The Ottawa County Road Commission has scheduled pedestrian/bike path construction along 10th Avenue from Golfside Drive to Taylor Street, Taylor Street from 10th Avenue to 12th Avenue, and 12th Avenue from Taylor Street North 900 feet. It is anticipated that the work will begin on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
The pedestrian/bike path will be asphalt 10’ wide and located 2’ from right-of-way. This is a continuation of the shared use path that is currently ended on the south side of Golfside Drive.
The road will remain open to traffic during construction but may require lane closures and traffic control. The path construction will take place in several stages and may take some time to complete. Inclement weather may also be a factor in the timely completion of the project. Please be cautious and wary as to the direction of traffic during work hours when lane closures are in place as you are entering or leaving your driveway as a flagger may not be visible to you from the location of your driveway.
- If you have items within the road right-of-way such as irrigation or landscaping, please make arrangements to remove or relocate these items. Neither the contractor nor the Ottawa County Road Commission will be held responsible should any damage occur to these items within the road right-of-way.
- If you have an existing concrete driveway and the existing roadway does not have a concrete or asphalt curb and gutter, then per the policy of the Board of Commissioners for the Ottawa County Road Commission, your driveway approach will be replaced with asphalt. If the existing roadway has a concrete or bituminous curb and gutter, then your driveway will be replaced in kind. If you have an existing asphalt driveway, then your driveway approach will be replaced with asphalt. If you have an existing gravel driveway, then your driveway approach will be replaced with gravel.
If you should have any further questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 616-842-5400 and ask for the Project Engineer for the specified project.
