Emerald Ash Borer Discovered in Ashwaubenon

Ashwaubenon is the newest municipality in Brown County to confirm an infestation of emerald ash borer (EAB) following previous discoveries in Green Bay, Howard, DePere and the Towns of Glenmore and Morrison.  The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection designated Brown County as a quarantined County in 2009.

Village Forester Tim Bauknecht made the discovery on January 26. Branch samples were collected from the tree and subsequently suspicious larval galleries were noticed under the bark. Linda Williams, WI-DNR Regional Forest Health Specialist, confirmed the samples as showing positive signs for EAB on February 4. read more ...

Construction Update - Ashland Ave

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WDOT) will be completing a reconstruction of the pavement along Ashland Avenue from 8th Street (in De Pere) to Lombardi Avenue during the 2017 construction season.  Work will start the week of February 6th and last through August 4th.  In general, the work will consist of bridge reconstruction, railroad crossing replacement, concrete repair, asphalt milling and asphalt paving.

The first portion of the project, starting the week of February 6th, will involve the replacement of the Ashwaubenon Creek Bridge located just north of Parkview Road.  Work on this bridge will last until late April and will involve the closure of Ashland Avenue between Parkview Road and Hansen Road. 

Following the bridge construction, roadway reconstruction will commence in early May and last through August.  This work will be done in sections to maintain as much free-flow traffic as possible.
