Developers and general contractors are anticipating a replenished infrastructure revenue stream coming down the pipeline. That means the time is now to work out an ongoing agreement for concrete cutting in Milwaukee you can depend on. The federal government has been touting a renewed commitment to repairing, replacing and modernizing crumbling roads and bridges. When the funding flows into Milwaukee municipal budgets, outfits that bid on these lucrative contracts can reach out to Cobra Concrete in advance to be able to fulfill their obligations on time and on budget.

Infrastructure Investments Require Concrete Cutting Services

The White House and Congress are bandying about an infrastructure investment that could reach as high as $1 trillion nationally. Milwaukee has already begun the revitalization process. The north side’s Century City Triangle neighborhoods drew praise for fulfilling some wonderful green initiatives last year. While the headlines and photo ops may focus on the rich gardens, the backstory includes sewer problems stemming from intense rains that overflowed the system. The neighborhood’s green initiative started with an infrastructure problem. After a group of community activists tackled the water issues, officials from Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewer District (MMSD) recommended more than $600,000 in infrastructure improvements last year. As general contractors bid on this type of work, they will need the high-level concrete cutting services that Cobra Concrete provides.

Milwaukee’s Friends of Lakeshore State Park called for the removal of tradition hard surfaces and installation of porous pavement, the creation of a visitor’s center and rehabilitation of the Milwaukee Public Museum parking lots among others. All of this retrofitting and rehabilitation will call for the use of deep cutting walk-behind slab sawing, and a variety of niche equipment will be brought to bear. In 2016, MMSD Executive Director Kevin Shafer called for the municipality to target 740 million gallons of green infrastructure capacity by 2035. Such lofty goals will mean that general contractors and the County of Milwaukee government are going to need a top flight concrete sawing and drilling outfit on speed dial.

Roads and Bridges

Milwaukee officials are well aware of the infrastructure upgrades that need to be implemented. When the federal government opens the funding tap, contractors should plan ahead for a flood of work. The rehabilitated West Mill Road bridge stands as a good example about the necessity of experienced concrete work. The bridge was inadequate to handle heavy rain flow in an environmentally friendly fashion. The existing concrete parapets were demolished and removed to make way for an improved, green bridge.

The city and county have numerous projects in the planning stages and even more on their wish lists. If these hit the bidding and implementation phases rapidly, there may be a log jam for the concrete cutting Milwaukee companies rely on to fulfill their contracts.
