2018 Project Map

CAP2007 Gardenia Avenue Improvements

East of Main Street to Campbell Road

Contractor: AJAX Paving Industries, Inc.


The city will be resurfacing Gardenia Avenue from just east of Main Street (east of Frentz & Sons Hardware) to Campbell Road. Construction is scheduled to be completed by mid-October 2018. The city has closed Gardenia Avenue to thru-traffic and is prohibiting side street traffic from entering Gardenia between Main Street and Campbell Road as shown on the map below.

This project has been affected by the union lockout dispute between the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) and the Operating Engineers Local 324.

The concrete subcontractor is non-union and has finished the concrete work for the project. The remainder of the project (asphalt milling and resurfacing) is currently shut-down until the dispute is resolved.  In the new few weeks, the contractor plans to have the restoration crews begin restoration on private property where handicap ramps altered the grade significantly.
