Workers began mobilization of the $2 million project this week.
"The DDA project will have two distinct segments — the 168th/Johnson intersection, which must be completed by Aug. 29 so as not to impact (Grand Haven school) bus transports,” Township Manager Bill Cargo said, “and the remaining portion, which must be completed by Oct. 31 to ensure the (asphalt) plants are still open.”
The project includes complete reconstruction of the street surface, installation of stormwater curb and gutter systems, and other improvements. A new water main will also be installed beneath the roadway, as the township plans to replace 4,300 feet of 12-inch, cast-iron pipe.
Township officials said early on in the process that the overall scope of work would be similar to what the City of Grand Haven did for recent improvements along Beechtree Street.
Cargo said the schedule for the first segment — the 168th/Johnson intersection — is as follows:
— Mobilization: this week through Aug. 4
— Removals: Aug. 5-6
— Storm sewer work: Aug. 7-13
— Earth work and grading: Aug. 14-18
— Concrete work: Aug. 19-21
— New aggregate base: Aug. 22-26
— Asphalt paving with markings: Aug. 27-29
