Webster Ave. reopens

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- Drivers who use South Webster Avenue will have a smoother ride to their destination.

The Green Bay Department of Public Works held a ribbon cutting on Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the road after several months of construction.

The nearly $3 million reconstruction project has been underway since May.

The project included up-sizing the storm sewer, replacing the water main and sanitary sewer, upgrading traffic signals and moving concrete pavements and pedestrian crossings.

"In a public/private partnership, we did work with the hospitals to install rectangular rapid flashing beacons; and those were actually funded by the hospital to aid in pedestrians crossing," said Steve Grenier, Director of Public Works.
