Reminder: Street Construction Open House Tonight at 5 p.m.

Bad street surface in Fenton

At Monday's meeting, the Fenton City Council approved the city's funding for the Main Street reconstruction project, which will make repairs on about a mile of road from Leroy Street to Eddy Lake Road. Details about the project:

What's being done? 0.92 miles of asphalt surface milling, joint and crack repair, curb and gutter repair and hot mix asphalt resurfacing.  Sidewalk improvements at street intersections and pavement markings are included.

Contractor:  Lois Kay Contracting, Saginaw, Michigan. 

Schedule:  A construction schedule will be provided by the MDOT as soon as it is available. Work is planned for this summer/fall with completion by mid-November. 

Detour Route:  There is no official detour route. The road will remain open to two-way traffic during construction.  Motorists may experience delays during working hours, and alternate routes may sometimes be advisable. 

The Council had to approve the city's funding for the project because estimated costs came in about $300,000 over the bid price due to inflationa and material scarcity. The project received federal funding in the amount of $ 935,225.00.  The project is administered through the MDOT. The city’s estimated cost for the project is $ 548,170.09.

Open House for Local Street Program Summer Construction

The City of Fenton is hosting a Local Road Program Open House Meeting in the Van Gilder Room of the Fenton Community Center, 150 S. Leroy Street, on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  General information about the scope of work and timing of this year’s work will be discussed.  Please join us to meet city staff and our engineering team that will oversee this year’s project. Light refreshments will be served.  

 About the program:

 Local Road Program, 2022 Construction Season

What's being done: Year one of the Local Road Program will reconstruct First, Second, Third, Fourth, Sixth, N. Oak, Thurber and N. Howard Streets.  Critical sewer repairs on Walnut Street near Second Street and sewer repairs are included, as this infrastructure is located under the streets.   Several existing combined sewers will be brought up to standard, and manholes and storm drains will be repaired.   Sidewalk-at-street intersections will be updated to meet current standards. Replacement street signs and pavement markings are included in the project. 

Contractor: Waldorf and Sons, Inc., Mt. Morris, Michigan

Schedule: Staging and underground excavation work is planned to start as early as the week of June 27th with substantial completion by November 15. Depending on weather, final grading and lawn restoration may be completed in spring of 2023.

Detour Route: No detour route is planned.  The contractor and site supervisor will advise each homeowner when driveway access will be limited or restricted as work progresses though the project area. 

 Local Road Program, Future Phases

This map shows what will take place in 2023 and 2024 under Phase I (Years one to three) of the 10-year program, which is funded by the sale of bonds approved by voters in 2021. The plan for 2025 and beyond will be prepared based on road conditions and needs in 2024, as the relative condition of different streets can change over time based on usage, original materials used and more.

Torrey Road Improvement

This road is eligible for federal transportation funds, which cover the majority of the cost. It is not part of the local streets bonding program.

What's being done: Just under one mile of pavement rehabilitation. Workers will pulverize, crush and shape the existing asphalt roadway with a new hot mix asphalt surface. Improvements include new passing flare at Georgetown Parkway, guardrail improvements at the S. Long Lake bridge, new sidewalk (east side of road) from North Road to Georgetown Parkway.

Contractor:  Ace Saginaw Paving, Saginaw, Michigan

Schedule: Construction to start early July with re-open to traffic,  late October 2022.

Detour: Road will remain open to local traffic for access to Georgetown Parkway and local businesses in the construction area. The posted detour route is North Road to Lahring Road to Torrey Road and vice versa.
