Township Council is pleased to provide an update and some photos of the Pine Street Culvert Project. The contractor has now removed the old culverts and the new culverts have been installed successfully.
Water is now flowing through the culverts as the temporary diversion channel and coffer dams have all been removed. The road subgrade has been brought up to paving elevations.
Guide rail installation will take place early next week. The contractors are replacing a section of the water main that had to be removed during the construction phase and before the roadway could be reopened to vehicular traffic.
There will be directional drilling equipment on site in the next week or two to complete this scope of work. After the watermain has been installed, the roadway will be open for vehicular traffic to travel across the river.
The contractor will confirm drilling dates with JML Engineering, however a conservative estimate for the end of this year’s work would be the week of November 27, 2023.
Paving and concrete work is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2024.
We want to thank all of our residents in the Township of Ignace for their patience and ongoing support of our community projects.
