As Ric-Man Construction continues the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department 42-inch water main beneath 24 Mile Road in Shelby and Macomb townships, there remains three sections of road unpaved in Shelby Township.
These sections will remain unpaved until temperatures reach into the high 40s on a consistent basis once asphalt can be laid.
The sections will remain unpaved as crews install cross-connection valves between the new 42-inch main and the existing 36-inch main that runs parallel to the new pipe.
There will be temporary road closures posted by the Macomb County Department of Roads as these connections are installed. Ric-Man officials hope to have the first of these connections installed near the Macomb Orchard Trail by Christmas Day.
Crews will then move to install the valve near the Cherry Creek Golf and Banquet Center with hopes to have that complete by mid-January. The final valve connection will be installed near the 24 Mile and Schoenherr roads intersection by mid-February.
Along with the three stretches of unpaved roadway, crews will also finish pavement in the Mound and 24 Mile roads intersection in the spring and restripe the roadway to accommodate for a left-turn lane for eastbound and westbound traffic
Maintenance of the temporary roads will be performed by Ric-Man Construction. If you see any portions of the roadway in need of maintenance please contact the Shelby Township Supervisor’s Office at 586-731-5154.
Ric-Man Construction issued a chart outlining all planned phases of the project as it relates to the phases' tentative start and end dates. That chart can be found here.
