Milwaukee’s Public Works Committee gave initial approval Wednesday to spend $10.3 million on engineering and construction costs for several projects scheduled to be finished in 2014 and 2015.
The full Common Council is expected to vote Feb. 11.
The committee approved spending $111,500 on engineering for projects that include paving, improving curbs, gutters and sidewalks and replacing a bridge and that could involve a special tax for surrounding property owners. An additional $2,438,300 was approved for construction that includes reconstructing a street, replacing a bridge and building speed bumps — projects that also could involve a special tax.
The committee approved spending $1,104,000 on engineering for sewer and water main projects, inspections and reviews that could not be assessed to property owners. An additional $6,667,115 was approved for construction of sewer, water main and bike lane projects.
The project costs are part of more than $139 million budgeted for roadway, water and sewer work.
