Description: This project will resurface approximately 2.5 miles of Old Lansing Road between Lansing Rd and Waverly Rd in Delta Township. Work will include widening the existing pavement to provide 5' wide bicycle lanes on each side of the road and new asphalt surfacing. Construction is scheduled to begin on April 15, 2019 barring delays due to weather and spring weight restrictions.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) awarded the project to the low bid of $711,664 from Rieth-Riley Construction Co., Inc.
Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds and Federal Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funds will pay a combined $520,000 of the contracted construction costs on the project. The local matching costs not covered by grant funds plus design and construction engineering will be shared by the Road Commission and Delta Charter Township.
The project will be constructed in two phases:
Phase One between Waverly Road and Mt. Hope Highway is scheduled to be complete on May 15, 2019 barring delays due to weather. During this phase, traffic will be maintained southbound only between Waverly Road and Mt. Hope Highway. Old Lansing Road will be closed to northbound thru traffic.
Phase Two between Lansing Road and Mt. Hope Highway is scheduled to begin immediately following Phase One. Old Lansing Road will be closed to thru traffic during this phase. Local traffic will be maintained for residents and businesses.
During the project, the contractor intends to maintain mailboxes in their current locations, providing access to the mail carrier.
