Plainfield Township’s contractor will replace the existing water main and water service within the public road right-of-ways along Kittery Drive, Bowdoin Pines Drive, and Bingham Court between April and June. Water main work will be completed by the Fourth of July holiday. On January 22, 2024, the Plainfield Charter Township Board of Trustees awarded the water main construction contract to CL Trucking & Excavating, LLC, of Ionia, MI. This project is designed to replace aging 6-inch cast iron water main with 8-inch ductile iron water main to improve system reliability and fire flows in the area.
Prior to the water main being installed, trees within the public road rights-of-way will be cleared as necessary to construct the new water main.
After the water main project, Alpine Township has coordinated separately with the Kent County Road Commission to complete road resurfacing sometime between July and September.
Local traffic will be maintained during water main construction. There may be times when your driveway is inaccessible because water main construction is occurring in front of your house or driveway restoration is taking place. The contractor will work with you ahead of time and will make special access arrangements with you if needed.
Mailboxes that interfere with water main construction will be temporarily relocated so that mail service can be maintained during construction. If your mailbox needs to be temporarily relocated, the contactor will inform you of where is has been moved to and when they anticipate it will be returned to it’s original location.
The contactor will work with you and your waste hauler to maintain service throughout construction. If water main construction interferes with your waste haulers ability to pick up your garbage, the contractor will temporarily move your garbage bins to a central location and return them to the end of your driveway by the end of the work day.
There will be times when your water service will be temporarily interrupted to facilitate water main connections or water service line replacement. The contractor or the Plainfield Water Department will inform you prior to this interruption taking place so that you can plan accordingly.
