McMenemy Street Improvements

About the Project:

The McMenemy Street Improvement project is a full reconstruction project slated to be constructed in 2022. The project includes many improvements to McMememy Street including a full removal of the existing street and underlying base. The new roadway will consist of two new pavement layers, an aggregate base layer, and a free-draining sub-base layer, along with the installation of concrete curb and gutter. Utility improvements include the removal and replacement of the cast iron water main system, the expansion of the storm sewer system, and repairs to the existing sanitary sewer system. An 8-foot wide multi-use porous asphalt trail is proposed along the east-side of McMenemy street to connect the area to the larger trail systems along County Road B to the north and Wheelock Parkway to the south. 

Project Status:

A combination of watermain material shortage delays, concrete shortages, and the cold snowy weather has unfortunately pushed the remaining project items into the spring of 2023. Construction on the project has been completed for the 2022 season.

In the spring of 2023, the final layer of pavement will be installed on the project streets, the asphalt trail will be installed along the east side of McMenemy Street, the remaining concrete walkways and bus pads will be installed, the retaining walls will be completed, remaining driveway ends will be installed, and the boulevard areas will be restored. 

If you have any questions or comments in regards to the project, please reach out to the project team at your earliest convenience. We sincerely thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout the challenging construction process. We look forward to wrapping things up as quickly as possible next spring.
