Weather permitting, this is approximately a 4-week process from start to finish and is tentatively scheduled between Aug. 11-17, 2018.

The road will not be closed as the work will be done with lane closures and traffic control. The resurfacing will take place in several stages and may take some time to complete. Inclement weather will also be a factor in the timely completion of the project. The end of project being the shoulders restored to meet the level of the new road surface.

Step #1
Remove the right-of-way portion of driveways. We allow a 3 inch drop at the end. (see paragraph below)

Step #2
Mill existing asphalt surface at ends and intersections.

Step #3
Adjust manhole castings if applicable. They will stick up above pavement about 2inches.

Step #4
The road will be resurfaced with new asphalt.

Your mail box may be moved and readjusted to a height as specified by the mail carrier.

If you have items within the road right-of-way that are near the existing roadway such as irrigation, sprinkler heads, or landscaping, please make arrangements to remove these items. You may flag the irrigation lines, sprinkler heads, or other items and the contractor may make an effort to avoid them. However, neither the contractor nor the road commission will be held responsible should any damage occur to these items within the road right-of-way.

Within approximately two weeks after paving is complete restoration of the shoulders and driveway ends to the level of the new road surface. During this time please enter and exit your driveway on an angle so your car will not receive any underbody damage.

If you have an existing concrete driveway and the existing roadway does not have a concrete or asphalt curb and gutter, then per the policy of the Ottawa County Road Commission, your driveway approach will be replaced with asphalt. If the existing roadway has a concrete or bituminous curb and gutter then your driveway will be replaced in kind.

Once the new asphalt surface has been placed, please avoid parking on the roadway and shoulder for at least a week. This will help minimize any possible damage to the new pavement.

If you should have any further questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 616-842-5400 and ask for the Project Engineer for your specific project area.

We hope this information is helpful to you. Please feel free to share this with your neighbors.
