Water Replacement Map


September 24, 2018 Road / Water Main Replacement Program

  • Driveway work on Goodhue and Woodridge will begin Tuesday, September 25th.
  • Residents on Dunston, Thetford and Quarton Lane will see paving work this week.   
  • Water main work will continue on Martell Court.


We realize during the various construction phases, drainage structures at time protrude well above the traveled portion of the road.  Please drive slowly and with care to reduce potential damage to your vehicle. 



September 14, 2018 Road / Water Main Replacement Program Update

 

 The City recognizes the lack of paving on the streets under construction.  This is primarily due to a union issue with the contractor’s labor union, which has caused a lock-out.  This has not only affected our City but many other areas in Michigan.  Nevertheless, we are doing everything we can to keep the project going while waiting for the paving contractor to resolve their issue.  We are hopeful that this will be very soon. 

In the meantime, we continue to push ahead and you will see work in your area as follows:

  • Goodhue and Woodridge will see restoration work while awaiting paving which is planned to begin Thursday, September 20th.
  • Beresford and Dunston will be pulverized on approximately Monday, September 17th
  • Thetford and Quarton Lane will begin to be prepped for paving on approximately Monday, September 24th
  • Haverhill and Martell will continue to see work in preparation for paving to follow.
  • Water main work on Martell Court should be completed toward the middle of next week.
  • Bennington Drive has already been pulverized allowing the contractor to start water main and storm sewer work at the end of next week.  In addition to extensive water main and storm sewer work, culverts will be removed from driveways on both sides of the road.

This week the contractor continued with planning and preparation rather than beginning pipe replacement.  On Monday, May 14th, construction is planned to start at Church and Goodhue Road, in the north right-of-way, and continue down Goodhue.  This process should continue for the next 2-3 weeks.

The program is divided into four phases.  In each phase, water main infrastructure will be replaced prior to paving.  The first phase includes water main replacement on Goodhue Road and Woodridge; the project has started on Goodhue Road. 

New water main infrastructure will be installed on the east and north side of Goodhue as the road approaches Church. The City’s road right-of-way will be disrupted in these areas. There is no anticipated disruption of water service this week. 

Additionally, investigative digging is occurring on Goodhue Road to identify underground structures.   Woodridge Road is scheduled to follow Goodhue for the first phase.   We will keep you updated. 


May 1, 2018 - Construction Equipment Staging 

The City’s contractor for the 2018 water main work, Bricco Excavating, will be storing materials, machinery and equipment at the parking lot along Lone Pine Road between Church Road and Goodhue Road. The City right of way on Goodhue just south of Lone Pine Road, will also be utilized.

In addition to the parking lot off Lone Pine Road, the abandoned street of Woods Hole Way off Rudgate will be used as a staging area for machinery and material storage.  Both of these areas will be used for the duration of the water main project.
