Title

Resolution directing the Commissioner of Public Works to execute an agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for the programming and construction of the improvement of South 27th Street (STH 241) from West College Avenue to West Howard Avenue with Federal/State aid under the State Trunk Highway Program, at a total estimated cost of $4,303,000, with an estimated grantor share of $4,260,000 and an estimated City share of $43,000.

Analysis

This resolution directs the Commissioner of Public Works to execute a project agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WISDOT) for programming and construction of the improvement of South 27th Street (STH 241) from West College Avenue to West Howard Avenue under the State Trunk Highway Program.  Approval of the agreement with the WISDOT will enable the project to be undertaken using 100 percent Federal/State aid for preliminary engineering costs and 100 percent Federal/State aid for construction costs, excluding cost for items designated to be non-participating by the state.  The estimated total cost of the project is $4,303,000 of which the City of Milwaukee’s construction share is estimated to be $43,000 and the grantor share is $4,260,000.  Approval for construction costs will be included in this resolution.  City of Milwaukee costs for plan review, which will be funded 100 percent by the City of Milwaukee, are estimated to be $8,000.
