Fenton, MI: The Local Street Program will begin its second year with Phase II in spring of 2023. City Council has approved the costs associated with OHM’s engineering and design services with geotechnical investigative services provided by G2 consulting group.
This 10-year road improvement program includes rehabilitation of the pavement surface, storm and sanitary sewer repairs, curb/gutter repairs, driveway replacements where the road grade has changed as applicable, and sidewalk improvements at intersections to meet current ADA standards for residential roads. While the roadways are anticipated to be pulverized and resurfaced, full reconstruction of the road will be proposed where deemed necessary.
The work from the first year of the road improvement program is anticipated to be substantially completed by June. Supply and staffing issues have caused a short delay in the completion of the project. The roads currently under construction are ready for asphalt delivery and work will wrap up quickly, weather pending.
Phase II to be completed in 2023 includes the following Numbered Street Subdivisions and Residential Roads:
Streets in the Elmwood Subdivision also, East Street (First to Ninth), Walnut (First to Sixth), Center (Main to Second), 4th Street and 9th Street (East to Oak), State Road (Adelaide to city limit), Park Steet (Shiawassee to S. Holly), Elizabeth (Shiawassee to Adelaide), Rockwell (Adelaide to Davis), Davis (Shiawassee to Cemetery entrance), and Henry Street.
In addition to the street construction, the following watermains will be replaced: State Road, Elmwood Subdivision, and one block of South Oak between Rockwell and Elizabeth streets.
The total construction cost of the road project is estimated at $4.5 million dollars and the watermain replacements are anticipated to cost approximately $5.0 million dollars. OHM’s design services are proposed not to exceed $178,000.00 and includes project initiation, preliminary planning, and final plan development to be advertised for construction bidding. G2 Consulting group will provide Geotechnical investigative services that evaluate the existing pavement and subgrade soil for a flat rate of $12,000.00.
