City of Fenton, Construction update Shiawassee Avenue.
Fenton, MI: In August, the City of Fenton began water main update work along Shiawassee Avenue from Bent Oak to Adelaide in preparation for upcoming road resurfacing work. Several residential water service connections were relocated from an old, galvanized water main to a newer water main that runs along the north side of Shiawassee. A new water main was installed on George Street and the project included some sewer repair work under Shiawassee. All galvanized water main in the project area has been abandoned where this phase of the project was completed in late October.
Consumer Energy will begin a gas main replacement project along Shiawassee from Rounds to Adelaide where traffic control and equipment staging started this week. Consumers Energy reports the replacement gas main will take about two months to complete and will include some residential gas service line replacement along Shiawassee and other residential locations in the city. Consumers Energy will notify residential property owners who are affected by the gas line replacement program.
Once all underground utility upgrades are completed, the City will resume the street resurfacing project that was originally planned for this fall. Shiawassee will be repaved from Bent Oak to Adelaide in spring 2021.
Project updates are posted on the city website, www.cityoffenton.org.
