This week, the contractor installed concrete curb and gutter between King and Mears, and some sidewalk and intersection ramps were prepared. Unfortunately, they had to gap out some work until Consumers Energy can remove their old utility poles. More road gravel was installed and spread for the road base and it was graded for paving next month. Concrete stairs were poured for a few locations and work on the retaining wall began.
Here is the work we expect to see take place next week, the week of May 27, 2019:
No work is currently planned for tomorrow, Saturday, May 25, 2019, but Saturday work may occur in the future. There will be no work on Memorial Day, May 27, 2019.
The remaining concrete steps will be replaced.
More concrete work will take place with the remainder of driveway approaches, sidewalk, and sidewalk ramps.
The road base gravel will continue to be installed and shaped for paving next month
Restoration and back-filling of areas disturbed will begin
More work on the retaining walls will take place
Consumers Energy and other overhead utilities will continue to work on relocating their utility poles.
If you or a neighbor will have trouble getting access to your home due to a disability, please let me know so we can arrange special access or assistance. Please stay off of the concrete with vehicles for a minimum of three full days after installation to allow the concrete to cure to full strength. This applies to vehicles. You may walk on the concrete within a few hours of the installation.
The contractor is doing their best to maintain a drive-able surface for local residents who live on Main, Johnson or King, but Main Street is closed to thru traffic. Please also remember that the stop signs are still in place on Mears and on Lake Street even though Main Street is under construction.
