Core Spaces, Oliv Madison Project

Core Spaces, Oliv Madison Project
Specialty Services | Historical

Core Spaces, a residential development and management company, was in the midst of designing and executing plans for the mixed-use Oliv complex in downtown Madison. The project fell within the State Street Historic District and called for the demolition of four buildings.

CORRE prepared and submitted the necessary documentation for State Preservation Historic Office (SHPO) Review and Commentary on a State Undertaking to WDNR, which resulted in a finding of Adverse Effect. The documentation for this project required an expedited timeline to meet the overall project deadlines. CORRE completed a site visit to the project area, extensive research, mapping, and mitigation. The documentation and mitigation plan were approved by both SHPO and WDNR and construction of the project was able to move forward on time.

SOO-Line S-Bridge Historical Nomination

SOO-Line S-Bridge Historical Nomination
Specialty Services | Historical

CORRE successfully secured the City of Eau Claire’s Soo Line S-Bridge to the Historical Register at both the State and National Levels.

This steel Warren Truss bridge was built in 1910 at the height of the lumber industry by the Minneapolis Steel and Machinery Company. Deemed eligible to the National Register of Historical Places in 1998, the bridge was converted to a pedestrian trail facility in 2002 and declared an Eau Claire landmark.

CORRE’s team of professional historians partnered with the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire’s history department and tackled the research, paperwork, and coordination necessary to secure this railroad bridge’s rightful status. Its shape, design, and landmark designation were key factors to getting the official nomination approved.

STH 49/USH 151 Interchange, Beaver Dam to Fond Du Lac

STH 49/USH 151 Interchange, Beaver Dam to Fond Du Lac
Transportation | Construction Services

CORRE provided construction oversight and inspection services for this highway improvement project on USH 151 and STH 49 in Dodge and Fond Du Lac Counties near Waupun.

USH 151 traffic lanes were in severe condition with deteriorating underlying concrete pavement joints. Repairs included concrete base patching, longitudinal joint repair, joint and crack cleaning, milling and overlaying with new HMA pavement. The concrete approach slabs and surface drains on the bridge carrying USH 151 traffic over STH 49 were also replaced. Project staging included constructing two permanent crossovers on USH 151 and routing traffic bidirectionally to complete repairs.

STH 49 was also in poor condition and repairs included a mill and overlay from the USH 151 interchange to the east nearly two miles, as well as constructing new curb ramps and sidewalk at the intersection with Gateway Drive in Waupun.

This project spanned two counties as well as two WisDOT regions which required additional coordination and communication to make sure all parties stayed on the same page.
