Hickory St./Palm Dr. project to begin Sept. 30 in Spring Lake Twp.

WHAT: Road Resurfacing/Crush & Shape

WHERE: Hickory St./Palm Dr.

TOWNSHIP: Spring Lake

START DATE: Sept. 30, 2022


PROJECT DETAILS: The Ottawa County Road Commission will be conducting a street resurfacing/crush and shape project on Hickory St./Palm Dr. in Spring Lake Township, with work beginning on Sept. 30, 2022.

Mill and resurfacing work will take place on Hickory St.

Crush & shape will take place on Palm Dr. Crush & shape is a structural pavement treatment that grinds, or crushes, the existing asphalt and several inches of the underlying gravel. The material is then regraded, compacted and covered with multiple layers of paver-placed hot asphalt.

To accommodate the crush & shape portion of the project, Palm Dr. will be closed to thru traffic between Hickory St. and the county line (where Palm Dr. turns to Black Lake Rd).


Palm Dr. will be closed to thru traffic, however local traffic will be able to access residences within the closure limits. All other traffic will be detoured using Pontaluna Rd./174th Ave./Hickory St.

Traffic on Hickory St. for the resurfacing portion of the project will be maintained using temporary lane closures under flag control.
