Title
Approving temporary construction work with associated noise impacts between the hours of 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM on East Johnson Street from North Butler Street to North Baldwin Street. (2nd AD)
Body
The City of Madison has proposed a project to reconstruct East Johnson Street from N Butler Street to N Baldwin Street in 2014. The proposed project includes the replacement of sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water main, street lights, traffic signals, curb & gutter and asphalt pavement. Due to the volume of traffic on East Johnson Street, and the expedited work schedule, we propose to allow Contractors to work between the hours of 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM. Work between the hours of 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM will be allowed only on a limited basis when deemed necessary, and must be preapproved by the City Engineer.

1. The amount of construction needed to complete the project exceeds the amount of production that a Contractor can reasonably be expected to achieve between the hours of 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM, even with the extra crews.

2. Private utility companies will be installing infrastructure in conjunction with the project that will require the closure of all travel lanes on East Johnson Street, at limited times, to allow the placement of large concrete utility vaults. When necessary, the closure of all travel lanes will be allowed for short periods of time and will take place during night time, off peak travel hours to limit the impact and delay to the traveling public.


The proposed activities beyond the hours of 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM are as follows:
