Zimmer Road – Grand River Avenue to Haslett Road - Williamstown Township. Federal Urban STP & STP Safety, STP Small Urban, Federal and State Local Bridge Program, and ICDTR funding. Estimated cost: $3.9 million. The project will involve the reconstruction of 4 miles of Zimmer Road from ¼ mi. south of Grand River Avenue (M-43) to Haslett Road this summer. The project will generally consist of grinding up, re-grading, and widening the road for paved shoulders and left turn lanes at M-43, then resurfacing with new asphalt pavement. The project includes the complete removal and reconstruction of a new wider bridge over the Red Cedar River, installation of a new traffic signal at M-43, as well as routine repairs/replacement of culverts and storm sewer within the project. It is anticipated that the reconstruction will begin in early June, and its completion is anticipated to happen in late November.

The Department of Public Works is experiencing a higher rate of clogged pumps at the Zimmer Road lift station. We believe that the improper disposal of items such as adult undergarments, baby diapers and mop heads may be the cause. Please properly dispose of these items in the trash.
