This week is Week 16 of the improvements to Sherman Boulevard in Muskegon Heights. Please remember that Sherman Boulevard is closed to thru traffic. Please use side streets to get to your home or business to reduce traffic on Sherman as much as possible for the safety of the construction workers.


Work completed this past week:

  • The road was cut for the pavement removals for the new decorative crosswalks at Sanford, Peck, Maffett, Baker, Leahy and Hoyt (17 total new decorative crosswalks)
  • All manhole and water valve structures have now been lowered for the entire road making it ready for milling
  • All of the road patches are now filled in with compacted road gravel and most all have been patched with he base course of asphalt
  • Four of the 17 crosswalks above had pavement removed and road gravel placed and compacted
  • Milling of the pavement has been completed between Glade and Sanford (to be finished this afternoon)
