Streetscape Update June 19, 2015 | Get ready for Fenton Freedom Fest and Fenton ArtWalk


June 19, 2015

We are starting to see the Streetscape Project take shape. The curb was poured this week on

Shiawassee and LeRoy and is expected to be poured on Mill Street on Tuesday. The sewers were also lined this week. Gutter pans will be installed on these streets next week. Concrete for the sidewalk will also begin to be poured on Shiawassee and LeRoy. Concrete will also be poured on the bridge at the Shiawassee River. If you drive on the bridge, you will observe that the road grade is very narrow as this is necessary to complete the pavement Downtown Fenton, MIconstruction on the bridge. Please be mindful and watch your speeds in that area. It is unsure what day next week when the work will occur at the bridge, but when it does, the bridge will be closed. The public will be notified prior to the work beginning. Champagne-Marx currently does not plan to close Mill Street when the curb is installed next week.

Champagne-Marx apologizes for the road closures this week but believed it was necessary to expedite the curb installation and lining of the sewers. There was signage indicating the road closures, however, barricades were kept open due to the large amount of construction trucks entering and leaving the site for the tedious work required installing the curbs. They understand this caused confusion but they utilized their work force to keep construction moving rather than stationing them to keep the construction zone closed.
As always, please be safe and mindful of your surroundings in the construction zone. If you have questions please free to
