Repairs to Harvey Street are OK’d

Just in time for the streets of downtown Plymouth to fill with thousands of visitors for the Fall Festival, construction on Harvey Street has been scheduled. 

Plymouth City Commission member during their regular meeting last week, approved several contracts for the 2021 Harvey Street construction project. 

The planned construction will close Harvey Street between Ann Arbor Trail and Penniman. 

The project will include new water mains, new sanitary sewers, new storm sewers and a new roadway surface.

Also among the approvals by commissioners was the authorization of several temporary and permanent easements, approval of the construction contract with Pro-Line Asphalt, and the approval of new mast arms and pedestrian signals at both Ann Arbor Trail and Penniman. The project is expected to begin in August although the mast arms and new pedestrian signals aren't expected to be installed until spring of 2022 due to supply chain issues, according to officials . 

Construction teams plan to meet with residents and businesses near the construction site during the next weeks to present the scope of the project and discuss the impact of the closure of Harvey Street may or may not affect particular businesses.
