- CONANT AVENUE RESURFACING
Al’s Asphalt Paving of Taylor is nearing completion on the resurfacing and curb replacement work on Conant Avenue from Wood Street to East Third Street. The first layer of paving has been completed, though production issues at the asphalt plant this past week pushed completion of the final 1-1/2 inches of pavement until this coming week. Remaining work besides paving includes raising manholes to their final grades flush with the roadway, and this work is expected to last 2-3 more weeks, depending on weather and staging for traffic maintenance purposes.
- UNION STREET RESURFACING
Al’s Asphalt Paving has resurfaced Union Street between Eighth and Third, and the roadway is now open to traffic. Remaining work includes raising manholes in the roadway to their final grades, and this work is expected to last 2-3 more weeks, depending on weather and staging for traffic maintenance purposes.
- NORTH MACOMB STREET RESURFACING
Al’s Asphalt Paving has resurfaced North Macomb Street between Elm and Grove, and the roadway is open to traffic, with all work completed except for raising manholes in the roadway to grade. During manhole adjustments, there may be times when individual blocks will be closed to traffic for the safety of the workers, but the roadway will be open when workers are not present. This work is expected to last 2-3 more weeks, depending on weather and staging for traffic maintenance purposes.
- HOLIDAY TREE LIGHTING
The Downtown Development Authority is hosting the 25th Annual downtown tree lighting event on Saturday, November 18 from 4 to 8 P.M. This event will close East First Street between Monroe and Macomb Streets and Washington Street between Second and Front Streets during the event. There is no posted detour.
