Work on Abbey Lane and Ingalls Street is underway, with concrete work and milling of asphalt occuring the week of the 14th. The plan is to have substantial completion before school starts. There is more rain that is typical for August in the forecast that we hope we can work through.
We are still unable to pin down the contractor that was approved to apply the cape seal to the streets slated for preventative maintanance. This work was to begin on July 25th and has still not commenced. Once the contractor begins, all work should be completed within two or three business days and cause minimal disruption.
Reconstruction efforts will be in full swing soon for Chesterfield, Winston, and Worchester. This process will include total street, curb, drive approach, and sidewalk removal and replacement. There will be pronounced dust, noise, and access issues. Please work with our contractor to complete this as painlessly as possible. If you are experiencing issues that appear to be outside the expected scope of a reconstruction, please contact the city office at 810.635.4464.
Water Outage Wednesday, Aug. 2nd
Water will be off tomorrow 8/2/17 approximately 8:30 am until around 3:00 pm on the following streets:
Seymour from Young to Miller
Chesterfield from Daval to Eaton & Natalie
July Street Update Supplement
Preventative maintenance on streets slated for the slurry seal is expected to occur between July 25th and Juily 28th.
Ingalls Street and Abbey Lane are slated for resurfacing. This will include some curb replacement, milling of the top asphalt layer, and replacement with new asphalt. Ingalls Street, between School and Fairchild is proposed for narrowing, which will include a new curb and sidewalk installation on the north side. This change will eliminate onstreet parking, increase pedestrian safety, and lower the design speed. This project is expected to be substantially complete in mid-September.
July Street Update
The city will be completing a ‘cape seal’ project on the following streets:
Brady: Ingalls to Miller
Ford: Ingalls to Miller
Hayes: Ingalls to Miller
The contractor intends to begin July 25th and complete all work by July 27th. The treatment will include chip seal application with a top coat of asphalt slurry. For those in the downtown area, this surface treatment will resemble the maintenance that occurred approximately eight years ago. This form of maintenance has an expected life of 5-10 years.
The application of this surface treatment will close the streets to through traffic and will limit drive access during application for limited periods of time.
