Stimulus spawns roundabout project in Brookfield

By Sean Ryan

Schneider Excavating Inc. on Monday will begin a $1.1 million stimulus project to build a roundabout at the intersection of West North Avenue and North Barker Road in Brookfield.

The Lannon-based builder is scheduled to complete the project by Aug. 13, said Gary Evans, Waukesha County engineering service manager. It is the only roundabout that project owner Waukesha County will build this year, he said.

Money awarded to the county from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will pay the entire project budget.

Evans said the county opted to build a roundabout on the intersection for safety reasons and because Brookfield city officials and residents support the plan.

Schneider will close North Avenue at the eastern end of the intersection between June 14 and July 4 to build half of the roundabout. The company will close North Avenue west of the intersection between July 4 and late July, Evans said. Barker Road will remain open during the project, he said.
