The City of Pontiac has contracted with Opperman Construction Co. to remove storm water from the sanitary sewer system. This work will include the installation of storm sewers on Henry Street from Court to Main Streets, South Street from Court to Mill Streets, and Moulton Street from Court to Mill Streets. Due to the nature of the work, the width of the streets, and the location of the work in the street, the streets will be closed while the work progresses. They will be opened once the storm sewers are installed and closed again for patching.
Opperman Construction has scheduled work to begin on Thursday, September 7, 2023, with the pavement cutting operations. They have scheduled storm sewer installation to begin on Monday September 11, 2023, at Henry and Division Street. Opperman has scheduled the work to proceed on Henry Street west to Court Street before moving on to Henry Street headed West to Main Street.
Once completed this work will remove the storm sewer from the sanitary sewer and reduce sewer overflows and backups.
