Cottonwood Drive reconstruction update

Contractors wrapped up paving and lane striping operations on Cottonwood Drive this week.

There are still several minor punch list items to be addressed before the project is officially done. This includes painting turn arrows, turn striping and stop bars on the road, as well as adjusting the traffic signal timing at the Baldwin/Cottonwood intersection.

We anticipate that both of these items will be done early next week. Please note that all work is tentative and subject to change.

Until the project is complete, we ask that people use the official detour route: Baldwin Street/20th Avenue/Bauer Road.

The Ottawa County Road Commission appreciates everyone’s patience and cooperation as work to complete this project comes to a close.
