Lamoreaux Drive

Schedule Date: April 1 - August 30, 2019 (Originally projected through October 26, 2019)

Location Detail: Alpine Ave. to West River Dr.

Improvement work on Lamoreaux Drive between Alpine Avenue and West River Drive has been completed two months ahead of schedule. An additional closure is needed to allow Marquette Rail to replace the railroad crossing located on Lamoreaux Drive south of Clark Street. (Because the road and utility improvements were completed well ahead of schedule, an additional closure for the railroad work will be used.) Message boards will be installed ahead of the closure and a detour will be posted.


The Kent County Road Commission and Plainfield Township contracted Kamminga and Roodvoets Construction (K&R) to remove and replace the asphalt pavement on Lamoreaux Drive and replace the water main. K&R was also contracted by Alpine Township to replace sanitary sewer and by Comstock Park DDA to install a sidewalk between Bud Street and West River Drive. In addition, Miller Pipeline, under contract with DTE Energy, replaced the natural gas line.

Road and utility improvements were completed under a “through traffic” road closure which provided a safer work zone and more flexibility in daily scheduling of work. In addition, K&R utilized two crews for the first month of water main replacement, which also served to expedite completion.

 Work includes

  • Water main replacement between Bekinshire Drive and the railroad crossing on the north side of Lamoreaux Drive and between the railroad crossing and West River Drive on the south side of Lamoreaux Drive.
  • Replacement of natural gas line on south and north sides of Lamoreaux Drive.
  • Road Reconstruction (Full Depth Mill & Fill) 
  • Sanitary Sewer (Alpine Township)
  • Sidewalk installation (Comstock Park DDA) between Bud Street and West River Drive
  • Natural Gas Line (DTE)

Supplemental Work (Schedule TBD)  by Marquette Rail (Crossing Installation on Lamoreaux Drive south of Clark Street)

Traffic Control:

  • Phase 1: Detour (see below) for through traffic/local & bus traffic maintained
  • Phase 2: Lane closures/open to two-way traffic
  • Railroad Crossing Installation: Total closure at crossing located on Lamoreaux Drive south of Clark Street (TBD)

Contractor: Kamminga & Roodvoets
