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.
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.
Special thanks to the City of Muskegon and the following contactors who made the Peck Street Reconstruction Project possible:
The tentative schedule to begin work on Southern Avenue, between Jefferson Street and Peck Street, is in the third week of September. The exact start date for the extra work on Southern Avenue will be confirmed next month.
Last Friday the final layer of asphalt was installed on Peck Street! If things stay on schedule, Peck Street should be fully open to traffic by the middle of this week.
Phase 2 of Peck Street is wrapping up quickly as Peck Street will likely be open to traffic before the end of next week! A start date for work on Southern Avenue, between Jefferson Avenue and Peck Street, is yet to be determined, with construction not likely to begin until after Labor Day weekend.
Kamminga & Roodvoets will be continuing to finish spreading top soil on Phase 2 tomorrow (Saturday), August 7.
As of this afternoon, the base course of asphalt has been paved on Phase 2!
Big changes are happening on Phase 2 of the Peck Street project. The underground utility work has been completed, gravel has been spread over the entire roadway, and concrete improvements are beginning today!
