Sturtevant Station to be Refurbished

The village board of trustees in Sturtevant, Wisconsin, has agreed to pay for repairs to the city’s Amtrak station.

The work includes sandblasting and repainting the pedestrian bridge over the Canadian Pacific tracks at the station.

Jeff Seitz, village engineer and Department of Public Works director, told the board that without that work the structural steel in the bridge will fail “and then we’d have a much larger project to do.”

The trustees awarded a $179,533 contract to Thomas A. Mason Company of Milwaukee. Amtrak is expected to pay 85 percent of the project cost.

The work will be done at night when fewer trains are operating through the station. The village will pay pay Canadian Pacific for flagging costs, estimated to be approximately $10,000.

The work will take about four weeks to complete.
