Road and infrastructure improvements began on Elizabeth Street in the development known as the Wolverine Addition on Tuesday, July 22. As of Friday, July 19, the City reported the pouring of the curb and gutter on Adolph Street was poured and expected to be completed by the end of the day. “Crews have been working at a very good pace and we are pleased with the project,” reported City Manager Michael Young.
Young said he and Department of Public Services Director Jamie Davis are evaluating additional road projects that were budgeted in the new fiscal year. The City will piggyback on the Kent County Road Commission’s bid process where they have gone through detailed bidding on a square footage basis. Their apparent low bidder has been selected and has provided the City with prices based on the county’s bid prices.
