North Leroy Street Resurfacing Project Begins

Access to all businesses will remain open during construction.

The has begun.

Limited lane closures are in effect from North Road to the city limits. The street has been reduced to one lane in each direction during the work. Traffic signals have been adjusted to help traffic flow through the project. City officials are urging residents to be patient as they travel through the construction area.

Access to all businesses will remain open during construction. 

"Please continue to visit the businesses in the North Leroy Steet corridor," Fenton Public Works Director Dan Czarnecki said.

Currently the northbound lanes and center turn lane have been closed for construction as the contractor makes drainage improvements, performs pavement and curb repairs, addresses the area of settled pavement near , upgrades sidewalk ramps for better handicapped accessibility at intersections, and performs a milling of the street surface and resurfacing of the roadway, Czarnecki said.

The contractor’s schedule is to have the east half of the project completed by mid-July, at which time traffic will be shifted and work will begin on the west side of the street. The project is projected to be completed and open to traffic by August 31st, weather permitting.

Questions about the project can be directed to Public Works Director Dan Czarnecki at 810-629-2261 or at dczarnecki@cityoffenton.org.

I know that you have to break a few eggs to make a cake and road work is a necessary evil. Some of the self absorbed people who are driving through this area are making this a total nightmare for others. You need to leave a space for a car to make a left turn into the businesses that will be suffering financially because of the problems accessing their parking areas. Please show some respect for the road crew, the businesses and the other drivers !!

I agree, keep it slow. Expect cars to be making right and left turns.
