Haseltine Street Reconstruction Project

The City of Richland Center and City Utilities will begin the Haseltine Street Reconstruction project between Sheldon and East Streets.

Pulverizing will begin the 26th and final completion is set for August 3, 2019 for the Water and Sanitary Sewer.  The Water utility will also do some construction along Ithaca Road.

The City contract for storm sewer installation and street reconstruction will begin on July 15 and is scheduled for final completion on October 15, 2019.

The detour route for County N from the City is south on Main Street or Church Street / Sextonville Road to US Hwy 14 to the east, turn north on Hwy 58 to Ithaca.  Haseltine Street will be open as much as it can be for local residents to access their properties.  Local residents may use Kinder Street while Haseltine Street is under construction.  Contractors are able to work between 6:30AM and 8PM between Monday and Friday and occasional Saturdays from 7AM to 5PM

Gerke Excavating is the contractor and MSA Professional Services the engineer for the sanitary sewer and water main replacement.  J & J Excavating is the contractor and Vierbicher Associates the engineer for the street and storm sewer construction.

Updates will be posted as they are available.

Click It or Ticket Safety Belt Enforcement

RICHLAND CENTER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Press Release
May 15, 2019

Richland Center Police Department to mobilize for Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement from May 20th to June 2nd.

Chief Lucas Clements points out that this year marks the 10-year anniversary of Wisconsin’s primary enforcement seat belt law. Since the law took effect in June of 2009, Wisconsin’s seat belt use rate has climbed from 74 percent in 2009, to just over 89 percent today. Over the last decade alone, numerous motorists in Wisconsin have avoided serious injury or death thanks to the simple click of a seat belt.

Still, law enforcement and other emergency responders see far too many people who make the dangerous – and frankly – irresponsible decision to not wear a safety belt. Last year, about half of the car and truck occupants killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes were not buckled up. These needless tragedies devastate families and generate enormous societal costs. Chief Clements states, “As part of our larger public safety mission, the Richland Center Police Department will join law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin as part of the national Click It or Ticket mobilization May 20 to June 2.”

Across our state and nation, officers will work in greater numbers for longer hours – not to simply stop and cite motorists – but to encourage everyone to voluntarily comply with traffic laws that serve to keep the public safe. During Click It or Ticket – and throughout the year – our goal is to ensure that all motorists are safely buckled up – every seat, every trip.
