This week, Brussee/Brady Inc. and Caporossi Construction will continue excavating the walking/bike path and drive entrance. The excavation on the new pavilion locations is complete. Consumers Energy will be on site within the next week to disconnect and remove the power poles.
The weather continues to play a large part in the restoration of Merrill Park. Brussee/Brady Inc. and Caporossi Construction have and will continue to do their best to work around the weather.
As the project continues to move forward, the contractors will begin constructing each new location. During this time traffic at and or around the area may increase. You may also experience an occasional delay during your commute. If you do experience a delay, please be patient as these delays are for the safety of both the contractors and the public.
As the project continue to move forward, weekly update will be provided to the public. We will also include any known traffic delays for the upcoming week.
