The City of Ludington will be reconstructing Loomis Street from Rath Avenue to Delia Street. This project will include full pavement removal and replacement, replacement of the water main and all water services, and replacement of the sanitary sewer and installation of street lighting.

The construction will be completed by Hallack Contracting of Hart, Michigan. Prein&Newhof will be providing construction observation and administration during the project on behalf of the City.


Construction Schedule

Construction is expected to begin on May 20, 2020 and will proceed throughout the summer with completion expected around September 18. Construction will begin on the west side of the project with completion of Loomis Street between Rath Avenue and James Street to be completed prior to July 4.



The affected roads will be closed but will stay accessible to residents in the immediate construction area throughout the project, except for short periods of time when pipe will be installed across the roads. Individual driveway access will be interrupted during periods of time for a few hours, but in all cases will be restored by the end of the workday. If access to your storefront will be affected by the construction, we will be contacting you individually to discuss access options and timing to minimize affects to your businesses.


Driveways and Restoration

Driveways that are disrupted during construction will be replaced at the same location, and equal in size and type to the existing drive.  Temporary driveway material will also be placed and maintained to provide access to residences during construction. Disturbed grass areas will be restored with topsoil, seed, fertilizer, and mulch.

If you have underground sprinklers installed along the road, please mark the heads and approximate locations of the pipe and if possible, remove the heads.



The Contractor will make the necessary arrangements with the postal service to assure uninterrupted mail delivery.


Garbage Pick-Up

The Contractor will make the necessary arrangements with the appropriate waste management companies to assure uninterrupted garbage pickup. Please write your name and address on your garbage bin in a visible location to assist in returning your bin to the proper property. Please make sure your bin is at your curb prior to 6:00PM the night before pick-up.


Water Services

Many of the water services within the project area will be replaced up to the meter in the building, or up to 18 inches into the building if the meter is located within the right-of-way. If your water service is scheduled for replacement, the contractor will be contacting you during the construction period to schedule your water service replacement. The contractor will temporarily require access into your building prior to and during installation.  Please see the flyer here for information regarding flushing and lead water services.
