Grand Blanc City ramps up for $1.1 million local street projects

GRAND BLANC — Now that spring is here, the City of Grand Blanc has begun the process of planning for its $1.1 million project for local streets reconstruction and repaving.

Projects were set to begin June 1 and continue through September.

The last local street project in the city was in the summer of 2017. Six streets were identified in that project and totaled more than $706,000 in investment in local streets.

The 2020 project will have 10 streets:

•Stonybrook Drive – all

• Greenwich Lane between Woodbridge and Stonybrook drives

• Layman Creek Circle – all

• Boutell Drive

• Moceri Drive between the two junctions with Boutell Drive

• Birchwood Lane – all

• Townline Road around Old Town and to Townline Court

• Townline Court – all

• Morningside Circle – all, and

• West Street between Union Street and half of Hattie Street.

“We are excited to begin these projects, but know residents on these streets will be experiencing momentary difficulties and issues while work is being done,” said City Manager Wendy Jean-Buhrer.

The 2020 projects were made possible through the 0.9 mill collected from residents, as well as the state Gas and Weight Tax. Funds received from these revenues are restricted to provide services and street construction, reconstruction and re-pavement.
