Work began this morning on this summer's Depot Drive repaving project, as K&H Concrete Cutting from Byron Center began making curb cuts.
Jim Bradford, director of the City's Department of Public Services, said the project is expected to wrap up in mid-August. At festival time, during Summer in the City, the Open Header Cruise and the Rod & Roll Classic Auto Show, work will be temporarily shut down to ease traffic flow. Bradford said throughout the entire project, parking along Depot Drive will remain available with parking entrances open to city parking on both sides of the street.
The Depot Drive project qualified for paving grant funds from the Michigan Department of Transportation's Small Urban Area Task Force program.
