Construction is continuing on two street projects in the City of Howell.

Work involves upgrades to water and sewer on various parts of Crane and Gregory Streets, as well as repaving. Construction on Crane is being done from Jewett to Center Street and on Gregory from Washington to Brooks. Howell City Manager Shea Charles provided an update on the project at the most recent City Council meeting. He told WHMI construction is well underway and crews earlier started the process of installing sanitary sewer along the roads. He says so far, so good and the project is moving along.

The ongoing work is part of the city’s 2017 Street Improvement Project. Due to budget constraints, the two streets were selected for improvements this construction season based on having the greatest need and providing the biggest benefit for the community. Both Crane and Gregory Streets were determined to have very poor surface conditions and significant utility and drainage needs.

City officials anticipate having the project complete by the end of the fall. (JM)
