This week, the contractor replaced concrete stairs to several different homes and began work on the new block retaining wall. All concrete curb and walk has been finished east of King Street except for areas where consumers energy and the communication companies are relocating their utility poles. The work on the pole re-locations began this week as well. There is work planned for tomorrow, Saturday, June 1, 2019 for more retaining wall construction.
Here is the work we expect to see take place next week, the week of June 3, 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
Restoration and back-filling of areas disturbed will continue
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 drivable 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.
