Notification of Detour
Beginning the week of February 5, 2018, Milbocker will start work on Dunkley Avenue adjacent to the Main Lift Station. Unfortunately, this work will require the roadway to be closed and a detour to be set up. The detour will be set up similarly to the detour that was in place last spring. A map of the detour can be found here. The sewer work is expected to last approximately 3 weeks. Once sewer work is completed, the detour will be removed and a gravel surface will be maintained until the final surface of asphalt can be repaired.
The Department of Public Works apologizes for the inconvenience to our customers. If you have questions regarding this matter, you may contact the Public Works Director at 269-637-0737.read more >
