W. Ryan Road Closure: Feb. 24-March 16
In a collaborative effort with the City of Muskego, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District, and Emerald Park Landfill, the City of Franklin has hired and worked with an engineering consultant so that a study could be completed and evaluated for different alternatives on how best to address the odors that are traveling into your home when the Muskego/Emerald Park Landfill sewage system is operational. This study has determined the best solution to resolve these odor issues.
Starting Monday, February 24, 2020, W. Ryan Road will be closed to through traffic from S. North Cape Road to W. Loomis Road so that a sewer odor extraction system can be installed at the west end of the Franklin/Muskego borders where the sewerage will be introduced into the Ryan Creek Interceptor (RCI) sewerage line. All indications point to a successful completion of this project in the near future and positive results moving forward. This project is weather dependent, but anticipate that the road will be closed for 2 to 3 weeks. Hopefully open by March 16, 2020 at the latest.
