June Work Plan:  Crews will be working on Storm Sewer and Watermain

Trumbull Street is being 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 narrower through lanes will encourage motorists to drive at a steady, calm pace, reducing air pollution.  The sidewalks will remain in the same location.

Adding the dedicated left turn lane is expected to significantly decrease accidents.  In the past 10 years, 54% of the accidents in this section could have been avoided with a center left turn lane.  This includes 70 personal injuries that could have been avoided!

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.  Tri-City Groundbreakers is the Contractor, and OHM Advisors is performing the Construction Administration.

    First Street was reconstructed between Washington and Madison. Work included new separated sanitary and storm sewers, asphalt pavement, sidewalks, and minor watermain work.  Prior to the project, the combined sewer was failing and causing pavement issues.
