Mendon traffic back to normal

Traffic flow is back to normal after the final stage of a major road project in a St. Joseph County community began last week.
Main Street in Mendon opened to two-way traffic last Thursday after the westbound lane was closed when the $4.1 million infrastructure project started in late March. Village manager John Hyden said the balance of the project is completed and the only outstanding work includes restoration, signage and cleanup.
The project ran about a month over schedule, due in part to weather, but more so because contractors and subcontractors were obligated to the Sprinkle Road bridge project at I-94 in Kalamazoo County, which took precedence.
The Mendon job included reconstruction of the village’s water infrastructure through the 1.1-mile stretch of Main Street within the village limits. Hyden said the original water pipes were more than 100 years old and in desperate need of replacement.
