Road Closings

Shoesmith Road – Between Shoeman Road and Green Road in Meridian and Williamstown Townships will be closed daily during the daytime only until further notice to accommodate road side ditch reconstruction.  

Holt Road; Grovenburg Rd to Aurelius Rd (Delhi Township) - 3.1 miles of cold milling, paving interlayer, and hot mix asphalt (HMA) resurfacing, along with storm sewer and curb and gutter repairs, sidewalk and ADA sidewalk ramps. Construction is anticipated to start early August, with completion by early October.   Traffic will be maintained with lane closures and traffic regulator (flag) control for the majority of the work with delays expected f(there may be limited closures during off peak periods to replace storm sewer pipe crossings).

Holt Road Project Update:

Eifert Road and the driveways have been paved, as well as that the final striping has been completed.  This will result in a configuration change from 4 lanes to 3 lanes between Eifert Road and Aurelius Road.  Also, the westbound outside right lane at Aurelius Road will be changed to a right turn only.  We are in the process of fabricating ‘Yield to Ped’ signs for the Kahres Road intersection.  Other changes: the westbound right turn only lane at Kahres Road/W. Campus Dr will be extended to the school drive, and a right turn only will also be painted at the Grovenburg Road intersection. 

The Road Department is expecting retaining wall construction and final restoration this week of the November 14th.  The Road Department is also hoping to get signal actuation turned on at Eifert  Road and Kahres Road this week as well, and Consumers Energy is supposed to start on their relocation of utilities at Washington Road also in preparation for our new signal installation.  We also need to retrofit the 2009 ADA ramps east of Eifert Road to meet current standards.

The sealcoat planned for Heatherton Drive to Aurelius Road will be postponed until spring as well as anticipated street lighting installed by Consumers Energy.

Hagadorn Road and Mt. Hope Road intersection (Meridian Township) - Approximately ½ mile of intersection widening and resurfacing, including cold milling, hot in place recycling and  HMA resurfacing, including curb and gutter repair and ADA sidewalk ramp upgrades.  A new southbound dedicated left turn lane will be constructed within the existing median, allowing the existing turn lane to become a through lane to improve traffic flow.  The lane drop taper south of the railroad tracks will be extended to improve traffic merging south of the intersection.  The project is expected to start early July and be open to traffic by late August, with minor work remaining into fall.

Project Update:

Railroad extension has finally been completed.  The goal is to hopefully complete final sidewalk, ramp, and restoration by Thanksgiving.

Aurelius Road, Kinneville Rd, and Byrum Rd, and Bellevue Rd to Barnes Rd (Onondaga and Aurelius Townships) - 5.3 miles of cold milling, hot in place recycling, and HMA resurfacing and gravel shoulders, along with culvert and storm sewer replacement, and curb and gutter intersection improvements.  Construction expected to start mid-June, with completion by Mid-September.  Through traffic will be detoured via Bellevue Road, Onondaga Road, and Barnes Road.  Local traffic will be maintained with traffic regulator (flag) control.

Marsh Road Bridge Over CN Railroad Crossing - Ingham County Road Department announces that contract work to replace existing bridge beams, deck, and railing (superstructure) for the Marsh Road Bridge over the GTW/CN Railroad, between Franklin Street and Haslett Road in Meridian Township, is scheduled to start Monday, March 21, 2016.  The project is scheduled to be completed by Labor Day, 2016.

The bridge superstructure replacement is to be accomplished employing half-width construction during most of the construction.  During half-width construction, one lane in each direction will be maintained over one half of the bridge while the other half is reconstructed.  Once the reconstructed half is ready, traffic will be switched over to the new half so the old half can be reconstructed.  In mid-August, when the concrete deck is poured to join the two new bridge halves, the bridge will be closed to all traffic for a week to 10 days to allow the concrete deck to cure.  A news release will be issued to inform the public when the deck “closure pour” and required detour is planned.

This bridge currently has reduced truck weight signs posted due to deterioration of the 52 year old structure.  During construction, the bridge will accommodate all vehicles, including passenger vehicles, light trucks, and school busses.  Heavily loaded trucks, exceeding the posted weights, must find a different route.  

Project Update:

The project finalization list has now been completed and traffic control equipment will be removed shortly.

Park Lake Road; Grand River Ave (M-43) to Merritt Dr (Meridian Township) - 1.6 miles of cold milling and hot in place recycling and HMA resurfacing, including curb and gutter repair and ADA sidewalk ramp upgrades.  The project includes Meridian Township sanitary sewer repair work, which will require traffic detour via Grand River Avenue (M-43) to Okemos Road to Haslett Road.  Construction anticipated to start the week of July 25th and open to traffic by early October.

Project Update

The culvert replacement is on hold due to an unexpected utility conflict.  A new culvert is currently being fabricated.  The Road Department will do it’s best to have the road paved by Thanksgiving, but more than likely it will be completed by the 1st week December.
