Chum's Corners Reconstruction

The truth about concrete and asphalt – they usually don’t work well together. Enter the US-31 Highway reconstruction at Chum’s Corners, which decided to use both methods to solve the increasing amount of traffic funneled through that intersection.


Crossing the River: Reynolds Road

Team Elmer's has put the finishing touches on the Honor-based Reynolds Road Bridge, which spans 72 feet across the Platte River. The project, which was made possible through generous grants from the Grand Traverse Band of Chippewa and Ottawa Indians, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Conservation Resource Alliance, will help to eliminate washouts into the Platte River.


East Bay Park: E-Coli Removal

Elmer’s got to work in late April, implementing a trio of three-step filtration systems that will greatly cut back on bacterial contamination and keep problems like “Raccoon-gate” from recurring in the future.


Grand Marais Water Repairs

Team Elmer’s dug up the old system and installed the new—a network of heavy six and eight-inch pipes and water valves supplied by Etna Supply that, by the end of the project, spanned roughly 30,000 feet (six miles!) in length. We also connected 285 water meters to ensure fair and consistent billing for residents and businesses.


Holiday Road Resurrection

For years, Holiday Road, the busy gateway to the suburban areas of Traverse City’s Holiday Hills, has been plagued by massive potholes and disintegrating shoulders. Thanks to the devoted and tireless actions of some of Holiday Road’s more vocal residents, as well as a generous grant from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, in coordination with the Grand Traverse County Road Commission,Team Elmer’s went to work to fix the problem once and for all.

 


M-37 Phase I: Sherman Hill

Take a drive down M-37, past Buckley and North of Mesick, and you’ll see some of the latest Team Elmer’s handiwork. The Michigan Department of Transportation wanted to a reconstruct a section of the two-lane highway, in order to reduce overall pavement grade and boost traffic safety, and Team Elmer’s got the job.


M-37 Phase II:Roundabout

In years past, drivers heading south from Traverse City on M-37 had to be especially cautious when they reached the intersection at M-115. The junction between these two Michigan highways never seemed like it should have been a big problem, but dozens of accidents over the years and plenty of complaints from drivers calling the spot the most dangerous intersection in the state forced the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to pay attention.


M-88: Antrim County

Team Elmer’s realized early on two key aspects to the project that would require special focus: maintaining traffic and a significant elevation change. The 5.33-mile stretch of road was located in a part of the county where no other real detour options existed. In other words, Team Elmer’s had to implement a range of improvements on a road that needed to remain open to traffic at all times.
