Pickford St Reconstruction

The Pickford St project involves installing a new stormsewer, plus water mains and resurfacing.  The street in in an environmentally sensitive area, on a slope close to Lake Wingra.

On Aug. 8, there was a brief but heavy downpour, providing an opportunity to see how erosion control measures were working.

View uphill from Monroe St.  At first it seemed there was no escape of muddy water, at least on the surface.
