As part of the ongoing dedication to providing top quality, cost-effective, and environmentally safe water and wastewater services to our customers, YCUA will be making improvements to both existing water and wastewater utilities within the M-17 and US-12 corridors in the City of Ypsilanti. The improvements will be constructed for YCUA by DiPonio Contracting, Inc., of Shelby Township, Michigan. The project will be completed over the course of the next 2 years with work starting in the vicinity of South Hamilton Street, South Huron Street, and Interstate 94 and proceeding northerly from there. The attached map shows the phasing of the work and the anticipated time frame for each phase. Following the completion of YCUA’s utility improvements, the roads will be resurfaced/repaired by the Michigan Department of Transportation under a separate construction contract.
The project was designed for YCUA by OHM Advisors, Inc. (OHM), of Livonia, Michigan. On behalf of YCUA, OHM will also be administering the construction contract and providing full-time, on-site observation of the work by DiPonio Contracting, Inc.
Access to homes and businesses within the project limits will be maintained at all times during the project. Although every effort will be made to minimize disruptions caused by the water and wastewater system improvements, the construction work will invariably result in some inconveniences.
An informational video will be issued within the next week. The video will also be provided to both the City of Ypsilanti Department of Public Services and the Downtown Development Authority. A public meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on February 23, 2022, at the Freighthouse in Depot Town (100 Market Place, Ypsilanti, Michigan, 48198). Staff from YCUA, OHM, and DiPonio Contracting, Inc., will be present to discuss the project and answer questions. If you have any questions regarding this project please call YCUA at (734) 484-4600 and ask for Scott Westover, Engineering Manager, at extension 220 or via electronic mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
