The road construction project from Michigan Avenue to Quay Street in downtown Port Huron is nearing completion. Michigan Avenue from Quay heading north to McMorran has been replaced with new underground service including a new sanitary sewer, new sidewalks, and a new roadway. During the project, access to businesses along Michigan had only been available from the Quay street lot using the Fort Street entrance. The work has been ongoing for nearly 2 months.
Port Huron City Manager James Freed told WGRT in July that construction was expected to be completed in mid to late September. According to a city official overseeing the project, work should be completed by this coming weekend. Crews are in the process of finishing sidewalks and raising manholes to street level. Three inches of base and three inches of a leveling course are now in place. City officials want to watch for settling and other unforeseen issues that may occur over the winter. The final course of one-and-a-half inches of asphalt will be added in the spring.
