Construction Schedule

This is a large project that is planned to be completed in two phases starting on March 22, 2021. Below is a tentative construction schedule that is likely to change. The schedule will be updated throughout the project and will be communicated so that you are aware of when your area may be impacted.

  • Phase 1 – Southern Avenue to Merrill Avenue: March 22 – June 25
  • Phase 2 – Laketon Avenue to Southern Avenue: June 28 – September 1

 

Work will generally be conducted between the hours of 7:00AM and 7:00PM on Monday through Friday, with possible work on Saturdays. The work will be completed by Kamminga & Roodvoets of Grand Rapids, Michigan. For the safety of all residents and construction crews, we ask that residents stay out of the construction area during and after work hours. Be aware of construction equipment in the area.

 

Access

During each phase, 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.

 

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 attempt to avoid damaging irrigation systems however if they are damaged, they will repair them.

 

Mail

The Contractor, Kamminga & Roodvoets, 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 house.

 

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.
