North Michigan Street at its intersection with Hoham Drive will be closed next week, Tuesday, October 10th through Thursday, October 12th. The purpose of the closure is for the installation of a new storm sewer culvert.
The project is part of the ongoing widening of Hoham Drive between Michigan Street and Western Avenue. The widening project, originally planned to be completed this fall, has experienced significant delays attributed to NIPSCO and its subcontractors’ work to relocate underground gas lines in the area. The gas line relocation work has finally been completed and the job site has been turned over to the city’s selected street contractor, Milestone Contractors. Due to the delays, Milestone has determined that it is no longer practical to complete the project before winter weather sets in. Milestone’s revised plan for the project includes the installation of the new storm sewer culvert next week. There will be no work on-site in Plymouth during the weeks of October 16th and 23rd as Milestone crews work at other job sites. The Milestone crew returns the week of October 30th to install a new water main through late November at which time Hoham Drive will be reopened for the winter season. Milestone will return to Plymouth in early spring to complete paving work on the Hoham widening project.
The City of Plymouth’s leadership thanks the public for their patience as we work to complete this important street improvement project.
