PREAMBLE

The City of Madison has proposed a project to reconstruct South Gammon Road from US HWY 12/14 (West Beltline HWY) to Mineral Point Road. The proposed project includes the replacement of storm sewer, street lights, traffic signals, curb & gutter and asphalt pavement. Due to the high volumes of traffic on South Gammon Road, we propose to allow Contractors to perform limited work items between the hours of 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM. Allowing the Contractor to work outside the hours of 7 AM to 7 PM will limit the impact and delay to the traveling public and improve the efficiency of the Contractor. 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.

Madison General Ordinance Section 24.08(3) provides the Common Council the ability to allow construction activities outside of the hours of 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM with the passage of a resolution and a hearing before the Board of Public Works.

The work associated with the project cannot be fully constructed between the hours of 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM because:

1) Construction of a large, 54-Inch diameter, reinforced concrete storm sewer main is required with the project. Construction of this storm sewer main and associated large structures is required at the South Gammon Road and Odana Road intersection and will require limiting travel lanes at the intersection. Contract specifications require construction activities that disrupt live traffic lanes to take place during off-peak traffic hours in order to minimize the disruption and delay to the traveling public. The duration of work time required to extend the storm sewer main across the South Gammon Road and Odana...
