As a precursor to the upcoming streetscaping project in the Village of Wauwatosa, contractors will begin relining the 1897 water main in State Street the week of March 28, according to the city's website.

Much of the work will take place in the Village plaza area between Cafe Bavaria and Cafe Hollander and the parking lot in Hart Park Lane.

There will be two excavations in State Street, one at 72nd Street near Leff's Lucky Town and the other at Underwood, near Noodles & Company. There will be lane diversions, but through traffic will be maintained.

Work to replace We Energies gas main facilities in conjunction with the water main project will begin soon at the Church Street and Menomonee River Parkway intersection and will work to the east into the Village.

All timetables are weather dependent are expected to last six to eight weeks.

Drivers are encouraged to use caution when driving through these work sites to provide safety for workers and pedestrians.
