Listed below are projects scheduled to be constructed during the 2017 and/or 2018 construction season (note: information is subject to change and will be periodically updated as these projects progress):
Cedar Street; Legion Drive to College Road (Alaiedon, Delhi, and Vevay Twps.) – Rehabilitation and resurfacing of existing concrete four lane divided highway by rubbilizing existing concrete pavement in-place and repaving with asphalt. This project also includes culvert/storm sewer replacement and consolidated single direction crossover construction. Northwest bound side is completed. Work on the southeast bound side currently being done. Traffic is being maintained with one lane in each direction on the NW bound side with access being maintained to all adjacent properties throughout construction. The various existing median cross-overs are being consolidated into one-way, indirect left turns with deceleration lanes for improved safety. The project will also include paved shoulders and drainage upgrades. Project completion is expected in early October dependent on weather and any other unforeseen circumstances.
Holt Road; Depot Street to US-127 (Delhi Twp) – Asphalt resurfacing, with widening and restriping for new turn lanes and new traffic signal at College Road intersection. Right turn lanes will be constructed on all four approaches, and the College Road approaches will be restriped to provide center left turn lanes. The existing Holt Road inner eastbound though/left lane will be converted to a dual-direction, exclusive left turn lane from College Road through the US-127 interchange. Construction started the week of July 17, 2017 and is expected to be completed in September, 2017. Traffic will be maintained with lane closures and traffic regulators during construction except for the following brief closures: College Road at Holt Road has been closed and is expected to re-open Monday, Aug. 14, with a new signal, and starting Monday, August 14, the railroad crossing immediately west of Depot Street will be closed for approximately one week to replace the railroad crossing.
Okemos Road; Jolly Rd Intersection (Meridian & Alaiedon Twps) - Intersection reconstruction and widening for right turn lanes, including concrete pavement overlay, storm sewer, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and new traffic signal. Bids were received in June 2017. Signal reconstruction, utility relocations, and other roadway preparation work is to be performed during the fall of 2017. Storm drain replacement along Jolly Road, turn lane construction, and all major resurfacing work will be performed starting early spring 2018 with completion currently expected by late July 2018. Motorists should expect multiple lane closures and traffic phasing during construction. Left turns will be prohibited at the intersection during construction, so all turning traffic will be detoured. Use of alternate routes will be posted and suggested.
Fitchburg Road; Leslie City Limits to Nims Road (Leslie & Bunker Hill Twps) – 4.3 miles of asphalt patching and resurfacing over chip seal interlayer, along with intersection curb and gutter, gravel shoulders, slope restoration, and pavement markings. Deteriorated culverts were replaced earlier this spring, and trees too close to the road have been removed to improve safety. Bids were received in June 2017 with construction expected to start August 21 and with completion expected in fall, 2017. Traffic will be maintained with lane closures and traffic regulators during the remainder of construction operations.
Sherwood Road; Zimmer Road to Williamston Road (Williamstown Twp) – 1.5 miles of asphalt resurfacing with chip seal interlayer, and culvert or sewer replacements. Trees too close to the road have been removed to improve safety. Late summer- fall 2017 construction is anticipated. Traffic may be detoured for culvert and storm sewer construction, and maintained with traffic regulators during remaining construction operations.
Elm Road; I-96 to Grand River Avenue (Leroy Twp) – 1 mile of asphalt resurfacing with chip seal interlayer, and culvert or sewer replacements. Trees too close to the road have been removed to improve safety. Late summer-fall 2017 construction is anticipated. Traffic may be detoured for culvert and storm sewer construction, and maintained with traffic regulators during remaining construction operations.
Zimmer Road crossing the Deer Creek (Wheatfield Twp) – Bridge replacement with prefabricated concrete arch culvert with approach reconstruction. Zimmer Road is closed during construction with traffic detoured. Construction now completed and the road is now open to traffic.
Columbia Road crossing the Grand River (Aurelius Twp) – Replace 3 span bridge with single span steel truss bridge with approach reconstruction. Fall 2017/Spring 2018 construction anticipated. This project was bid on July 7th, and has been awarded to Davis Construction of Lansing. Columbia Road will be closed from Monday, August 14 through early December 2017; all traffic will be detoured via posted route.
Jolly Road; Dobie Rd to Meridian Rd (Meridian & Alaiedon Twps) – 2.4 miles of asphalt recycling, widening for paved shoulders, grading, and HMA paving. Also includes two large culvert replacements near Every Road, which will require full road closures to traffic and detours. Trees will be removed as required for grading and clear zone safety improvements. Winter 2017/Spring 2018 Construction is anticipated. Traffic detours will be coordinated with the Okemos Road intersection project.
