Sherman Blvd Road Project
Open House: McGraft Park Community Building, 2204 Wickham St, Muskegon, Thursday, June 8th from 4-6 PM
Road Construction Project Summary
Rebuilding Sherman from Barclay to Seaway. At the end of this project you will have a new concrete road. Some sidewalks will be replaced in areas that are affected, and new trees will be planted after the project is done. The project may begin in July; more information on the schedule will be given to you as the project gets closer. It is expected to take about three months which means it may be done around October 1. These times could change as the project goes on.
Important Project Facts
Changes to expect: When the project is complete the lanes will stay the same, no changes to traffic flow, just repaving with concrete and updating some driveways and sidewalks where necessary.
Timeline/timeframe: The project is estimated to take twelve weeks. An updated schedule will be determined later this summer.
Lane, road or intersections shutdown: One lane of Sherman will be open in each direction throughout the project. Henry Street at Sherman will be closed for about 3 weeks near the end of the project.
- Sherman will be down to one lane in each direction for the whole project.
- For about the last 3 weeks of the project the Henry Street intersection will be closed. Henry will be closed at Sherman with north-bound traffic detoured to Summit, Seaway and Hackley. The same for south bound with traffic detoured to Hackley, Seaway and Summit. Sherman traffic will still operate though the intersection with no turns onto Henry.
Scrap Tire Trial
As a part of the project, parts of the concrete road will use ground-up scrap tires instead of certain types of rock. This is being done as a trial to find ways to use scrap tires rather than put them in landfills. The City is partnering with the State Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) and with Michigan Technological University in Houghton, MI (MTU) for this trial. A grant from EGLE of $375,000 is being used to help pay for the tires that will be used.
Glenside Blvd Road Project
This is a Roosevelt Park road project, but we are providing information for residents as the municipalities plan together.
Rebuilding Glenside from Hackley to Sherman. At the end of this project you will have a new blacktop road. Sidewalk will be added near Sherman, and a new non-motorized path will be added to the east side of the road. More information on the schedule will be given to you as the project gets closer. It is expected to take about two months once it starts. This could change as the project goes on.
Changes to expect: Lanes staying the same with no changes to traffic flow, just repaving with new curbs and new blacktop. New sidewalk will be added on the west side of Glenside near Sherman, and a new blacktop non-motorized path will be added to the east side of the road.
Timeline/timeframe: Summer 2024 for about 8-10 weeks.
Lane, road or intersections shutdown: Glenside will be closed between Hackley and Sherman, but you’ll still be able to get to all of the businesses and homes.
