Guttenberg city council moves forward on Acre Street project
By Shelia Tomkins
At its regular monthly meeting on July 1, the Guttenberg city council moved forward on a major street improvement project for Acre Street.
Mayor Russ Loven led council members Virginia Saeugling, Ralph Livingston, Dave Schlueter, Jane Parker and Steve Friedlein through the evening's agenda. City Manager Barry Dykhuizen and City Attorney Michael Schuster were also on hand.
Jim Malony and Marc Ruden from IIW Engineers were present to discuss plans for Acre Street, a north-south street at the top of Guttenberg's west bluff. Malony's presentation included maps, information on the scope of the project and estimated costs. IIW will return to the council in August with final plans and to seek formal approval from the council.
Plans call for widening the street from its present 26 feet to 31 feet, in part to accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The project will be 1½ miles in length, from the Guttenberg Care Center on the south to the connection with recent improvements in the Lorenz Lane area on the north.
