GRAND HAVEN TWP. — A section of Lincoln Street between U.S. 31 and 144th Avenue will remain open amid resurfacing next week after contractors failed a quality test. 

The road was reopened Aug. 3 following construction projects that began in April. Officials from the Ottawa County Road Commission said it should remain open during resurfacing, with temporary lane closures and flagging. 

Work is tentatively scheduled to take place next week, beginning Monday, and will involve the removal and replacement of about 800 feet of the road surface on the east side of the project limits.

Dykstra Excavating Inc. of Grand Rapids was working on the project, which included an extension of sanitary sewer and construction of turn lanes for the new Stonewater development along Lincoln Street near Mariposa Avenue in Grand Haven Township.

Work began April 16 and was initially expected to wrap up in early June, but it was delayed when construction crews struck a culvert, which had to be replaced. Projects were delayed this summer as contractors awaited a permit from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and a new culvert for the replacement.

The road had been closed to traffic during the project.
