Orange barrels on the way: Paving projects set for village streets

August 25, 2010 - The mean streets of Ortonville will receive some kindness soon.

Weather cooperating, South Street will be repaved on Thursday from M-15 to the bridge just north of the library, said Village Manager Larry Brown. On Friday, Narrin Street between Mill and Myron streets and Ball Street between Cedar Street and the bridge will also be repaved.

All work will be done by Cadillac Asphalt, LLC, a Clarkston company that was the low bidder for the projects, at a cost of $53,920. The village received six bids for the work and Cadillac has also been approved to add a leveling course prior to paving Narrin, at a cost of $63.94 per ton applied.

"The edges of Narrin have fallen away and it needs to be built up before the top layer (of asphalt) is done," said Brown, who estimated between 60-100 tons would be needed.

All roads will be open to one lane of traffic while work is done. The projects are expected to be completed in a day.

The repaved streets are part of a roughly $80,000 spending plan the village council approved in July. Other approved purchases include a new DPW truck and replacement of a 100-foot section of sidewalk on Varsity Drive.
