Calhoun Street work in Lapeer to start second week of August

LAPEER — The reconstruction of Calhoun Street in Lapeer, between Genesee and Nepessing streets, is expected to get underway the first or second week of August — a few weeks later than originally planned.

The project will include new storm and sanitary mains, sub-surface improvements, new curb and gutters, sidewalks and new pavement. Contractor for the project is Rohde Bros. Excavating of Saginaw, the same company currently doing the Court Street work in the city between Genesee Street and just south of the bridge over Farmers Creek. Completion is set for Aug. 12.

“They wanted to really have the majority of the Court Street work done before they move over to Calhoun and close another street to construction,” said Pam Reid, director of the Lapeer Dept. of Public Works. “I can appreciate that. Right now they’re right on track on Court Street, even with all the rain we’ve had lately.”

The Calhoun Street project is the equivalent of two small city blocks, and shouldn’t take as long as the Court Street work. Calhoun is expected to be complete by mid- to late September.
