OCRC Summer Hours: M-Th 7 AM-4:30 PM, Friday 7-11 AM

WHEN: Beginning June 3, 2019

WHERE: Johnson Street, from 120th Avenue east one mile, Robinson Township.

WHY: Road Reconstruction

BACKGROUND: The Ottawa County Road Commission and Robinson Township have scheduled road construction on Johnson Street from 120th Avenue east one mile.

Work on this project will consist of clearing and grubbing of trees, culvert placement, placing of aggregate and HMA courses, and aggregate shoulders.

The road will be closed to through traffic until the road re-opens at the completion of the project. Access will be maintained on the road for local traffic and emergency vehicles only.

Work is anticipated to begin the week of June 3, 2019, and completion is scheduled for Aug. 2, 2019.

As with all construction projects, these dates are dependent on weather and other factors. Please check our website, for the most up-to-date information.

IF YOU LIVE ALONG JOHNSON STREET: The road will be closed to thru traffic; however, access will be maintained to your driveway.  The construction 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.

Your mail box will be temporarily moved to a new location for the construction operations and then replaced after construction.  Both the temporary location and the replaced height of mailbox will be specified by the mail carrier.

If you have items within the road right-of-way that are near the existing roadway such as irrigation or landscaping, please make arrangements to remove these items.  You may flag the irrigation lines, sprinkler heads, or other items that are near the right-of-way line and contractor will make every 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.

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