  • Clara & Dean Streets:  Rowe recently performed a survey and geotechnical study to determine the cause of the pavement settlement in the area.  Peat (organic soils) were found as deep as 17 feet.  Because peat is organic, it degrades over time and becomes unstable.  The consultant is preparing design plans for road reconstruction tentatively scheduled for 2020.

2018 Construction

First Street Reconstruction

  • Washington to Madison

  • Construction Dates:  Aug 20 - Oct 26, 2018

  • Construction Estimate:  $805,000

  • Phase 1:  Washington will be detoured at 1st St. Intersection

  • Phase 2:  First Street will be detoured Washington to Madison along Woodside AvenueCommunity Center

First Street will be reconstructed between Washington and Madison. Work includes new separated sanitary and storm sewers, asphalt pavement, sidewalks, and minor watermain work.  Currently, the combined sewer is failing and causing pavement issues.  This project will correct these conditions.

Phase 1 will be the construction at the Washington/1st Street intersection and should last two weeks.  Traffic will be detoured around the intersection.  Phase 2 will be will be the reconstruction of 1st Street.  Traffic will be detoured to Woodside, using Washington and Madison during construction.  Washington and Madison will remain open during Phase 2.

Wenona Avenue Watermain

  • N. Union to Hart

  • Construction Dates:  Expected to begin in July 2018

  • Construction Estimate:  $400,000

  • Traffic Maintenance:  To Be Determined

Bay City and Bangor Township are partnering to replace the watermain and relocate it to the opposite side of the street in order to improve distribution, water quality, and significantly reduce watermain breaks and maintenance costs.

Trumbull Street Reconstruction

  • Center Ave. to Woodside Ave.

  • Construction Dates: 

    • Phase 1:  October 2018 - March 2019

    • Phase 2:  April - October 2019

  • Construction Estimate:  $2,000,000

  • Traffic Maintenance:  Detoured on Johnson and Madison

Trumbull Street will be reconstructed between Center and Woodside. Work includes new storm sewer, asphalt pavement, sidewalks, and watermain, and curb and gutter.  

The street will be widened slightly to allow for three lanes - one in each direction with a center left turn lane.  The center left turn lane will reduce rear-end and side-swipe accidents, as well as allow the through traffic travel at a consistent pace, reducing air pollution.  The narrower through lanes will encourage motorists to drive at a steady, calm pace.  

The road and drainage portions of this project are being funded up to 70% through MDOT Local Agency Programs.  Watermain costs are reduced by coordinating with this project.

Phase 1 (October 2018 - March 2019) will consist of the removal of the west side sidewalk and trees necessary for utility relocations.  Public and private utilities are dense along this route.  Necessary relocations will take place over the winter.  Traffic will be detoured during portions of this phase.

Phase 2 (April - October 2019) will consist of the remaining removal items and construction work.  Traffic will be detoured during this phase.
