City of Muskegon – Peck Street Road & Utility Improvements

Schedule Update

Construction on Southern Avenue has been rescheduled to begin Friday, September 24 instead of Monday, September 20. The road closure will begin on Friday, the 24th along with asphalt milling of the roadway. Sanitary sewer work will begin on Monday, September 27.

Schedule Update

Construction is scheduled to resume on Southern Avenue, between Jefferson Street and Peck Street, on Monday, September 20.  The project on Southern Avenue is anticipated to last approximately 5 to 6 weeks. The intersection at Sanford Avenue will be closed to traffic throughout the project with a detour route on Peck Street.

Peck Street is Open!

As of Wednesday, August 18, Peck Street is open to traffic! This week all of the prepared topsoil was hydroseeded, the pavement markings were installed, and the detour signage is in the process of being removed.

 

What Was Accomplished

Prior to this summer, the vast majority of the underground utilities on Peck Street were approaching 100 years of age. The old clay sanitary sewer was replaced with PVC at a steeper slope to eliminate a persistent maintenance problem for the City of Muskegon. Two cast iron water mains were upgraded to a single ductile iron water main and over 80 lead/galvanized water services were fully replaced with copper piping. The old clay storm sewers were replaced with concrete sewers throughout the project area in addition to rerouting the 36-inch storm sewer out of the Muskegon Public School Parking Lot. Finally, the 26-year old asphalt roadway was completely reconstructed with 6 inches of new asphalt.
