Oshkosh City Hall set for major construction project

(Oshkosh, WI) Oshkosh residents wishing to come to City Hall beginning in March should be made aware that parking space will be limited due to the construction of an underground storm water storage tank. In addition, the work will cause many public meetings to be moved to locations outside of City Hall for the duration of the project.

The storm water storage tank is being constructed as an alternative to a ground surface detention basin, and will help reduce street flooding in the Division Street watershed. This includes areas from the Fox River to north of New York Avenue, between Main Street and Jackson Street.
The city opened bids for the project on Friday, Feb. 1, with the apparent low bidder being Miron Construction from Neenah, WI for a price of approximately $3.9 million. The Oshkosh Common Council is scheduled to award this bid at their Feb. 12 meeting.
Once the storage tank has successfully been constructed, the City Hall/Police Department parking lot will be reconstructed. The upgrade was scheduled because of the major impacts the construction of a storm water management facility will have.
Parking spaces will be maintained for Police Department operations, and a limited number of stalls will remain accessible near the entrance to City Hall for visitors.
To stay up to date on meeting locations, the public is encouraged to visit the quick link “Meeting Notices” on the city’s website at

Construction is expected to be completed in November.
