Word On The Street - Project Update 5.6.20
Updated: May 20
At the Drahner Rd. intersection the pavement is completely removed. Storm sewer and water main work has started, and will be completed by mid to end of next week. Jim Sharpe, township engineer will be onsite to review the work with Dan's & MDOT. Northbound M-24 traffic is being detoured for both East and West Drahner. Southbound traffic can still make a right hand turn onto West Drahner. The intersection closure at East Drahner will be done around Memorial Day.
Skip patching was done on Monday and Tuesday of this week (5/4 & 5/5). They will be re-striping Glaspie and adding a center turn lance prior to the main detour going into effect. At the completion of the project, Glaspie will be milled, resurfaced, and the center turn lane will not be staying.
Light pole removal in the downtown has started, and is being coordinated with the DPW. The light poles are going to be refurbished once they are taken down to be ready to be reinstalled at a later time in the project. Concerns about lighting in the downtown area is being addressed, and the Village Manager is working with MDOT.
Letters to business owners regarding the Vibration Monitoring for their buildings were mailed out last week to update them about the scheduling. The Village is collecting current contact information from business owners to assist in the scheduling of these appointments . Vibration Monitoring will be conducted the week of May 11th. If you are one of these businesses, please send your name, business name & address email, and best number to reach you at to firstname.lastname@example.org. A listing of business addresses can be found here.
Consumers is still unable to complete the tie-ins for the work north of Burdick St. Once the COVID restrictions are lifted, they will be able to enter residences & businesses. This is forecasted for end of May.
Just a reminder to please follow posted detour routes and refrain from using neighborhood side streets. The side streets are being monitored by police.
Thank you for your continued patience, driving safely and keeping workers safe. We are all in this together. #OxfordStrong
