Mendon infrastructure project nearing completion

Mendon residents are in store for relief from the summer-long, downtown infrastructure-improvement project.
Village manager John Hyden said there’s a chance street paving will begin Friday, so long as the weather between now and Friday allows.
Street paving will mark a significant step toward completion of the $4.1 million project, which started March 30. Hyden said in addition to the new water infrastructure and 1.1 miles of new roadway, the village will see new sidewalks, curbs and gutters. The trees along Main Street through the downtown district had to be removed, but will be replaced at the end of the project, he added.
He said the new water pipes were increased in circumference size from eight inches to 12 inches. Though the larger pipes won’t increase pressure, Hyden said the new material has resulted in higher-quality water that residents may have noticed when service through the new infrastructure was activated in late August.
Michigan Department of Transportation has had to secure two extensions on the project, which was supposed to be finished almost a month ago.
