City of Fenton, Silver Lake Road Resurfacing Project
Fenton, MI: The City of Fenton and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) have awarded a paving contract to Ace Saginaw Paving Company based out to Flint, Michigan to perform 1.53 miles of hot mix asphalt cold milling and resurfacing, concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk repair, guardrail ends, pedestrian signals, sign updates and pavement markings. MDOT has scheduled repair work on the US-23 bridge over Silver Lake Road and North Road that is expected to begin in early July where the first phase will be maintenance work to the understructure and piers of the bridge.
The project limits for Silver Lake roadwork are from the western city limit (Fenton/Linden border) to Poplar Street.
The week of June 14, 2021, the contractor will begin mobilization, traffic control placement and concrete curbing/sidewalk work. Traffic will remain open to two-way traffic during this time.
Due to MDOT maintenance work currently underway on the Owen Road bridge over US-23, work in the roadway of Silver Lake Road will begin the week of July 5th to allow sufficient time for the Owen Road bridge to be completed. This scheduling strategy ensures the Owen Road bridge is fully open to traffic prior to starting Silver Lake Road resurfacing work.
The week of July 5th, the contractor has scheduled Silver Lake Road for Road Closed to Through Traffic from E. Broad Street in Linden to Silver Parkway in Fenton. This section of road will be open to local traffic only. The road closure is necessary to allow for reconstruction of a portion of Silver Lake Road that runs along the lake near the Fenton/Linden border.
The posted detour route will be E. Broad Street/Silver Lake Road in Linden to south on S. Bridge Street/Linden Road to east on Owen Road to north on Silver Parkway to Silver Lake Road and vice-versa.
The project is expected to be paved and re-open to traffic in early September with project completion by late September. As with any road project, weather may impact the construction schedule.
