The project will include water main replacement (including water services to the shut-off near the sidewalk), city sanitary sewer replacement, storm water drainage improvements, and street reconstruction. The street portion of the project will include removal of the existing surface, installation of a sand and gravel road base, and application of new pavement. The existing curb, gutter, and driveway approaches in the project area will also be replaced as part of the work. The contractor for the project is E.T. Mackenzie, Co., of Grand Ledge, Michigan.
Note for Residents
Vibrations caused by soil compaction during construction may cause slight water discoloration in your home. The discoloration is caused by sediment and natural minerals deposits coming loose in water lines. The discoloration does not pose a safety concern and can be flushed by waiting approximately 30 minutes for crews to stop work, or move from the area, then run cold water in a sink or bathtub until clear. Thank you for your patience!
