Grand River lane closures begin next week in Howell

Drivers through Downtown Howell will be dodging construction barrels starting next week.

According to a press release from the City, lane closure along Grand River Avenue in will be in place beginning Tuesday September 6, to allow for improvement work on the East Grand River Water Main.

The lane closure will be implemented starting Tuesday at 7 a.m. and run from National to Barnard Street. Additional lane closures will take place throughout the project. Traffic will be maintained throughout the duration of the lane closure, which is anticipated to last approximately 2 months; however, officials say that time frame is subject to change.

The East Grand River Water Main improvement project is part of the City’s ongoing updates to the water system, which includes replacing the existing water main and leads along East Grand River Avenue from Barnard Street to Lucy Road.

The project will replace an existing 4”, 6”, and 8” water main with a new, 12” water main. Additionally, existing water service leads will be replaced up to and including the existing curb stop. The new water main will be directionally drilled to minimize disruption to the project area. Any damaged sections of road, sidewalk and curb will be removed and replaced, and all disturbed grass will be graded, seeded, and watered.

Anyone with questions and/or concerns, is asked to contact Department of Public Services Deputy Director Mike Spitler at 517-546-7510, or mspitler@cityofhowell.org.
