Water Main Construction Updates:

October 20th Update
Construction crews have progressed down Watertown Plank Road resulting in the temporary closure of the Crescent Drive and Watertown Plank Road intersection as well as the roadway just west of the intersection. Please enter St. Mary's from the west.

October 18th Update
Crews have made their way to Stephen Place as of October 18th. Stephen Place will be closed tomorrow, October 19th, and as a result all traffic will need to exit the subdivision onto Watertown Plank Road at Longwood Avenue and go east to 124th Street. 

Another crew is working on Knoll Road heading west from 124th Street. Homeowners and businesses on Knoll Road can use West Grove Terrace to 124th Street to exit the subdivision or they can use Longwood Avenue to Watertown Plank Road and go east to 124th Street to exit the subdivision if they are west of crews on Knoll Road. If homeowners and businesses are east of crews on Knoll Road they should go east on Knoll Road to exit onto 124th Street. 

September 1st Update: Watertown Plank Road in Wauwatosa (east of 124th Street) will be open but reduced to one traffic lane in each direction.  
Please be advised, In conjunction with the water main expansion from the City of Wauwatosa into the Village of Elm Grove, a traffic detour will be established to mitigate a closure of Watertown Plank Road. This detour will go into effect on Wednesday, September 27, 2023. Construction of the water main is expected to conclude in November 2023.
