Chip SealingChip seal application is used to help protect pavement and prolong its life. This process includes street cleaning, crack patching, sealing with a tar application and overlaying the tar with granite "chips". Then rolling the application to press the chips into the tar and helping flatten and smooth the roadway. Loose chips are then broomed off the street and removed.
Monona Public Works has bid a project for chip sealing the following stretches of roadway in 2022:
- Winnequah Rd. from Monona Drive to Tonyawatha Trl. south of Progressive Ave.
- Rothman Plc. entire street
- Progressive Ave. entire street
- Wallace Ave. from Dean Ave. to Valorie
- Roselawn and Edna Taylor entire streets

South Winnequah Road from Schluter Rd. to Bridge Rd. will be reconstructed in 2022. The project improvements include intersection crossing improvements, removal of existing "bumpouts", improved pedestrian facilities, improved bike facilities, speed humps to reduce traffic speeds, and replacement of existing pavement with some aggregate base repairs and storm sewer updates. Conceptual plans will be posted once the project design has been approved by the Public Works Committee and City Council. Bidding will begin in the Spring of 2022. Project construction is slated to start after July 4th.
Monona, Madison, and Dane County are working jointly to rehabilitate failing pavement on West Broadway Ave. between Frazier Ave. and South Towne Dr. The project scope and design is being led by Dane County with input from the City of Monona and Madison. The current design is going through WisDOT approval to reduce a travel lane in either direction over the HWY 12/18 overpass and adding a buffered bike lane from Frazier Ave. to South Towne Dr. Final design will be shared upon final approval. Construction is slated to begin late Spring 2022.
Updated January - 2022
Monona has contracted with Visu Sewer to perform maintenance on several segments of the City's sewer mains. The process for this maintenance includes installing a cured in place pipe (CIPP) between manholes inside of the existing main. The goal is to reduce inflow of groundwater to reduce the City's costs from Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District. Lining sewer main is a much less intensive project than ripping up roadways to remove and install new sewer main. During installation the liner will cutoff private sewer laterals from being able to drain to the main. During this time, water use should be at a minimum in affected properties to prevent sewer backups. After the liner is installed and cured the contractor will cutout the lateral openings. The final process is to come in and grout around the laterals to close any gaps between the lined pipe and the lateral. The project is slated to be complete by March 31. A second lining project will be bid in 2022 and take place this Fall.
