This summer marks the start of the M-100 reconstruction project that will repair roads, sewers, curbs and gutters and will provide many other upgrades.
Starting during the springtime, the construction will last the entire summer and is sure to provide fits for many of citizens in the Grand Ledge Community.
The first section of road that will be repaired is between Franklin and Taylor Streets. Currently, this is a four way street, but after the construction it will be re-striped and cut down the three lanes.
During this time citizens are advised to use the detour, which will use M-43 and Jenne St.
The second section on M-100 will be between Taylor and South Bridge St. and along South Bridge St. between E. Jefferson and the Grand River Bridge. Construction in this section will consist of road resurfacing and sidewalk ramp upgrades.
Traffic will continue to run on E. Jefferson and South Bridge St. during the construction, but is sure to be backed up do to the amount of cars on the street.
There is going to be a stressful time for both the city and the construction company, but in the city will have beautiful new roads.
The construction will cause people that live in the area with constant headaches because the construction will take most of the summer.
