How Do I ...


Find Updates on the Michigan Avenue Construction Project


The concrete contractor is working on the remaining sidewalk at Jefferson and Michigan, plus the curb and sidewalk work on W. Michigan by Sycamore.  If it is not finished today it will be by Tuesday of next week.  This will wrap up the majority of the City’s portion of the project.


We still do not have a date for paving from MDOT, but have been told we are top priority once a crew becomes available. Once we know the date, we will pass on the information.



Things to know:
• No on-street parking will be allowed, within the construction areas, during each phase of the project. Please direct patrons to the public lots behind the buildings. Signs will be erected within the construction zone directing people to these public parking lots throughout the project.
• Water outages will be minimized as best we can. 
• When services are tied over into the new water main, individual businesses will experience a water outage of approximately one hour long. 
• We will either be hanging door tags or making personal contact prior to these outages to assist with scheduling as best we can. Being aware of where the contractor is working will help you to anticipate the timing of your individual service installation.
• The city has hired Stantec Consulting to assist us in field management of the project. Marc Hubbel with Stantec, will be on-site throughout the project and assist in notifications during the project. Additionally folks are welcome to contact the city at 269-781-5183 or the Engineering Department at 269-558-0323.
• If there are issues that occur that need to be addressed please contact city staff to work through the issue rather than talking with the contractor and their employees as they don’t always have the resources to deal with certain situations.
• Please keep in mind that construction schedules can be impacted by weather and other unanticipated issues that can create schedule delays. The City and our contractor are well aware of the frustrations that exist around construction project such as this and we will do our very best to communicate as efficiently as we can and try to minimize these disruptions.
