Mendon begins major reconstruction project

Motorists passing through downtown Mendon have discovered work on a major infrastructure-improvement project has already started.
The five-month, $4.1 million task began Monday last week. The Michigan Department of Transportation has routed traffic one-way through the village, resulting in a detour for westbound traffic on M-60.
The 1.1-mile reconstruction, which runs the length of the village limits, has been on the Michigan Department of Transportation’s drawing board since 2001 and includes an overhaul of Mendon’s water infrastructure.
Village manager John Hyden said the base on the roadway is completely gone and the village’s water infrastructure is more than 100 years old.
Though all other local roads are open, MDOT is recommending a detour that takes westbound traffic south on M-66 to westbound M-86 and into Three Rivers.
