Here's an update on the summer's construction projects:

Bonnell Avenue - Lake Drive to Hall Street.  Includes water main replacement, limited amounts of sanitary sewer replacement, new storm sewer construction from Lake to Darby, sidewalk and curb repairs and street restoration. The project is scheduled to begin on Monday July 30, 2012 and expected to be completed by mid October.  Bonnell Avenue will be closed to all thru traffic during construction. Access will be maintained for local residences along the project.

Status: The project began on Monday July 30th as planned. Completed thru the first week of construction was the placement of the new water main along Bonnell from Lake Drive to Darby Avenue. As the new water main construction progresses, it will first require testing before home water services are connected to it. This process will require short periods of time when home owners will be without water. Notice will be provided to the effected homeowners beforehand.

Boston Street - Breton Road to the west city limits (near Laurel Avenue).  Includes curb repair and street grinding and resurfacing. The project is scheduled to begin on Tuesday September 4, 2012 and is expected to be completed within approximately 3 weeks thereafter. Boston Street will be closed to all thru traffic during construction. A detour route will be established along Plymouth Road, Hall Street, and Breton Road. Access will be maintained for local residences along the project.

Status: Construction has not commenced yet.

Wealthy Street - Plymouth Road to Sherman Street.  Includes placement of a "storm water separator" located within the intersection of Wealthy Street and Laurel Avenue. The separator removes roadway and parking lot trash as well as petroleum droppings from traffic and parked vehicles which enter an existing storm sewer that drains into Fisk Lake. The project also includes resurfacing Wealthy Street. The project is scheduled to begin approximately Thursday August 16, 2012 and is expected to be completed by the 1st of October. Wealthy Street will be closed to all thru traffic during construction. A detour route will be established along Plymouth Road, Lake Drive and Lovett Street. Access will be maintained for local residences along the project. Access to the hospital will be maintained via the Plymouth Road direction only.
