Construction Projects

The below information provides detailed information regarding all of the current and upcoming publicly-owned infrastructure projects for roads, pathways, water & sewer, storm drains, etc.

2018-2019 Infrastructure Projects:

  • Ludlow: Construction on Ludlow began on July 16th. The road is closed to through traffic, but remains open to residents. Access to the Community House and the businesses on Ludlow will also remain at all times during the course of construction. The anticipated completion date is mid-November 2018.  Weekly updates are posted at
  • Sanitary Sewer Lining: A majority of the pipes have been cleaned and lining is approximately 30% complete. The MDOT permit has been issued for the lining project on Main Street. These projects will involve some temporary lane closures, traffic shifts, and limited night work.
  • Sanitary Sewer Open-Cut Replacements: Lounsbury and Fraser Street repairs have been completed and contractors will be working on restoration issues. Wilcox and Fourth Street are scheduled to be paved prior to the end of June. Additional open cut work will be scheduled on the alleyway east of Main Street (north and south of Second Street), First Street (Taylor to the western City Limits), Pine Street (north of Fourth), and University east of Main Street. Dates for this work have not been set as of the date of this publication as the City is still working out the scope of services and associated costs with the contractor.
  • Sanitary Sewer Manhole Repairs: The contractor has begun working on the manhole repairs that are required in pavement areas. The contractor will be working on 15-20 manholes at a time. This work will involve temporary closures around the manholes that could last up to seven (7) days to allow for cure time on the concrete collars.
  • Sidewalk Repairs: The Sidewalk repair contractor is wrapping up the 2018 repair work. All restoration should be completed in early August.
  • Albertson/Romeo Realignment: An informational meeting was held with the public on Thursday June 7th, 2018. The City will begin working with MDOT on potential conceptual plans and will begin the design process over the Summer of 2018. Anticipated construction for this project is the Spring of 2020.
