CAP1630 Special Assessment Paving Improvements

S. Edison Avenue

The contractor has installed the majority of the water main pipe on S. Edison Avenue. The contractor plans to install new water main under 11 Mile Road by boring under the roadway. This will require a traffic shift on 11 Mile Road, with at least one lane of traffic open in each direction.

Wrenford Road

The contractor plans to begin excavation and grading work on Wrenford Road the week of April 24th.

Massoit Road

The contractor may also begin excavation and grading on Massoit Road later next week, depending on weather conditions.

CAP1535 Sherman Drive Construction

The contractor has finished paving the section of Sherman Drive between 11 Mile Road and N. West Street. The remaining concrete at the intersection of N. West Street and Sherman Drive is planned be placed early next week.

The contractor plans to pave the north half of Sherman Drive from Forestdale Road to the east with concrete the week of April 24th (green area below). The new concrete will need to cure for approximately one week. After the north half is cured, the contractor will pave the south half of this section and also the driveway approaches on the north half. This section of Sherman Drive will be closed to traffic until the concrete on both sides is completely cured.

While the north half of Phase I cures, the contractor plans to begin excavation and grading from N. West Street to Maxwell Avenue. Sherman Drive will be closed between N. West Street and Maxwell Avenue, but the intersection at Maxwell Avenue will remain open.
