Davis Street Reconstruction
City of Allegan
Allegan’s sanitary and storm sewers under Davis Street had reached the end of their useful service life, and the street had begun to deteriorate. Replacing these items was a part of the 2003 Capital Improvement Plan, but funding was not available until 2009.
For the reconstruction, P&N designed and oversaw construction for:
- 900 feet of sanitary collection sewer
- 800 feet of storm sewer
- 1,100 feet of street reconstruction, including curb and gutter, hot-mix asphalt pavement, sidewalk repairs, and ADA ramp upgrades
- A 600-square-foot modular block retaining wall
Because Davis Street is in a residential neighborhood, all through traffic was detoured around the area. P&N designed the improvements so they would be easy to construct, and the project was substantially completed within 4 weeks.
During the design phase, P&N recommended water system improvements within the project limits so that future pavement cuts would not be required during repairs. The project site is adjacent to an MDOT trunk line (M-40/M-89).
The project was funded by an MDOT Small Urban Grant. P&N’s existing relationship with MDOT enabled the project team to obtain MDOT right-of-way permits with very little administrative time and expense.
