Rivard Street Repair Project
In 2021, Pro-Line Asphalt Paving of Washington, Michigan was unable to complete the work the City contracted. The remaining work to resurface Rivard Boulevard, from Jefferson Avenue to Maumee Avenue and from Kercheval Avenue to Charlevoix, is in process.  Pro-Line Asphalt Paving anticipates the project to take about 8 to 10 weeks to complete.  This project includes the removal and replacement of concrete curb and gutters, driveway approaches, milling off the existing asphalt surface, joint and base repairs to the existing roadway base, and the placement of a new asphalt wearing surface.

There will be no parking on Rivard between Jefferson and Maumee and Kercheval to Charlevoix during work hours of 7am to 5pm Monday - Friday. Traffic will be restricted to residents only on all three blocks.

Removal of the asphalt layer of pavement has been completed from Jefferson to Maumee and upon review of the underlying concrete base, it has been identified that extensive deterioration exists with the underlying concrete and will require removal and replacement with a new base prior to placing asphalt.  It is anticipated, weather dependent, that the base work will commence the week of July 4.  Pro-Line Asphalt will be cleaning up the site and adjusting barricading for the holiday weekend.  During the holiday weekend and until base work commences, parking can take place on the street where areas are not barricaded off to traffic.

Pro-Line Asphalt is scheduled, weather dependent, to place asphalt on Thursday, July 7 on Rivard from Kercheval to Charlevoix. Therefore, prior to 7:00am on Thursday, July 7, all vehicles must be removed from the street and from your driveways as Rivard will be closed to all traffic starting during the asphalt paving operation. Once paving is complete in the evening, Rivard will be reopened back to traffic.  Please turn off automatic lawn irrigation systems starting the evening of Wednesday, July 6 and can be turned back on once paving operations are complete to prevent water from being on the roadway.

Dan K’s Landscaping has been regularly watering the newly placed sod and will complete their final watering on July 1 as the sod has now rooted.  Property owners are now responsible for watering the new sod that has been placed.  It has been noted there are certain areas of missing or inadequate restoration that will be addressed by the restoration subcontractor once road work is completed.

Garbage pickup, mail delivery, and parcel delivery will not be interrupted. Please continue to place garbage at the curb on your regular day for pickup.

For questions or concerns during the duration of the project, please contact Mr. Ryan Kern, Project Manager with the City’s engineering consultant, Anderson, Eckstein and Westrick, Inc. (AEW) at 586-854-5044, or by e-mail at  AEW will also have a construction observer on site for the entire duration of the project.
