We are paving!

The second course of asphalt has been placed.  The final course will be paved when weather allows.  The forecast is looking promising!  

After the paving is finished, the contractor needs to paint the lines and pour concrete around the manholes and catch basins. The concrete will need to cure for up to one week before traffic can drive over it.

Stay tuned for updates.

Drinking Water Revolving Fund – Watermain Project

The Water Division obtained a low-interest Drinking Water Revolving Fund loan through Michigan EGLE (formerly MDEQ). The loan is for $5 million; in which $1 million does not have to be paid back. With new legislation, the City is now responsible for replacing private watermain services if they are made from lead or galvanized lead. This funding allows the City to perform a construction project that focuses on lead lines. There are three sections of the project:

  1. Replacement of Lead or Galvanized Private Water Services

  2. Replacement of Lead Watermain

  3. Hydro excavation to Determine Type of Water Services

The overall project includes approximately 1,000 water service replacements, 7 blocks of watermain replacement, and 5,000 hydro excavation locations.  Construction will continue through 2020.
