This project involved survey, design, and construction administration for roadway improvements to 1,200 feet of Orchard and Park, and 1,100 feet of Bancroft Road in Ottawa Hills. The survey for this project involved establishing horizontal and vertical control points using State Plane Coordinates, conducting a complete topographical survey, and performing pipe survey of the existing storm sewers. Survey also included picking up monument boxes in the area to reestablish the existing right-of-way.

On Orchard/Park, the existing asphalt and curb & gutter were removed and a new aggregate base was placed with new asphalt & type 6 curb during the reconstruction of this road. Subgrade improvements were also done as needed utilizing undercut. Due to several asphalt overlays over the years, to maintain the existing curb height, the vertical profile had to be lowered throughout the majority of the project. Portions of the existing storm sewer were also removed and replaced as needed to accommodate the roadway reconstruction. Sidewalk panels were also replaced as needed and all signs were replaced and upgraded to current standards.

On Bancroft, 3” of asphalt was milled off and replaced with new asphalt as part of the resurfacing component of the plans.
