Road Improvement Project
After several years of collaborating with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), it is with great excitement to be able to move forward with the M-22 and East Main Street Watermain & Road Improvement Project. We realize that this project will be an inconvenience and we apologize; however, updating the watermain and water service lead connections will be a significant enhancement to our water distribution system and partnering with MDOT for street corridor improvements will be a visual and functional improvement that will be enjoyed by all. In addition to the water main and water service lead updates that will be occurring, the street corridor will receive new storm water distribution, sidewalk, concrete curb & gutter and asphalt pavement. The greenspace area will be landscaped along with decorative streetlighting being installed at each intersection. Plans and specifications can be viewed at Frankfort City Hall.
The M-22 road section from 7th Street to Lake Street (A & W) will be closed to through traffic starting the week of April 5, 2021. It is anticipated that on or before April 12, 2021 the entire road section, including curb & gutter, sidewalks and concrete driveways will be removed to accommodate the project. Please use the alley or side street to access your home during this project. Emergency vehicles will have access to your dwelling, upon need.
To minimize the impact of deliveries, it is recommended to place your street address numbers in a visible location adjacent to the alley. If you have a garage along the alley, this may be the best location to place the address numbering. There will be no change associated with the normal garbage pickup and spring clean-up. Spring clean-up this year will commence on Monday, May 10th.
Construction activity will occur six days per week, Monday through Saturday. The workday Monday through Friday will be 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and the workday on Saturday will be 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. No work will take place on May 29th, May 31st, July 3rd, July 5th, September 4th and September 6th. It is anticipated that this project will be fully completed by the end of October.
