Microsurface Project to Begin This Week

The microsurface project in Plymouth will begin a few days early.

Chris Oakes, owner of Pavement Solutions, Inc., said work will begin mid-week to level and surface course Oakhill Avenue from S. Michigan Street to the city limits near the waste water and public works offices. Flaggers will be directing traffic and one lane of traffic will remain open at all times. This process should take three days, weather permitting.

Oak Drive will be next on the list from the south end of Jefferson to State Road 17. Traffic will be detoured as crews work in this area.

Five days have been set aside to microsurface Oak Drive from U.S. 30 to Jefferson Street. Oakes said traffic will be controlled by an arrow board, traffic control cones and flaggers as work commences. He added that there will be times when turns will be restricted across lanes.

Jefferson Street from west of Oak Drive to 5th Street will be the last part of the project. Traffic delays will occur during the installation of material in the intersection. Flaggers will direct traffic, but one lane will be open at all times.

The project will cease from June 30 to July 4 for the Independence Day holiday. Work will resume at 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 5.
