Drivers beware: Water main project means detours

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.—Drivers beware:  construction is underway to replace an aging water main in downtown Coopersville.

The project began Monday, October 7.  The south lane of West Randall Street will be closed until work is finished, likely on November 17.  At some point during the project, the intersection of 64th Avenue and W. Randall will be temporarily closed as well.

Around July 1, City Manager Steven Patrick said crews were upgrading a booster station to increase water pressure when the pipeline at 64th and West Randall Street burst. Patrick says the city planned to replace the entire water main while reconstructing West Randall Street next year. However, the planning commission agreed to move up the water main project to this year, in light of the recent problems.

City officials say access to local businesses will not be affected during the project.
