Greendale — The village expects its new archway, at the intersection of 60th Street and Grange Avenue, to be completed this week.

The new structure strongly resembles the village's first arch, located at the intersection of Northway and Grange Avenue, but is narrower.

The Village Board approved construction of a second village archway in February, and on April 1 the board awarded a contract with Poblocki Sign Company LLC for $91,458. However, Grandhaven LLC and the Reiman Foundation have already agreed to fund the entire project, estimated at $1 million.

"We couldn't be more pleased that Grandhaven and the Reiman Foundation have decided to help fund this entire archway," said Village President John Hermes. "This second archway will complete the bookends on Northway, which welcomes people to the village center."

The steel structure of the arch was erected earlier this month.

"These two archways are destined to be landmarks for visitors," Hermes said. "Our planning commission did a great job in blending the archways into our historic downtown. They now look like they have been here forever."
