Oshkosh Avenue closure anticipated to start October 1, 2018

The City of Oshkosh will be closing Oshkosh Avenue at Fox Street and Punhoqua Street for sanitary sewer construction within these intersections. The closure is anticipated to last about four weeks.

The Oshkosh Common Council approved the closure of Oshkosh Avenue on September 25. This closure is required for PTS Contractors, Inc. to complete the work required within the intersections of Fox Street and Oshkosh Avenue, and Punhoqua Street and Oshkosh Avenue in a safe manner for both the Contractor’s employees and the travelling public. This work includes an excavation in excess of twenty feet (20’) in depth.

The closure is scheduled to start Monday, October 1, and will be closed for approximately four weeks. Access will be maintained for the residents and businesses on Oshkosh Avenue and in surrounding neighborhoods. Signs have been posted in the area advising of the street closing.

The posted detour will be:
Eastbound: Koeller Street south to Witzel Avenue, east to Sawyer Street, north back to Oshkosh Avenue.
Westbound: Sawyer Street south to Witzel Avenue, west to Koeller Street, north back to Oshkosh Avenue.

Motorists are urged to plan alternate routes and expect delays due to the closure. As always, please be cautious when approaching any construction zone.
