*Higher cost of underground tanks is partially due to larger capacity needed for highway operations at substations, including
four 10,000 gallon tanks and one 6,000 gallon tank, and also due to necessary monitoring systems and electronic devices. By
contrast smaller above ground tanks are needed at other locations and hold either 550 or 1,000 gallons. Previously, those
underground tanks that could be replaced by above ground tanks were replaced, based on the implementation of a replacement
plan in the early 1990s. Those underground tanks remaining were due to inadequate space (that would have required the
purchase of additional land) and safety issues.
Project Scope & Description: There are 16 vehicle fuel sites utilized by Waukesha County departments with a total of 30
tanks (five underground, and 25 above ground). All tanks were installed in the early 1990’s. The infrastructure is aging and
will begin to exceed tank warranties and useful lives of technology and equipment associated with site operations. The 25
above ground and five underground tanks will be replaced with similar tank styles, design, and capabilities. Note: all
underground tanks are monitored with sensors designed to shut-off system operations immediately at time of detection, thus
eliminating the loss of fuel into the ground.
Funding for this project is spread out into later years, which allows for more initial research into replacement strategies and
costs before committing too much funding. The concept for capital budgeting for tank replacement follows: $400,000 will be
set aside beginning in 2018 and then $200,000 each year and $100,000 in the last year for a total $1.5 million funding level,
replacing tanks as needed. The focus for 2018-2019 is the replacement of the aging software system and card readers. Tank
inspections will be implemented when monitoring systems indicate they are warranted and replacement is likely in the near
future.
The budget strategy for the project is to fully fund the project and to utilize funds only as needed to complete improvements
when necessitated by aging infrastructure. This strategy is similar to the method used in the Highway Paving program where
funds are allocated to paving but not specifically to a location.
Location:
All 16 fuel sites that are utilized by Waukesha County Departments will require some form of replacements, upgrades and/or
modifications. Sites include Highway Operations Center, Nashotah Substation, North Prairie Substation, Sussex Substation,
New Berlin Substation, Nagawaukee Golf Course, Wanaki Golf Course, Moor Downs Golf Course, Nagawaukee Park,
Nashotah Park, Menomonee Park, Fox Brook Park, Minooka Park, Fox River Park, Muskego Park, and Mukwonago Park.
Alternatives:
Three alternative options exist at this time: close the site(s), fuel off-site in the local area, or consolidate fuel sites with other
governmental agencies. None is an effective option given the nature of daily departmental operating procedures and
emergency operation requirements.
Ongoing Operating Costs: Waukesha County currently spends $40K annually to maintain all 16 of the vehicle fuel sites.
The funding is contained within the Central Fleet Division’s fuel budget. An additional $2,500 in annual software licensing fees
is estimated for the new fuel system.
Previous Action: Regulatory requirements associated with the State of Wisconsin “Comm 10” statutes necessitated a fuel
capital project in 2012-14 totaling $232K (project # 201211). The project focused on upgrading fuel dispenser spill containment
and monitoring systems. The work contained in the 2012-14 project will not be duplicated in this project. Approved as a new
project in the 2014-2018 capital plan. Delayed in 2015-2019 capital plan. Approved as planned: 2016-2020, 2017-2021 capital
plans. Approved with a revenue update in 2018-2022 capital plan. Approved as planned in the 2019-2023 capital plan.

Project Scope & Description
The existing courthouse, located at 515 W. Moreland Blvd., was constructed in 1959 and remains structurally
sound. The courthouse currently houses the Judiciary, Clerk of Courts, Family Court Counseling, District Attorney’s
offices (including Victim/Witness), the County Board Room, Information Technology, and other miscellaneous
functions. Throughout the life of the courthouse, extensive remodeling has taken place to add additional courtrooms
and reconfigure interior space to meet the expanding needs of the services located in the courthouse. Operational
and business inefficiencies, particularly for the courts systems, have been created due to both space and building
limitations. The courthouse building infrastructure is approaching the end of its useful life. In addition, existing
courtrooms do not meet current design standards.
This courthouse projects (steps 1 and 2, mentioned below) will enhance security at the courthouse by establishing
“three-way separation” among inmates, court staff, and court visitors, which is a judicial standard that limits unnecessary
interaction and prevents potential confrontations. Other security enhancements will include improved video surveillance;
upgraded fire protection; better courtroom design, with clear line-of-sight for judges and bailiffs to monitor people; ability
for judges to automatically lock-down courtrooms in emergency situations; installation of staff and public announcement
systems to provide notifications during emergencies; and redesign of the security entrance to improve the flow of
courthouse visitors.
The county retained Zimmerman Architectural Studios to develop a “Courthouse Study,” (capital project #200914), to
provide a comprehensive analysis of courthouse space requirements and design needs. This study was completed in
2013, and Zimmerman recommended a two-step design approach (below). This project addresses step 1. A separate
capital project will address step 2. While approving this project in the plan does not obligate future County Boards for
step 2 (renovation of the existing courthouse facility as outlined in the aforementioned study, project #201705), it does
reflect the county’s future guidance for the overall courthouse project.
Step 1: Construction of a new four-story, eight-courtroom facility and relocation of eight existing courtrooms to
the new facility. This work also includes the demolition of the existing 1959 jail.
Step 2: Courthouse Project Step 2 will renovate the existing courthouse facility in a multi-phase vertical
segmented approach to provide newly renovated facilities for all divisions, except the secure
courtrooms addressed in Step 1. Courthouse renovation will also include the installation of new state
of the art mechanical, electrical, fire protection, window systems and new wall, floor, and ceiling
finishes in all renovated areas. This approach will not require temporary offsite relocation of
courthouse personnel.

Project funding includes $500,000 of capital project fund balance and $300,000 of prior-year jail assessment fee revenue
reserves, applied to partially cover the costs of the new courts building jail-holding area.
Step 2 is currently estimated to be $58.6 million. Going forward, many factors may impact eventual project costs,
including, but not limited to, incorporating additional operations to the courthouse space, future economic conditions,
and the maturing of the design process for the remaining phases of work that are part of step 2.
Location
Waukesha County Courthouse, 515 West Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, WI 53188.
Analysis of Need
The existing courthouse building, constructed in 1959, remains structurally sound. Over the years, extensive
remodeling has taken place to add additional courtrooms and reconfigure interior space. Public access to the building
is now limited to the main entrance (door #2) where security screening takes place. Customer circulation has been
identified for improvement, particularly the courts area. Due to the remodeling, some courtrooms are considered
inadequate since the space and/or security does not measure up to current courtroom design standards.
Based on the needs identified by the county and analyzed by the consultant, the consultant has recommended the
construction of a new four-story courts building adjacent and contiguous to the existing Courthouse and the relocation
of eight existing courtrooms to this building. This will address courtroom security needs, prisoner transport needs, and
customer circulations needs. Due to the design of this new building, it will not be necessary to temporarily relocate any
courtrooms or staff off-site during construction.
The existing courthouse is in need of complete replacement of its mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and
window systems. The need for these replacements will coincide with the completion of the courts building and the
vacating of eight courtrooms in the existing courthouse. The space left vacant by the courtrooms will be used in
consideration with the consultant’s recommendation for Step 2, as described previously in the project scope and
description.
Alternatives
Continue to operate all county functions and services at their present location utilizing existing facilities, risking HVAC
failure, and without gaining future HVAC, utility, and staffing efficiencies.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Based on information gathered through the design review process, there will be operating impacts related to staffing
and facility maintenance. Consolidating office space and moving operations within departments closer together, is
expected to result in greater operational efficiencies for most affected departments. With the exception of the Sheriff’s
Department, none of the affected departments have indicated a need for additional staff. The Sheriff’s Department is
requesting an additional six correctional officer positions during construction for Step 1 (January 2019 through March
2021), with three of the positions remaining permanently after construction. These additional positions are estimated
to cost $1 million during the interim construction period and $240,000 annually for the three permanent positions
beginning in 2021.
Step 1 of this project will demolish approximately 52,000 square feet of old jail space, which provided holding cells
connected to existing courtrooms in the current courthouse. A new 62,000 square-foot court tower will increase County
building space and is expected to result in higher utility, housekeeping, and repair/maintenance costs. Utilities are
expected to increase by a net of $5,000. For Step 2, the renovation of the existing courthouse will involve replacing
existing systems (e.g., HVAC) with energy efficient technology, which is expected to lower utility costs.
The court tower addition in Step 1 is expected to increase contracted housekeeping costs by $80,000. These additional
expenses will likely be partially offset by savings as the Facilities Maintenance Division plans to continue transitioning
from in-house cleaning staff to contracted cleaning staff.
Estimated third-party maintenance/repair services are estimated to increase $15,000. Additional in-house
maintenance/repair work is expected to be absorbed within the Division’s existing staffing levels.
Previous Action: The Courthouse Study was completed in August, 2013. Approved as a new capital project in the
2014-2018 capital plan. Approved as planned in the 2015-2019, 2016-2020, and 2017-2021 capital plans. Approved
with a cost and revenue update in the 2018-2022 capital plan. Approved as planned in the 2019-2023 capital plan. All
phases included committee review meetings open to the public.

The project cost for step 1 is estimated at $38.5 million. At this time, estimated project costs for step 2
remain at $58.6 million, based on the 2013 Courthouse Study (mentioned previously). However, there are
a number of factors that may impact the design and the construction costs of this project, including, but not
limited to, incorporating additional operations to the courthouse space, future economic conditions, and the
maturing of the design process for the remaining phases of work that are part of step 2.
The project schedule is being modified to extend construction one additional year (through 2026). The
project is expected to still start at the original time (2021 with the budget and concept phase). Total
estimated project costs remain the same at this time, but are spread over more years, helping reduce
projected annual borrowing levels and provide greater flexibility in meeting other future capital improvement
needs. From a project management standpoint, this will be accomplished by scheduling renovation of
specific segments in separate years (similar to how the project was originally planned).

Project Scope & Description
This project involves the reconstruction and widening of about 3.0 miles of CTH M (North Avenue) from Calhoun Road to 124
th
Street to four lanes and the replacement of bridges and culverts over Underwood Creek. A raised median will be provided
along the project for left turn movements. The median area, along with 3 ponds, will provide additional capacity for storm water
management. The roadway alignment will stay at its present location. Land will be acquired to a distance of 60 feet from the
roadway centerline and additional grading easements and vision corners as may be required.
The increased costs in the 2019-2023 capital plan were based on a more developed plan, including storm water management
ponds and further refined items and quantities as well as the rising construction costs. Due to some anticipated high
construction costs at or near Pilgrim Road, in the 2017-2021 capital plan, this project was combined with project 201202 (CTH
M, Calhoun Road to CTH YY) to form a single project to construct CTH M from Calhoun Road to 124
th
Street. To keep approved
federal funding, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation needed to move all construction funding to 2020-21.
Location
City of Brookfield, Village of Elm Grove
Analysis of Need
CTH M, or North Avenue, has been identified as a priority corridor for widening to four lanes by the Department of Public
Works. This portion of CTH M is shown as a four-lane roadway in the 2035 SEWRPC Jurisdictional Highway Plans for
Waukesha County. Traffic volumes recorded in 2011 along this portion of CTH M range from approximately 14,400 vehicles
per day (VPD) at Calhoun Road to 20,400 VPD at 124
th
Street. These volumes indicate that the existing two-lane roadway is
beyond its operating capacity, and is in need of widening.
Alternatives
Rehabilitate CTH M: This alternate will address pavement issues but will not provide the required level of service or
capacity warranted by traffic volumes, or improve ingress to the highway.
Reconstruct CTH M to provide necessary additional capacity.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Operating costs are expected to increase by approximately $42,500 per annum for the additional lane miles after the
construction phase is completed.
Previous Action
2010 -2014 capital plan: approved as a new project. 2011-2015, 2012-2016, 2013-2017, 2014-2018, 2016-2020, 2019-2023
capital plans: approved with a cost update. 2014-2018, 2015-2019, 2018-2022 capital plans: approved as planned. Combined

Project Scope & Description
This project is a rehabilitation of CTH D between Calhoun Road and 124
th
Street and the rehabilitation of the culverts at Deer
Creek. The roadway will be rehabilitated with minor shoulder and intersection improvements. The anticipated scope for the
culverts includes culvert lining and grouting, headwall reconstruction, and approach ditch re-grading. Structure rehabilitation
will effectively extend the life of the culvert structure, while avoiding the need to close the highway and excavate the deep
roadway embankment for a stream diversion. However, the proposed rehab does not address structure widening that may be
needed for highway expansion. Under this project, the roadway will remain two lanes. The acquisition of temporary
easements is anticipated to construct this project.
Culvert rehabilitation was originally proposed in capital project #201303, CTH D, Deer Creek Bridge, but federal bridge aid
funding was not available. However, federal Surface Transportation Program funding is available for structure rehabilitation
under this broader road rehabilitation project. Waukesha County has been approved for $2,287,000 in federal aid to help fund
the project. Project construction was previously delayed from 2019 to 2021 based on an updated WisDOT funding schedule.
Location: City of New Berlin
Analysis of Need
The pavement along this 3-mile long portion of CTH D is in poor condition and requires reconditioning. In 2013 the pavement
inspection conducted along CTH D found that the overall condition index for the pavement varies between 21 and 43, which
is the poor to fair range. Shoulders are paved and relatively wide. Intersections have turn lanes although some minor grading
may be needed to extend turn lanes.
The existing bridge (P-67-779) is a triple-barrel corrugated steel pipe culvert. Each barrel is 72-inches in diameter. The
structure was initially constructed in 1959 with two culvert barrels. The culverts were lowered, and a third culvert barrel added
in 1969 by a developer along with re-grading of Deer Creek. The structure now sits under a 30-feet high roadway embankment.
The two original barrels are rusting through at the normal water line. The stone masonry headwalls are in poor condition. The
riprap ditch at the northeast bridge approach is eroding. The existing structure appears to have adequate hydraulic capacity.
The structure sufficiency number is 33.1, which indicates that structure replacement or rehabilitation is warranted according to
WisDOT guidelines. The 2017 traffic volumes on the CTH D corridor ranged from 8,440 to 15,880 vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Reconstruct the existing bridge
Reconstruct the pavement
Ongoing Operating Costs: Initial maintenance costs may be reduced following construction.
Previous Action: Bridge rehabilitation portion originally proposed as a separate capital project #201303 (CTH D, Deer Creek
Bridge). Approved as a new project in the 2017-2021 Capital Plan. Approved as planned in the 2018-2022 Capital Plan.
Approved with schedule update in 2019-2023 Capital Plan.

Project Scope & Description
This project is a rehabilitation of the northbound (N.B.) CTH F bridge over Green Road. The scope includes
concrete overlay of the wearing surface, and reconstruction of the concrete bridge railings. Some incidental
concrete surface repairs may be appropriate on the slab underside. The roadway will remain two travel
lanes over the bridge. Right of way acquisition is not anticipated. A bridge rehabilitation report is being
completed, and will be necessary to verify the cost effectiveness of the proposed rehabilitation scope.
Following WisDOT approval of the rehabilitation report, Waukesha County will apply for an estimated
$282,000 in federal bridge aid.
Location
City of Pewaukee
Analysis of Need
The existing bridge (B-67-95) is a three-span haunched slab structure that was constructed in 1966. A
concrete overlay was placed on the wearing surface in 1989. The bridge transferred from state to county
jurisdiction in 2005. Overall, the slab and substructure are in good to fair condition. A 2018 thermal infrared
scan of the wearing surface (concrete overlay) indicates 25.5% delamination or de-bonding. The concrete
parapets (railings) exhibit significant cracking, spalling, and deterioration. There is some surface spalling
on the slab underside along the edges. The structure sufficiency number is now 63.5, and is expected to
be eligible for federal bridge aid (rehabilitation funding). The 2018 traffic volume on the northbound roadway
was 12,750 vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Reconstruct the existing bridge, but will not be eligible for federal bridge aid.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Maintenance costs may be reduced in the early years after construction.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to correct the safety problems along the curved segment of CTH
DE between Wild Rose Lane and Oak Court. Proposed improvements addressing existing potential
hazards include:
1. Realign approximately 1,600 feet of CTH DE with one gradual horizontal curve.
2. Widen the CTH D lane widths from 11’ to 12’; add shoulders that are 8 feet wide, of which 5 feet
are paved, and the rest gravel; and clear zones along this curve. Add pavement safety edges.
3. Improve clear zones to proper standards.
4. Add center line and shoulder rumble strip pavement markings to alert motorists approaching and
driving through this curved highway segment.
Location
Town of Genesee
Analysis of Need
A sharp horizontal curve on CTH DE between Wild Rose Lane and Oak Court has been the site of a number
of run-off-the-road crashes. Not only is the curve on CTH DE substandard, but the approach alignments
are such that the curve sits at the bottom of a hill that also has poor vertical approach geometry. The crash
rate for this location is 1.976 crashes per million vehicles entering, which includes one fatality. This rate is
above the limit of 1.5 crashes per million vehicles entering, above which action is recommended.
Alternatives
Improved signing and marking may reduce the crash rate but are not as effective as improving the roadway
geometry per the recommended scope.

Project Scope & Description
This 0.9-mile long project involves the rehabilitation/reconstruction of CTH T to improve the condition of the
roadway. Improvements will include: milling of and replacing the existing asphaltic pavement, base repairs to the
underlying concrete pavement, minor reconfiguration of intersections to improve safety, replacing/upgrading of
older traffic signals, storm water improvements, and adding additional sidewalks if requested by the City of
Waukesha. Traffic volumes along CTH T are approximately 24,000 vehicles per day. Therefore, traffic control will
be a major challenge for this project. Federal funds will be used to offset the cost of design and construction for
this project. The Department will apply for $2,055,000 in federal STP funds for this project.
Location
City of Waukesha
Analysis of Need
The asphalt pavement along this portion of Grandview Boulevard (CTH T) has deteriorated to the point where it
now has a pavement condition index (PCI) of 32 at which rehabilitation should be considered. The roadway was
rehabilitated and widened in 1997, but that rehabilitation is now at the end of its useful life. The existing pavement
structure consists of an asphalt overlay of an older concrete pavement. There are significant transverse and
longitudinal cracks, some curb failure, and the existing traffic signals, especially at the Woodburn Road
intersection, are requiring more maintenance attention. The 2012 traffic volumes on CTH T were 24,000 vehicles
per day.
Alternatives
Reconstruct the pavement. The distresses shown in the pavement surface indicate that the underlying concrete
pavement is still in a reasonable condition, therefore rehabilitation is a good option. Reconstructing the pavement would
at least double the cost of this project.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Initial maintenance costs may be reduced following construction.

Project Scope & Description
A bridge rehabilitation report was completed for this project and recommended deck repairs and a deck
overlay. However to meet federal funding eligibility requirements regarding shoulder widths, the project
scope was expanded to become a substructure widening and concrete deck replacement. During the early
stages of project design, it became apparent that the proximity of both underground utilities and the
remaining foundations of the old CTH ES Bridge would pose a significant risk to construction cost overruns.
In addition, closing CTH ES for long-term construction posed a significant concern for local emergency
service providers. Therefore, the project was re-scoped back to the original intent to repair and overlay the
existing bridge deck using 100% county funding. The project was bid in 2019 and was over budget.
Methods of traffic control will be reviewed, and the project will be rebid in early 2020.
Location: Village of Mukwonago, Town of Mukwonago, and Town of Vernon
Analysis of Need
The existing bridge (B-67-147) is a two-span, pre-stressed concrete girder structure that was constructed
in 1971. A concrete overlay was placed on the deck in 1995. The abutments and girders are generally in
good condition. The bridge is considered “structurally deficient” due to the condition of the deck, which
includes deterioration and spalling on the underside of the deck along both edges. The roadway over the
structure is narrow with minimal shoulders, causing the bridge to be classified as “functionally obsolete.”
The structure sufficiency number is 63.1, which indicates that structure rehabilitation is warranted according
to WisDOT guidelines. The 2018 traffic volume at the site is 9,100 vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Don’t do project, which does not address the identified deficiencies.
Rehabilitate the existing bridge to address structural deficiencies.
Rehabilitate with structure widening and federal bridge aid funding, but could result in higher overall
county share of costs.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Initial maintenance costs may be reduced following construction.

Project Scope & Description
This project is a replacement of the CTH YY structure over Underwood Creek. The roadway will remain two lanes
over the structure but the substandard shoulder width will be improved to current standards. The project is not
straight-forward due to a number of site constraints, which include: Underwood Creek runs parallel to the highway
for 300 feet; the site is adjacent to a city park (Wirth Park); the structure is in close proximity to a public street and
park entrance; the project site is near a railroad crossing, school, and cemetery. The 2035 Regional Transportation
Plan calls for CTH YY to become a 4-lane facility. Design of the project is underway, and various alignments of
future 4-lane expansion are being considered to determine best location for a 2-lane bridge. Various structure types
will be considered. The project may require stream relocation, bridge site relocation, park impact mitigation, removal
of existing retaining walls, compensable utility relocation, and changes to roadway vertical alignment. Right-of-way
acquisition to the ultimate width of 120 feet is anticipated. Significant additional easements are anticipated. Project
delay is due to coordination with other county and city highway projects, including the City of Brookfield Calhoun
Road expansion project and the CTH M (North Avenue) expansion project (#201008). The cost increase of $467,000
is due to unanticipated compensable utility relocation costs, impacts to Wirth Park, and updated construction
estimates reflecting current market conditions.
Location: City of Brookfield
Analysis of Need
The existing structure is a single-span, concrete slab that spans approximately 18 feet. Also, the structure was
widened to its current width using pre-stressed girders. Dates of initial construction and widening are unknown. The
roadway and bridge transferred from City of Brookfield to county jurisdiction in 2006. The abutments and
superstructure are in poor condition, per structure inspection reports. The roadway over the structure is narrow, with
minimal shoulders. Structure replacement is recommended. The structure has a span of 18 feet and is not classified
as a bridge per Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) standards, and therefore is not eligible for federal bridge
aid. Traffic volume on CTH YY in 2018 was 14,900 vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Rehabilitate the existing bridge, which does not address all structural and geometric deficiencies.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Initial maintenance costs may be reduced.

Project Scope & Description
This project is an overlay of the CTH XX bridge over Pebble Brook Creek. A concrete overlay is anticipated, but several
overlay types will be considered during design. Concrete repairs will be made to the spalled areas of the deck edges.
Existing bridge railing may be salvaged/remounted or completely replaced with this project. Approach guardrail will be
replaced to meet current standards. The asphalt bridge approaches will be repaved, and concrete approach slabs will be
added at the structure. Right of way was purchased to the ultimate width of 100 feet at this bridge in the 1970’s. No
additional fee acquisition is anticipated. Some easements may be necessary due to the proximity to railroad right of way.
This project was delayed in the 2017-2021 capital plan because the project was not approved for federal funding following
the 2015 application. Waukesha County again applied for federal funding in 2017, and in May 2018 WisDOT approved
federal bridge funding for the project. An agreement with WisDOT was executed in February 2019 authorizing $197,000 in
federal funds toward the project. The approved funding was $17,000 less than originally planned, but is offset with $17,000
lower cost estimates, resulting in no net change in the county’s share of costs.
Location: Town of Waukesha
Analysis of Need
The existing bridge (B-67-195) is a two-span concrete box culvert that was constructed in 1980. The roof of the box culvert
serves as the roadway driving surface. Most of the box culvert is in good condition. However, approximately 8% of the top
deck surface is delaminated, and some concrete is beginning to spall. The delamination is due to corrosion of the top mat
of bar steel. This bar steel is not epoxy coated. There is also spalling of concrete along both edges of the deck (roof) at
the drip edge. The approach guardrail is in poor condition and does not meet current standards. The roadway is functionally
classified as a ‘principal arterial.’ The bridge is considered structurally deficient’ due to its current condition rating. The
structure sufficiency number is 51.1. This indicates that structure rehabilitation is warranted according to WisDOT
guidelines, which makes the bridge eligible for federal bridge rehabilitation funding when the sufficiency index is below 80.
An independent engineering study report was prepared for this project prior to application for federal bridge funding. The
report verifies that the proposed project scope is a cost-effective rehabilitation strategy. The 2018 traffic volume on this
roadway segment was 5,200 vehicles per day.
Alternatives: Reconstruct the existing bridge and roadway approaches to current WisDOT standards. This alternative,
while addressing the deficiencies, is not warranted.
Ongoing Operating Costs: Maintenance costs will be reduced in the early years after construction beyond 2018.

Project Scope & Description
This 0.8-mile long project involves the rehabilitation/reconstruction of CTH O to bring it up to current standards.
Improvements will include: replacing the existing concrete pavement, reconfiguring intersections to improve safety,
replacing older traffic signals, minor grading, and adding sidewalks and storm water improvements. Access to Brookfield
Square Mall and other businesses adjacent to Moorland Road will need to be maintained during construction. Therefore,
traffic control will be a major challenge for this project. Federal funds will be used to offset the cost of design, real estate,
and construction for this project. The department was awarded $6,372,000 in federal STP funds in 2019, which is an
increase of $1,372,000 from what was originally planned (in part due to applying for offsetting funds for land acquisition
costs). The cost estimate for the project increases $1,265,000 to reflect more recent market conditions, but is more than
offset by the increase in STP funding, for a net reduction in the county’s share of costs by $107,000. The construction
phase of the project is delayed from 2021 to 2022 to correspond with available funding in the federal funding cycle.
Location: City of Brookfield
Analysis of Need
The concrete pavement along this portion of Moorland Road (CTH O) has deteriorated to the point where it now has a
pavement condition index (PCI) of 30 which is regarded as poor. A PCI of 20 would indicate that the pavement has failed.
The roadway was first built in 1978 and was rehabilitated in 2001, but that rehabilitation is now at the end of its useful life;
paving slabs have deteriorated; paving joints have faulted, and the concrete pavement is in need of replacement. Pavement
issues are further compounded by the fact that this portion of Moorland Road is one of the busiest on the county system
with over 30,000 vehicles per day using the corridor, which serves as a major access road to Brookfield Square Mall and
to the Bluemound Road corridor.
Alternatives
Attempt further rehabilitation. This alternate is not recommended because it is not considered cost-effective due
to the poor condition of the existing pavement and the high cost of traffic control needed to maintain traffic for this
roadway.
Reconstruct\rehabilitate CTH O as described above.
Ongoing Operating Costs: Operating costs are not expected to change.

Project Scope & Description
This project is a deck replacement of the CTH I bridge over the Fox River. In addition, the scope is expected to include
railing replacement, approach paving, approach guardrail replacement, and repair of riprap slope paving. The roadway
will remain two lanes over the bridge. Right of way acquisition is not anticipated. The Waukesha County Bicycle Plan
shows a proposed trail along the Fox River at the site of this project. This project does not include bridge widening for
purpose of bicycle trail. Roadway shoulders over the bridge will accommodate bicycles. A bridge rehabilitation report
has been approved by WisDOT that recommends deck replacement. Waukesha County amended a 2017 application
for federal bridge aid to be consistent with the approved bridge rehabilitation report. This was a change in scope from
superstructure replacement, which was the recommended rehabilitation alternative in 2017. Waukesha County applied
for federal bridge aid, and in May 2018 WisDOT approved the county’s application. An agreement with WisDOT was
executed in February 2019 authorizing $426,000 in Bridge Aid funding toward the project, which was $12,000 more
than previously anticipated. This is offset by an increase in overall costs of $12,000 resulting in no change in net county
costs. In June 2019 the project was approved for participation in WisDOT’s new “Low Risk Pilot Program” using state
rather than federal funds in construction. The Low Risk Pilot Program allows for a streamlined and accelerated design
process. Success of this pilot program may lead to improvements in the Local Bridge Program that result in time savings
and cost savings.
Location: Town of Waukesha
Analysis of Need
The existing bridge (B-67-097) is a two-span, pre-stressed concrete girder structure that was constructed in 1965. A
concrete overlay was placed on the deck in 1996. The bridge is considered “structurally deficient” due to the condition
of the deck. The deck edges and soffit underside are spalling. A thermal infrared scan of the wearing surface in 2014
indicates the concrete overlay is 22% delaminated. The riprap slope paving beneath the bridge has missing stone, and
should be repaired. The structure sufficiency number is 76.2, which indicates that structure rehabilitation is warranted
according to WisDOT guidelines and makes the bridge eligible for federal bridge funding (rehabilitation) with a
sufficiency below 80. The 2017 traffic volume on this roadway segment was 2,300 vehicles per day.
Alternatives: Reconstruct the existing bridge, but will not be eligible for federal bridge aid.
Ongoing Operating Costs: Maintenance costs will be reduced in the early years after construction beyond 2021.

Project Scope & Description
This project involves improvements to the intersection at Moorland Road (CTH O) and Beloit Road (CTH I). Left turn
lanes on Moorland Road will be turned into double left turn lanes; right turn islands will be added; Beloit Road will be
restriped to provide two lanes in each direction; failing pavement on Moorland Road will be replaced; and traffic signals
will be upgraded.
Proposed developments in the area have indicated the need for a number of incremental improvements at this
intersection to meet their needs. Additionally, pavement conditions and future background growth have identified further
deficiencies at this location. However, due to the proximity of I-43, it has been determined that a single project funded
with developer, county, and federal funding would disrupt traffic patterns less and cause fewer potential safety problems
than a series of small incremental projects. The project cost estimate was updated as design is nearing completion.
Construction costs have increased by $1.2 million due to a higher level of poor soils and drainage needs than was
originally anticipated. Additionally, aggregate concrete and signal infrastructure prices have escalated in recent years.
This is partially offset by an increase in federal Surface Transportation Program funding by $73,000, for a net increase
in the county’s share of costs by $1.1 million
Location: City of New Berlin
Analysis of Need
This intersection controls traffic on two heavily used roadways, Moorland Road and Beloit Road, and is a major gateway
to New Berlin from I-43. Recent traffic impact studies conducted for developments in the area have shown that the
intersection operates at a low level of service and that relatively small increases in traffic are having a large impact on
the intersection operations. As more developments occur in the area, background traffic will grow. The existing
intersection capacity is insufficient to meet the current and future traffic volumes and turning movements. Also, while
the roadway was last rehabilitated in 2006, the latest Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for this segment is 45. The
concrete pavement on Moorland Road is in poor condition and should be replaced. Traffic volumes within this segment
of Moorland Road are currently 31,000 vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Reconstruct the intersection to provide necessary additional capacity.
Reconsider project in a future capital plan.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Minor operational cost increase due to increased size and number of turn lanes.

Project Scope & Description
This 1.4-mile long project involves the rehabilitation/reconstruction of CTH O to bring it up to current standards.
Improvements will include: replacing the existing concrete pavement, reconfiguring intersections to improve
safety, replacing older traffic signals, minor grading, adding sidewalks and storm water improvements. Access
to other businesses and residences adjacent to Moorland Road will need to be maintained during construction.
Therefore, traffic control will be a major challenge for this project. This project will use federal funds to partially
offset the cost of design, land acquisition, and construction. The Department applied for approximately $10.8
million in federal STP funds in 2017, and was awarded $1,602,000 in 2018 for the design and land acquisition
phases of the project. The County will reapply for STP funding in 2019 for the construction phase and anticipates
being awarded the funding. Due to the need to reapply for construction funding, construction will be delayed until
the next federal funding cycle (2023 or 2024). Project costs estimates increase $1,440,000 reflecting changes
in market conditions. Total project revenue is projected to increase $1,920,000 above what was previously
planned (partly due to applying for STP reimbursement of land acquisition costs), resulting in a net decrease in
the County share of costs by $480,000.
Locations: City of New Berlin
Analysis of Need
The concrete pavement along this portion of Moorland Road (CTH O) now has a pavement condition index (PCI)
of 50 which is regarded as fair. While the PCI isn’t in poor condition, the transverse and longitudinal joints show
signs of significant deterioration, and it is anticipated that the roadway will be ready for a pavement replacement
by 2023. The roadway was first built in 1978 and was rehabilitated in 2006 but that rehabilitation will be at the end
of its useful life by 2023, and the concrete pavement will need to be replaced. Pavement issues are further
compounded by the fact that this portion of Moorland Road is one of the busiest on the County system with over
30,000 vehicles per day using the corridor which serves as a major access road to Between I-43 and I-94.
Alternatives
Attempt further rehabilitation. This alternate is not recommended because it is not considered cost-effective due
to the poor condition of the existing pavement and the high cost of traffic control needed to maintain traffic for
this roadway.
Ongoing Operating Costs: Operating costs are not expected to change.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to correct the safety problems along the curved segment of CTH C (Kettle Moraine
Drive) at Hasslinger Drive. Proposed improvements addressing the conditions described above and other existing potential
hazards include:
1. Realign approximately 2,200’ of CTH C with one gradual horizontal curve.
2. Realign and combine Hasslinger Drive, the private Oakland Road, and the driveway as one common intersection
approach aligned perpendicular to CTH C. Include a right turn-only lane and acceleration taper along CTH C at this
reconfigured ‘T’-intersection. Combining the driveways will remove the visual effect for north bound traffic whereby
the road appears to be straight – not curved.
3. Widen the CTH C lane widths from 11’ to 12’, its paved shoulders from 1’ to 3’, and clear zones along this curve. Add
new pavement edges.
4. Add center line and shoulder rumble strip pavement markings to alert motorists approaching and driving through this
curved highway segment.
5. Add intersection area highway lighting.
Waukesha County has been awarded $404,000 in Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding to help fund
this project. The scope of the project was reduced in the 2019-2023 capital plan to qualify for HSIP funding, but, based on the
30% design and estimate, the current budget is not sufficient to fully address the project needs. The reduced scope smooths
out the curve, but does not straighten the curve. Thus, it was determined in preliminary design that the hill along the curve
needs to be cut down to allow adequate sight distance for the side road/driveways that access CTH C along the curve. This
requires significant grading and excavation leading to additional cost. An additional $283,000 is needed in county funding to
achieve these objectives. The construction phase has been moved from 2020 to 2021 to accommodate the federal funding
allocation schedule.
Location: Town of Merton and Village of Chenequa
Analysis of Need
A sharp curve along CTH C (Kettle Moraine Drive) has an awkwardly configured intersection with a residential street
(Hasslinger Drive), a driveway and a private road (Oakland Road). Drivers must react suddenly to the changing curve radii of
its existing alignment. This rural highway intersection has among the highest collision rates along Waukesha’s County Trunk
Highways. There have been twenty-two (22) crashes reported from 2001 through 2017 at this intersection where average daily
traffic is approximately 3,800 vehicles/day for a crash rate of 1.174 per million vehicles. All of these crashes involved
northbound vehicles running off the right side of CTH C at the midpoint of its curve. All but one had occurred with wet/snow
pavement and/or dark conditions. One crash had a fatality and four others had severe injuries.
Alternatives
Changing this intersection to a full-way stop or a roundabout is not warranted and would not address the prevailing northbound
traffic flow problem along CTH C.
Ongoing Operating Costs: None

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to correct the safety problems along the curved segment of CTH
D at Moraine Drive. Proposed improvements addressing the existing potential hazards include:
1. Realign approximately 1,200 feet of CTH D with one gradual horizontal curve.
2. Widen the CTH D lane widths from 11’ to 12’; add shoulders that are 8 feet wide, of which 3 feet
are paved, and the rest gravel; and clear zones along this curve. Add pavement safety edges.
3. Improve clear zones to proper standards.
4. Add center line and shoulder rumble strip pavement markings to alert motorists approaching and
driving through this curved highway segment.
The county was awarded $786,000 in federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP funding), which
is an increase of $115,500 from what was previously assumed. Project costs are estimated to increase
$128,000 for a net change in the county’s share of project costs of $12,500 to match the State/Municipal
Agreement terms.
Location: Town of Ottawa
Analysis of Need
A sharp horizontal curve at the intersection of CTH D and Moraine Hills Drive has been the site of a number
of run-off-the-road crashes. Not only is the curve at Moraine Hills Drive substandard, but the approach
alignments are such that in combination with the curve they form reverse curves as drivers approach the
location. This combined with a relatively steep grade has been the cause of crashes. The crash rate for this
location is 1.8 crashes per million vehicles entering, which includes one fatality. This rate is above the limit
of 1.5 crashes per million vehicles entering above which action is recommended.
Alternatives
Improved signing and marking may reduce the crash rate but are not as effective as improving the roadway
geometry per the recommended scope.

Project Scope & Description
This project is a rehabilitation of the westbound (W.B.) CTH V V bridge over the Menomonee River. The
scope includes concrete deck replacement. In addition, concrete approach slabs will be replaced and
approach guardrail upgraded to current standards. The roadway will remain two travel lanes on the bridge.
Right of way acquisition is not anticipated. A bridge rehabilitation report is being completed, which will be
necessary to verify the cost effectiveness of the proposed rehabilitation scope. Following WisDOT approval
of the rehabilitation report, and once the bridge is eligible for rehabilitation funding, Waukesha County will
apply for an estimated $965,000 in federal/state bridge aid. Revised cost estimates result in a net increase
in the county’s share of the project by $16,000.
Locations
Village of Butler
Analysis of Need
The existing bridge (B-67-85) is a three-span concrete deck girder structure that was constructed in 1964.
A concrete overlay was placed on the deck in 1994. The bridge girders and substructure are in good
condition. A 2018 thermal infrared scan of the deck wearing surface indicates 24.9% delamination or de-
bonding of the previous overlay. In addition, the sidewalk and railings are deteriorating, with spalling and
exposed bar steel. The structure sufficiency number is 85.6, and is currently not eligible for federal bridge
aid. This project was scoped in 2017 based on bridge need. However, the structure sufficiency rating has
not dropped as much as anticipated since 2017. The bridge remains ineligible for federal/state bridge aid,
though the county continues to monitor bridge condition for appropriate ratings. For this reason, the project
is being delayed in Capital Plan. The 2015 traffic volume on the westbound bridge was 11,750 vehicles per
day.
Alternatives
Reconstruct the existing bridge, but will not be eligible for federal bridge aid.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Maintenance costs may be reduced in the early years after construction.

Location: City of New Berlin
Analysis of Need
The concrete pavement along this portion of Moorland Road (CTH O) is in poor condition; the transverse and
longitudinal joints show signs of significant deterioration. The roadway was first built in 1978 and was rehabilitated
in 2006, but that rehabilitation is nearing the end of its useful life, and the concrete pavement will need to be
replaced. Pavement issues are further compounded by the fact that this portion of Moorland Road is one of the
busiest on the county highway system with nearly 40,000 vehicles per day. The corridor serves as a major access
road between I-43 and I-94.
Alternatives
Attempt further rehabilitation. This alternate is not recommended because it is not considered cost-effective due
to the poor condition of the existing pavement and the high cost of traffic control needed to maintain traffic for
this roadway.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Operating costs are not expected to change.
Previous Action
Originally, the rehabilitation for this stretch of highway was included in capital project #201813, but is being split
out into this separate project.

Project Scope & Description
This project is a replacement of the CTH SS drainage structure over Meadowbrook Creek (a tributary of
Pewaukee Lake). A box culvert or concrete arch are likely structure types, though various structure types
will be considered. The roadway will remain a two lane section over the structure. The roadway has a
functional classification as a minor arterial, and 10-foot shoulders are anticipated. Shoulder widening may
require removal of an adjacent retaining wall. Other site constraints include close proximity to two
restaurants, Waukesha County’s Lake Country Trail, and a Pewaukee Lake access. To minimize impacts
to businesses, various roadway typical sections will be considered (rural, urban). Right of way acquisition
to the ultimate width of 60/66 feet is required. Additional fee acquisition or easements beyond the ultimate
width are anticipated.
Locations
Village of Pewaukee
Analysis of Need
The existing structure is a single-span structural steel plate arch with a span of approximately 10 feet. The
steel structure is in poor condition with significant deterioration in the lower portion of the culvert barrel.
Roadway railings/guardrail at the structure are in poor condition. The age of the existing structure is
unknown. The structure has concrete headwalls that are in fair condition. The downstream headwall is
continuous with a concrete retaining wall. The culvert structure has a span of 10 feet and is not classified
as a bridge per Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) standards, and therefore is not eligible for federal
bridge aid. The roadway functional class is minor arterial. Traffic volume on CTH SS in 2015 was 6,850
vehicles per day.
Alternatives
Rehabilitate the existing structure, which does not address all structural and geometric deficiencies.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Maintenance costs will be reduced in the early years after construction beyond 2026.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to correct the safety problems along the westbound and eastbound directions
of this curved segment of CTH B (Valley Road). Proposed improvements include:
Realign the Morgan Road intersection approach for providing a perpendicular connection with CTH B near
the midpoint of its existing curve. Add a right turn lane and acceleration taper along westbound CTH B at this
reconfigured ‘T’-intersection.
Lower the CTH B profile along this highway curve by ~1' - 2' for improving driver sight distance.
Expand slightly the curve alignment of the westbound CTH B travel lane and adjust its superelevation as part
of inserting a new eastbound CTH B left turn lane for Morgan Road.
Widen the CTH B paved shoulders from 1’ to 3’ and clear zones along this curve.
Waukesha County was awarded Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding for these intersection
improvements.
Location
Village of Summit/City of Oconomowoc
Analysis of Need
A CTH B (Valley Road) sharp curve at a Y-intersection with Morgan Road has been the site of a number of run-off-the-
road crashes. Westbound CTH B drivers approaching too fast can be misled by the appearance of this intersection's
large paved area, so when entering this curve they must react suddenly and can lose vehicle control. Not all turning
and other oncoming vehicles at this Y-intersection are visible from along its CTH B curve and from the existing
orientation of the Morgan Road approach. This curve has a crash rate of 0.61 per million-vehicles, which is high for an
average daily traffic of only ~3,900 vehicles/day. Many of the crashes caused severe injuries.
Alternatives
Improved signing (sharp turn advance warning signs with 20 MPH advisory panels and directional arrow warning) was
implemented as a lower cost alternative three years ago. Crashes persist along this short curved segment of CTH B
as the signing was not as effective of an option as improving the geometry per the recommended scope.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to correct safety problems at the CTH E (Tomlin Road) / CTH D (Wern Way) intersection.
Proposed improvements addressing the conditions described below include:
Realign ~500’ of CTH D so its approaches to this 2-way stop intersection are closer to perpendicular with CTH E.
Add overhead STOP sign assemblies at the CTH D approaches.
A significantly greater realignment of the CTH D intersection approaches was proposed for HSIP funding by Waukesha County in
2015. WisDOT had agreed with the need for these CTH D realignment intersection improvements, but noted its $913,000 estimated
construction cost and real estate requirements were too large. Waukesha County plans to apply for HSIP funding with this reduced
scope in 2020.
Location
Town of Genesee
Analysis of Need
The angle of the CTH D / CTH E intersection angle is at about 54°/126° for the existing highway alignments, compared to a 90°
preferred angle or a 70° - 110° acceptable range.
Fifty-seven (57) collisions were reported at the CTH E / CTH D intersection from 2004 to 2018 where average daily two-way traffic
totals 8,400 vehicles/day for a crash rate of 1.240 per million vehicles and has one of the highest collision rates among Waukesha
County’s rural highway intersections. Sixteen (16) of these collisions had incapacitating or severe injuries during this period. Nearly
all of these angle collisions were caused by this intersection’s sharp angle which limits CTH D drivers’ view of CTH E traffic coming
from their right. Trucks turning right from CTH D also may tend to swing wide into opposing CTH E traffic.
Alternatives
Improved signing and striping (additional stop signs, adjusted stop bars and improved ahead warning signs) was implemented as a
lower cost alternative in 2015. Crashes persist at the intersection as the signing was not as effective of an option as improving the
geometry per the recommended scope.
Changing this intersection to a full-way stop would not be appropriate for the contrasting traffic volumes along CTH E and CTH D. A
roundabout would require significantly more right-of-way and higher construction costs for addressing this intersection’s prevailing
hazard for CTH D cross-traffic.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this 1.0-mile proposed project is to correct operational issues, address deteriorating pavement
condition, and add 3-foot paved shoulders. To correct operational issues, the intersection of North Avenue and
Watertown Road will be realigned with turn lanes added. Signal and minor configuration improvements, as well as
intersection and railroad timing coordination, will be considered to address safety concerns at the intersection of CTH
M and CTH F (Redford Blvd).
Waukesha County plans to apply for STP funding for this project in 2021.
Location
City of Pewaukee
Analysis of Need
The condition of the pavement is poor, with a PCI of 30. The pavement currently ends at the edge line of the travel
lanes, causing cracking and fatigue along the edges of pavement.
The intersection with Watertown Road is poorly configured, and the eastbound Watertown Road intersection approach
has a rutted shoulder from lacking a bypass lane or a separate left turn lane. This intersection's existing angle is about
75°/105°, compared to a 90°-preferred angle. This causes vehicles to consistently overlap opposing lanes or use
shoulders to navigate turns. Additionally, this intersection is positioned immediately adjacent to a farmhouse so drivers'
view of cross-traffic is obstructed. With no bypass lane, motorists have reported back-ups extending from this
intersection to the very busy nearby CTH M / CTH F intersection. Twenty collisions have occurred at this intersection
from 2014 to 2018.
Alternatives
Rehabilitate the pavement only with the paving program using 100% county funding. This project would not add paved
shoulders or address the intersection of North Avenue/Watertown Road as those improvements are beyond the scope
of the paving program.

Project Scope & Description
The purpose of this proposed project is to install permanent signal poles and equipment at the CTH X
(Saylesville Road) / West High Drive signalized intersection. This existing signalized intersection had been
identified by WisDOT during 2012 as one of 5% of local road locations in Wisconsin warranting a local
intersection safety evaluation. Proposed improvements include:
Remove and replace all temporary wood poles, span wires, and signal heads with WisDOT-
standard permanent equipment mounted on monotube structures. Re-mount existing video
detectors and emergency vehicle pre-empt devices (EVP).
This intersection's existing controller would serve the new traffic signal. Minor signal operation
improvement details also will be implemented, including new clearance intervals, all-red times,
minimum gap times, and left and right turn detectors.
Location: City of Waukesha
Analysis of Need
The traffic signal at this ‘T’-intersection serving Waukesha West High School was installed with wood poles
and span wire during the fall of 2007 following several severe-injury angle collisions. The intersection was
installed on temporary poles due to anticipation of future development. This development of 35 homes is
anticipated to begin in 2019, but the primary access to the subdivision will be located on a local City of
Waukesha roadway, not at this intersection. What will be installed at the intersection will be a driveway for
a church located adjacent to the proposed subdivision. The church and developer are implementing several
infrastructure improvements, including a southbound CTH X right turn lane, a northbound CTH X left turn
lane, supplemental signal equipment mounted on the existing wood poles-span wires, and new sidewalks
with a CTH X crosswalk added between this new neighborhood and Waukesha West High School. With
the development moving forward with a driveway at this intersection, the final configuration of the
intersection will be established and permanent signal infrastructure should be implemented.
Alternatives
The alternative is to leave the existing wood poles and temporary signal configuration in place, but at some
point this temporary system will need a permanent solution implemented.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Maintaining proper alignment of the vehicle detection video cameras mounted on the wood poles after
strong winds and seasonal freeze-thaw conditions is an operational and maintenance challenge. Public
complaints about malfunctioning signal operation responses to traffic are frequently received by the
Waukesha County DPW. A new permanent signal will alleviate these operational calls and responses.

EXPENDITURE BUDGET $19,520,000 REVENUE BUDGET $4,074,000
*Includes $350,000 of GTA received above budget in 2018, appropriated as Capital Project Fund balance.
Project Scope & Description
The project involves resurfacing or rehabilitation of county trunk highways to remove distressed areas and provide improved
riding surfaces. It is the Department of Pubic Work’s goal to pave approximately 20 lane miles of roadway on an annual basis.
Crush, relay and surface or other alternative methods will be used as necessary in lieu of a simple patch and overlay. The
project includes the cost of the ongoing Pavement Inspection Program, which determines the sections of highways to be
repaved, along with the cost of shouldering, and parking lots at the department’s substation facilities. Project funding was
accelerated in the 2019-2023 capital plan, moving $1,000,000 from 2020 to 2019, to balance resources in the overall five-year
capital plan. Beginning in 2019, a portion of the state’s allocation of General Transportation Aid (GTA) revenue is budgeted
to cover repaving project expenditures. GTA revenues are budgeted to increase $20,000 in 2020 above what was previously
planned. Inflation and a reduced number of highway capital projects has caused a gradual reduction in the number of lane
miles paved and hence the average pavement condition rating has declined.
During 2019, the budget was amended through an ordinance (173-96), increasing expenditures $70,000 in order to pave a
five-foot portion of the shoulders along CTH DR (Golf Road) from the Delafield city limits to Maple Avenue in the town of
Delafield. This project is funded with $70,000 of donation revenue.
Location: Various locations throughout the county.
Analysis of Need
The Department of Public Works presently maintains about 400 centerline miles of roadways on the county trunk system. The
typical useful life of pavement is 15 years. The department reconstructed existing two-lane roadways to four-lane facilities.
These four-lane facilities are now coming to the end of their design life and need repaving. As asphalt pavements age, the
surface tends to rut and crack due to vehicle loads and weathering of the asphalt. The department has initiated a pavement
management program, using Cartegraph’s Pavementview software to rate pavement conditions and manage pavement
projects. The average Pavement Condition Index (PCI) of asphaltic pavements in 2018 was 62. It is the intention of this project
to continue to maintain and improve current pavement conditions. Resurfacing projects take into consideration the PCI of
existing pavements and classification of the road. The PCI ratings are updated on a rolling three-year schedule.
Alternatives
Spot repairs and patching. The result will be a slight delay in the deterioration of the system.
Resurface roadways based on pavement conditions determined by the PAVER pavement management system and
Department review.
Ongoing Operating Costs
The cost of maintaining a two-lane roadway in good condition is projected to cost about $7,000 per mile annually.
Previous Action: Approved as a new project in the 2014-18 capital plan. Approved as planned in 2015-2019 Capital Plan.
Approved as planned in the 2016-2020 Capital Plan. Approved with cost updates and accelerated in the 2017-2021 Capital
Plan. Approved with cost and revenue updates in the 2018-2022 capital plan. Accelerated with cost and revenue updates in
the 2019-2023 capital plan. Approved to accept a donation through ordinance (173-96) during 2019.

Project Scope & Description
Waukesha County owns the land and buildings, which serve as the University of Wisconsin - Waukesha campus.
Waukesha County and the Regents of the University of Wisconsin entered into a Partnership Agreement on June 11,
1965 and later amended on July 1, 1970 and January 1, 2000 to detail county and University responsibilities related to
the property. The Partnership Agreement details County responsibilities for maintenance items such as infrastructure,
HVAC, plumbing, sidewalks, parking lots, and landscaping. The Partnership Agreement terminates on June 30, 2040.
This project will repair and replace existing deteriorating concrete walks, terraces, stairways, asphalt parking lots, and
update the conditions for ADA code compliance, safety, stormwater management, and improved ease of maintenance
and campus function. All concrete projects will include erosion and sediment control, site preparation, drainage
improvements, excavation, demolition, pavement installation, and vegetative restoration. The project also includes
consideration for reducing or eliminating concrete to save future operations and maintenance costs. Third year (2019)
project funding was brought forward into 2018 to help balance overall capital plan spending between those two years.
No appropriation is needed in 2019 because it is expected that funds from 2018 will be available for that two-year period.
Location: The UWW campus is located on University Drive, south of Northview Road, and north of Summit Avenue in
the City of Waukesha.
Analysis of Need
In 2015, an assessment of need and condition evaluation report was completed to review the existing conditions, identify
improvements, and prioritize concrete walk, terrace, and stairway segments for improvements. Priority segments are
identified as areas that have failed or are in poor condition.
Alternatives
1. Continue to repair failed or poor condition areas as a series of small projects.
2. Repair and replace site infrastructure over a shorter or longer period of time.
Ongoing Operating Costs
The proposed projects will help to reduce on-going operating costs for UWW involving maintenance, walk closures and
potential risk areas. Reduction of total concrete square footage on campus will help to reduce future concrete
replacement costs for the county.
Previous Action: Approved as a new project in the 2017-2021 capital plan. Accelerated in the 2018-2022 capital plan.
Approved as planned in the 2019-2023 capital plan.

Project Scope & Description
In 2009, the Waukesha County Board adopted the updated Comprehensive Development Plan for Waukesha County. As a
result, an updated Waukesha County Bicycle Plan was developed through a collaborative effort between the Department of
Parks and Land Use, the Department of Public Works, all municipalities within the county, the Wisconsin Department of
Transportation, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the Southeast Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission
(SEWRPC). The Waukesha County Board adopted the Waukesha County Bicycle Plan as part of the Comprehensive
Development Plan in 2012.
A component of the Waukesha County Bicycle Plan includes an approximately five-plus mile multi-use trail from the City of
Waukesha at Frame Park to the City of Brookfield Historic Village area along Brookfield Road. This proposed project will
develop the three and a half-mile segment of the trail from a proposed trail access located on North Avenue, south of Watertown
Road in the City of Pewaukee, to a proposed trailhead located near the intersection of River Road and Brookfield Road. The
project will be coordinated with the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Department of Natural Resources, Army
Corps of Engineers, City of Brookfield, and City of Pewaukee. The trail will cross three roadways and the Fox River three times.
The Department of Parks and Land Use will seek funding from multiple sources. The project budget includes $2,032,000
(80:20 cost share reimbursable program) from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation through the Federal Transportation
Alternatives Program (TAP) Grant. The City of Brookfield and Waukesha County will split the remaining costs. The county
does not anticipate plowing the trail in the winter. Depending on future use and demand, the cities may cooperatively maintain
this trail for year-round use.
Location
The project is located on the abandoned railroad corridor, with a southern trailhead terminus on North Avenue, just south of
Watertown Road, in the City of Pewaukee, and a northern trailhead terminus at River Road/Brookfield Road in the City of
Brookfield. Features or destinations along the trail include the GE Medical Training Center located on Watertown Road.
Analysis of Need: The project is identified as the northern phase of a north-south connector trail in the Waukesha County
Bicycle Plan. The trail connects to 26 miles of established on and off road trails in the City of Brookfield, connecting residents
in several densely populated areas with a transportation alternative to access employment, retail, and recreation centers. The
trail also connects to the State of Wisconsin Hank Aaron Trail and Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail extending impact to
about 100 miles of connected trails and parkways through Milwaukee County. Additionally, the trail also connects to the
Brookfield Square Mall, the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, Waukesha County’s Fox Brook Park, parks in the City of
Brookfield and the Village of Elm Grove and several commercial and business areas including the GE Healthcare Institute.
Alternatives
One alternative examined was to build a connector bicycle lane or paved shoulder facility as part of the CTH F overlay project
(capital project #200905). However, it was a simple overlay project, and not a reconstruction project, and also has limited
available right-of-way for separated trail purposes.
Ongoing Operating Costs: This project will generate an additional three-plus lineal miles of trail to maintain. This facility will
be maintained by the current parks staffing level located at Fox Brook Park, with assistance from the City of Brookfield Parks,
Recreation & Forestry Department.
Previous Action: This Pewaukee to Brookfield trail was previously included in the Phase I: Waukesha-Brookfield Multi-Use
Trail project (#201407), and was approved with this project scope (enrolled ordinance 171-19), but was not awarded federal
TAP funding. This project is proposed to correspond with an application for a later federal funding cycle, and was approved
as a new project in the 2018-2022 capital plan. Approved as planned in the 2019-2023 capital plan.

Project Scope & Description
Waukesha County is partnering with the Villages of Sussex and Menomonee Falls to develop a regional dog exercise area (DEA) in
Menomonee Park. Similar to other dog exercise areas in other Waukesha County parks, the municipalities proposed to make an up-front
contribution to construct the facility with Waukesha County collecting revenue and being responsible for maintenance. An existing open
space area of the park provides an opportunity to implement a sizable facility that serves the residents of the northeast section of the
County. The design incorporates some of the existing park infrastructure, including parking, restrooms and a water source, while
separating the facility from other popular use areas in the park. The scope of the project would include two separate areas, each with
multiple entrances to allow for seasonal closure of sections of the facility for turf maintenance and regeneration.
An existing covered picnic shelter with modern restrooms will be incorporated into the space to create the opportunity for rental for dog-
related special events, which is a request that has become popular with patrons at Waukesha County’s other DEA’s. The fencing layout
will be designed to accommodate the closure of small areas for rental events.
Due to the very shallow depth to bedrock in Menomonee Park, a unique buck and rail fencing system is proposed for the perimeter of the
facility. This is a popular ranching fence style that is commonly used on large properties in the western United States. The design rests
on grade and eliminates the need for costly drilling into bedrock for fence posts. Fence sections can also be moved around with heavy
equipment if adjustments or closures are needed. The fence design will be modified slightly with the addition of the woven wire fencing,
which is used as a standard fence element to contain the dogs at all of Waukesha County’s DEA’s. The addition of a new parking lot will
supplement the two existing parking lots that will now be used for the DEA users. Since this is a one-year project, funds for construction
will not be spent until a standing committee of the County Board approves the project bid process.
Locations
Menomonee Park, W220 N7884 Town Line Rd, Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Analysis of Need
Residents of Sussex and Menomonee Falls have expressed considerable interest in the development of a dog exercise area in the
northeast corner of the county. Both Sussex and Menomonee Falls had been considering development of their own smaller facilities,
and the partnership will allow for the implementation of a larger facility that better meets the needs of residents. Small dog exercise areas
are often over used, making maintenance of adequate turf coverage difficult.
Alternatives
1. Do nothing.
2. Allow either the Village of Menomonee Falls or the Village of Sussex to create a dog exercise area.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Ongoing maintenance, including turf mowing, emptying trash receptacles, and snow plowing will be performed by existing Menomonee
Park staff. Costs will be offset by increased sales of park entrance stickers, which will be required for residents to use the facility.

Project Scope & Description
This project will improve an existing 810 foot accessible trail, which was originally constructed in 1993 within the 483-acre Retzer Nature
Center. The deteriorated existing trail will be reconstructed, ensuring full ADA accessibility and access to persons of all abilities. Features
and plantings along the trail will be designed to provide an extension of the educational programming that is offered at Retzer. Some of
the features will include an interactive sensory station, climbing logs, a rain garden, and a habitat play area. A new asphalt addition to
the ADA-accessible trail will also be constructed to connect the original trail footprint to a new ADA-accessible boardwalk. This will
increase ADA access by an additional approximately 400 feet, and it will connect to a 600-foot long boardwalk that is under construction
as a component of another ADA enhancement project.
The project goal is to provide barrier-free access to both nature and outdoor education elements/programs; therefore, the project will be
designed with input from local applicable experts and educators, to include teachers from area school districts who participate in
programming at Retzer, and occupational therapists. This will ensure inclusion and access for all adults, students, and children with
physical or mental impairments that substantially limit a major life activity. Project funding includes anticipated donation revenues from
the Waukesha Rotary ($45,000) and the Friends of Retzer Nature Center group ($45,000). The project is also funded with a Community
Development Block Grant intended to help improve ADA accessibility, and a State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
Stewardship Grant. Since this is a one-year project, funds for construction will not be spent until a standing committee of the County
Board approves the project bid process.
Locations
Retzer Nature Center, S14 W28167 Madison St, Waukesha, WI 53188
Analysis of Need
There is a need for improved access to nature and outdoor educational programs at Retzer Nature Center for persons of all abilities.
Currently, approximately 20,000-plus residents visit Retzer annually, and it is anticipated that the number will grow in quantity and diversity
due to this project.
The accessible trail will be designed and constructed to provide access to nature and educational signage and interactive exhibits at
Retzer Nature Center. The 810-foot trail will be 8-feet wide, barrier-free asphalt with maximum 5% slopes to comply with ADA
requirements. The original trail, which was constructed in 1993, was a concept that was leading the way in providing universal access to
nature education. Since constructed, it has served park visitors of all abilities for nearly 30 years but is now in need of renovation. The
original portion of the trail is in need of complete reconstruction and drainage improvements to reduce water and ice issues. New to the
project is the proposed addition of a paved trail that will extend universal access to a new accessible boardwalk, furthering the opportunity
for those with disabilities to access nature, and extending access to educational programs at Retzer Nature Center.
Alternatives
1. Remove the trail and restore the area to natural vegetation.
2. Repair and repave the trail only.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Ongoing maintenance, including plant care, invasive species removal, and snow removal will be performed by existing Retzer staff as a
component of the care for the Retzer Nature Center grounds. Maintenance of the asphalt trail will be added to the pavement management
capital project schedule. Any additional prep work to maintain the new interactive nature education elements for programming will be
conducted by the existing staff at Retzer.

Project Scope & Description
The Metro Mountain Bikers, Inc. (MMB) have partnered with Waukesha County to build and maintain the mountain bike trails in the
previously undeveloped south end of the Minooka Park. To date, four miles of trails have been developed. The bike trailhead is currently
located near an existing parking lot that is shared with adjacent picnic shelter #5. Due to the success of the mountain bike trails, a shortage
of parking can occur when there is heavy use of the trails and also a rental event at the picnic shelter. The parking area is also sometimes
used by users of the nearby hiking trails and equestrian trails, which escalates the shortage. Because of the quality of the mountain bike
trails, and the picturesque natural setting, Minooka Park has become a regional destination for mountain bike riders. Subsequently, MMB
has requested to expand the trails and add feature areas (segments of built structures for different skill level training and experiences) to
meet the growing demand for enhanced riding opportunities. To properly plan for new features and additions to the mountain bike trails,
the parking issue must be addressed. The department created a design that will add enough parking to accommodate all of the user
groups in the south end of the park, and MMB has pledged to raise the funds to construct the parking and the new features. Department
management will enter into a revised agreement with MMB that specifies that the project going forward is contingent upon receipt of MMB
contributions. Since the design and construction phases will both occur in the first year, funds for construction will not be spent until a
standing committee of the County Board approves the project bid process
Phase 1 would include: Construction of the new parking lot to eliminate user conflict by separating picnic area parking from trailhead
uses, connecting concrete sidewalks to existing restrooms and the new trailhead, fencing to separate bike trails from the parking lot, a
stormwater infiltration area, landscaping, bike racks, and other site amenities/signage.
Phase 2 will include: Expanded trails with bike skills features and additional signage/gates, which are anticipated to bring an increase in
use by skills riders.
Locations: Minooka Park 1927 E Sunset Dr, Waukesha, WI 53189
Analysis of Need
The current parking condition requires shared use of the existing undersized parking lot by mountain bikers and Picnic Area 5 renters,
along with hikers and equestrian trail users. The increasing popularity of the mountain bike trails continues to increase the need for more
parking. The MMB request for expansion of the trails and feature areas is not possible without first expanding the parking and reorganizing
the trailhead for the bikers, hikers, and equestrian trail users.
Alternatives
1. Continue to use the existing parking lot and limit the number of events that can happen at the same time.
2. Create a second entrance into Minooka Park or extend the existing road further into the park, to create a new mountain bike
trailhead and parking area, separate from other park uses and not leverage existing amenities.
Ongoing Operating Costs
Ongoing maintenance, including snow/ice clearing in the winter and assisting MMB with brush/tree removal on the trails, will be performed
by existing Minooka Park staff. Minor maintenance of the mountain bike trails, and the new trail features, will be performed by MMB
volunteers under the existing agreement that is in place with Waukesha County. Future maintenance of the parking lot asphalt will be
included in Waukesha County’s ongoing pavement management capital plan. It is anticipated that any increase in operating costs will
be more than offset by an increase in park entrance fees from new users of the facility.
