Electric work begins next week on Johnson/Water Street Project

May 9, 2015

HART — City staff, engineers, Michigan Department of Transportation officials, utility companies and Hallack Contracting representatives met Thursday, May 7, for a pre-construction conference to discuss city water, sewer and electric installation; and to coordinate the work with gas, telephone and cable utilities for the $798,000 Johnson/Water Street Project, according to a press release issued by the City of Hart. Electric conduit installation will begin the next week using a directional boring technique that should minimize traffic disruption.

The water and sewer installation phase is scheduled for June 8 through July 28, a seven-week effort. Work will begin at Johnson and Water streets and proceed westerly to Peach Street; and easterly to State Street. Service interruptions should be minimal, and residents will be notified if water supply is turned off for connection to the new water main. Underground improvements will be disruptive to traffic patterns, so plan now for alternate routes and overnight parking.

The city hall and library parking lots will be available for overnight parking, and other nearby parking lots may be available. Mason-Oceana 911 and Oceana County Emergency Management Services (EMS) are aware of this project.

Muskegon engineers Prein & Newhof will soon assign a construction engineer to the project who will work on behalf of the city. “Thank you in advance for your patience,” the press release states.
