M-60 through Menden
C2AE was hired to complete 1.1 miles of total reconstruction and rehabilitation on M-60 in Mendon, Michigan. This project included the water main replacement and upsizing; design, sizing, and layout of storm sewer reconstruction; and the coordination of an MDEQ permit for storm sewer drainage to Little Portage Creek, which flows into the Kalamazoo River. We also designed detention and settling basins to enhance the water quality of the storm sewer outlets.
This reconstruction required total coordination with MDOT Environment Specialist and the State Historic Preservation Office as this is a high impact historical area. MDOT also required that we prepare and collect permits for the right of way plans to highlight temporary and permanent right of way designs.
Our team met with the community to create maintenance, traffic, and pavement marking plans. We also coordinated with the city to create a new water main design and downtown enhancements.
