Road Construction & Maintenance
Pavement & Surface Evaluation Ratings
Every two years, the City of New Berlin is required to submit Pavement and Surface Evaluation Ratings (PASER) to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) that represent the physical condition of our roadways per state statute 86.302(2). The PASER rating the City uses rates each roadway segment on a scale from 1 to 10 (one being the worst and 10 being the best) by taking into consideration the surface distress, structure, roughness, and drainage. The information is used by the DOT to determine the city’s portion of state transportation aid and helps the City create the Five Year Rehabilitation Plan, and plan annual maintenance projects.
2022 Roadway Rehabilitation
In 2022 the City will be resurfacing approximately 5 miles of roadway. Also included in this project is the reconstruction of Casper Drive, and the reconstruction of the New Berlin Recycling Center Driveway. This project is expected to start in mid May, and is expected to be completed by late September. Work in any particular area of the project will most likely not span this entire time, and an area-specific schedule will be posted as it becomes available. The roadways within this project will remain open to local traffic at all times, but may be closed to through traffic. Please see the map below for roadways and parking lots affected by this project.
TDS Telecom Fiber Optic System
TDS Telecom has begun applying for permits to construct a fiber optic infrastructure system within the City's Right of Way with construction starting in fall 2023. This system is anticipated to be constructed in roughly the eastern half of the City, from Calhoun Road east to 124th Street. As these permits are granted, TDS Telecom will construct their facilities. Being a utility, the City is required to allow TDS Telecom to install their infrastructure within the Right of Way with reasonable restrictions regarding proximity to other City infrastructure.
