Street Construction Projects
This page is the central source for updates on the street and road improvement projects happening within the City of Fenton. That includes neighborhood street improvements paid for by voter-approved bonds and those paid for by other funding sources.
Neighborhood Street Improvement Project
Like many projects statewide, we are facing shortages of concrete pipe, concrete structures and cast-iron structures for the underground sewer and stormwater work. Waldorf has been working with multiple suppliers to obtain the materials.
Part of the reason for the shortages is that after the pandemic, multiple funding sources were made available for improving roads and water quality. That’s great for Michigan, but a challenge for planners and contractors. For example, one type of material in short supply is ductile iron for water main projects. Wait times are as much as 44 weeks for certain sizes of pipe material.
Attached is a revised schedule of where the contractor plans to start concrete work (sidewalk and curb at intersections) and road paving where underground work is not needed. Though it doesn’t get underground work finished first, it does keep hope alive that the project can be substantially complete by mid-November.
Our engineering team, OHM Advisors, has assigned Paul Acciavatti as the engineering supervisor for the project. He will be the on-site contact who will advise you when construction impacts access to your driveway. Acciavatti will contact residents by knocking on doors and leaving information if residents aren't home.
Staging and construction began on Monday August 1st. The contractor, our engineering team and city staff meet bi-weekly during construction for progress meetings, where updates will be posted on the city website and emailed to you shortly after each progress meeting.
As always, you can call Department of Public Works Director Dan Brissoin at 810-629-2261 with any questions or concerns.
