Ten Mile expansion to be delayed until 2012

by BETH ALTENA

Members of the Rockford City Council were surprised to learn during their monthly meeting on Monday, June 13 that the Kent County Road Commission (KCRC) has pushed back the timeline on expanding Ten Mile Road from three lanes to five.

Because of restrictions on bidding portions of the project mandated by federal regulations, the project will not be started until Labor Day this year, much later than the original projected start date of June this year.

City Manager Michael Young said he had talked to the KCRC Director of Engineering Wayne Harroll earlier in the day and was told portions of the project, such as the shoulder work, grading and setting signals, may be done this year with the bulk of the actual road work beginning in April 2012. The project originally was slated to begin in June and be completed by September this year.
