Railroad Crossing Project Information & Quiet Zones

State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation

Federal Railroad Administration Grant

Waukesha County Sealed Corridor Project

Village of Pewaukee Railroad Crossings

UPDATE as of August 30th, 2019

The bids for the roadway portion of the safety crossing project came in significantly over the estimate.  Per the WisDOT policy the project needs to be rebid in February and the work will be done in Spring of 2020.  The signal work by the Canadian Pacific will continue through the fall and winter so that the final construction completion will only be delayed by a bit.

As indicated in a press release from the Federal Railroad Administration dated February 22, 2016, the State of Wisconsin was awarded a $3 million grant to increase safety at 10 railroad crossings in Waukesha County. Four of the crossings scheduled for safety upgrades are located within the Village. The proposed safety upgrades are summarized in the FRA press release provided below.

On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, representatives from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, Canadian Pacific Railway, Office of the Commissioner of Railroads, and the Village, met to conduct a field review of the four crossings within the Village in relation to the grant to verify crossing conditions as part of a fact-finding part of the planning process.

The grant and its components are administered by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Dark Store Legislation Campaign

The Village of Pewaukee, along with many other Wisconsin municipalities, is supporting the League of Wisconsin Municipalities efforts to get legislation passed that would close Dark Store Loopholes that currently exist. Currently, loopholes in State law make it possible for commercial property owners to be assessed for much lower values, ultimately shifting the tax burden to residential property owners. The League of Wisconsin Municipalities has created a website with additional information regarding Dark Store Loopholes.

Please watch this short whiteboard video that explains how the Dark Store loopholes work and how it impacts you!
