GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- If you travel down Lake Michigan Drive, be prepared: more construction is on the way.
The city of Grand Rapids says a private contractor will resurface Lake Michigan Drive between Garfield and Seward avenues in August. Wheelchair ramps will also be added to sidewalks as necessary. The work will also include replacing a water main from National Avenue to Seward Avenue, and concrete repairs from Seward Avenue to U.S. 131.
Work on Lake Michigan drive from Garfield Avenue to U.S. 131 will be paid for by a federal grant.
While road closures are likely, all roads will remain open strictly to local and emergency traffic.
If all goes well, the project should be finished by mid-October.
