The City of Taylor recently received Federal Funding through the Michigan Department of Transportation to repair and resurface Beech Daly Road from Eureka Road to Brest Road. However, due to delays in other MDOT-related activities, Florence Cement Company will not be able to begin surface milling until Monday, August 29. The work was originally scheduled to begin on August 15.
Spalding DeDecker Engineering and Surveying is acting as the City’s engineering and inspection consultant for this project. Through a competitive bidding process administered by MDOT, Florence Cement Company of Shelby Township was awarded the contract for this work.
The asphalt surface will be milled off, areas of concrete base will be repaired, utility structures adjusted and repaired, and the final road surface constructed. This work will be done in two stages. The first is the section of Beech Daly from Eureka to Northline, and the second, Beech Daly from Northline to Brest. During the work, a portion of Beech Daly will be closed to traffic and detoured around the construction work.
Spalding DeDecker employees have distributed “door hangers” with this same information to all properties on Beech Daly affected by the work earlier this month. The project is tentatively planned to be completed in October.
During this time residents may lose access to driveways and the front or side of their house or building for short periods of time. For your own convenience, and so that the work can be performed in a safe and timely manner, kindly park vehicles in other locations when the contractors are working on the street.
Trash pick-up will continue on the regularly scheduled day and trash containers should be placed at the edge of the street. On side streets, locate the containers such that they will be away from parked vehicles and be able to be picked up by the waste hauler.
We apologize for the delays and the inconvenience this work may cause you. The City, Spalding DeDecker and Florence Cement will try to limit the inconvenience as best as possible. Your cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
Should you have any questions, kindly contact Greg Mayhew, City Engineer, at 734-374-1473, or by email at email@example.com.
