Arcadian Avenue Reconstruction Project - 2017

Project Update: May 25, 2017



WE Energies started their large gas main work on the Eastern limit of the project and are working back towards the Western limit of the project. The City’s contractor will be starting their underground sanitary work on the Eastern end early next week (weather dependent). During this time Arcadian Avenue will still remain closed to through traffic (local traffic only), access will be maintained to all local businesses.

Below is some information regarding switching the road reconstruction from Prairie Ave to Arcadian Ave.

Due to potentially re-aligning N. Prairie Avenue between the railroad tracks and St. Paul Ave, the planned 2017 reconstruction project is being delayed. It is planned to substitute the reconstruction with Arcadian Avenue.

The Arcadian Avenue project limits are from 250’ west of Eugene Ct. to east of N. Greenfield Ave.

The Arcadian Avenue project will involve a complete road reconstruction including replacement of pavement, curbs, approaches and handicap ramps. The utility upgrades include relaying portions of the water main and sanitary sewer and rehabilitating the storm sewer.   

The project is anticipated to start in early May and be complete by the end of October.  During construction, the road will be closed to through traffic. Access will be maintained to driveways for residents & businesses within the construction limits until the concrete pavement is placed. When the concrete pavement is placed, residents will lose access to driveways until the curb and approaches have been placed and cured.       

A letter to the residents along Arcadian has been sent out to let them know the project is occurring. The DPW’s construction map will also be updated on the website with this change.
