised of two 12-foot-wide drive lanes and one 14-foot-wide common center turning lane.
Asphalt pavement replacement is needed on Park Avenue because it has reached the useful life expectancy of the pavement. Because the utilities are in relatively good condition with curb and gutter requiring only spot repairs it is best to replace the asphalt pavement and not install a 50-year concrete pavement over the ageing infrastructure. With asphalt being approximately half the cost of concrete at approximately half the life cycle, it is economically more feasible to provide a pavement that will last 20 to 25 years to better match with the utilities life cycle before a total reconstruction is necessary. The existing condition of the asphalt pavement has reached a level where maintenance continues to increase without extending the pavement life. A pavement overlay is not an option due to the current condition of the pavement and subbase. To prevent further surface water intrusion and to correct sub-base rutting the pavement will be removed and subbase regraded and compacted prior to placement of granular base material and new asphalt pavement.
