Handy Neighborhood Sidewalk
Trumbull Street Reconstruction
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.
Stay tuned for Upcoming Projects!
- Veterans Bridge Rehabilitation: MDOT will be upgrading and repairing the mechanical systems and deck concrete on Vets Bridge Jan. 2 - Aug. 2, 2019. Anlaan Corporation is the contractor, with the low bid of $2,717,484.33. Traffic will be detoured April 16th - June 14.
- Intersection of Jenny and Henry St. Reconstruction: MDOT will be reconstructing Henry Street, north of Thomas to north of Jenny (including the Jenny intersection). They will also be patching the concrete on Jenny between Henry and Catherine. Prior to the concrete work, the City will replace lead watermain and sections of storm sewer.
- M-13 (River Road/Broadway) Rehabilitation: MDOT will be rehabilitating the pavement with a 2-course (3-1/2 inches) between the interchange of I-75 and McGraw Street in 2019. There will be lane closures throughout the project.
- Clara & Dean Streets: Rowe 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.
- Lafayette Bridge Replacement: MDOT will be replacing the Lafayette Bascule Bridge (bridge on the east side of the Middlegrounds) in 2020-2022. For preliminary information, click here. Final plans are being developed.
