    Road Design and Construction (Sheldon to LaGrave)
    Pending Construction

    Tentative Construction Schedule

    Please click here take our quick project survey, or contact us at 616-456-3000 to do the survey over the phone, so you can share your suggestions for the project and about any flooding, water pressure issues, sanitary sewer backups, or existing sprinkler systems.   ​

    Many of the following design options are not decided upon and are meant to serve as a starting point for the meeting conversation. The project may:
    • reconstruct the road and return it to its existing configuration with sharrow pavement marking symbols.
    • install a new water main.
    • install new catch basins for stormwater.
    • replace the old brick street surface with a new brick surface.
    • upgrade sidewalks and corner ramps to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
    • add bike parking where needed.
    • upgrade the street lights, pending funding.
    • plant street trees to retain and soak stormwater into the ground to filter pollutants and reduce runoff entering natural bodies of water. 

    Business Guide
    As we work to improve the street, we understand that businesses are sensitive to construction. For this reason, we’ve created a guide containing tips and tricks for businesses during construction.
