Archives for 2016

Pine Street Pedestrian Bridge

As Traverse City’s downtown area has expanded and segmented into separate “districts,” the area has become more vibrant and bustling than ever before. The increasing use of the area has also left some districts feeling separate from the rest of the downtown area—an issue that low bid Team Elmer’s was contracted to help solve with a recent project.


Clinch Park Marina

In 2016, the City of Traverse City had to find the right company to repair the problems to the splash pad, break wall and kayak launch to maintain public safety. Team Elmer's was the low bid on the City of Traverse City re-engineered work.


Revitalizing Garland Street

With the gap between the Warehouse District and the rest of downtown successfully bridged—both literally and figuratively—Team Elmer's set to work on the next stage of Traverse City's revitalization plans. This time, we set up shop on Garland Street, a road slated for realignment and falling into disrepair; greatly impeding the Warehouse District's chances at growth and redevelopment.


M-115 Highway

Highway M-115 is a key highway in northwest Michigan, stretching nearly 100 miles from Frankfort to Clare. In the summer of 2016, Team Elmer’s oversaw reconstruction on a 6.46-mile stretch of M-115 within Benzie County. The project involved asphalt crushing, shaping, and reconstruction of the road, drainage, and traffic signal work for the entire six-and-a-half-mile span.


Hammond Road Water Main

East Bay Charter Township was adding a new water tower and water main loop. The township had limited water storage capacity, which meant that its existing water towers, storage tanks, and mains were at capacity.


M-113 Reconstruct

As part of Michigan’s trunkline highway system, M-113 is a well-traveled road that runs through Grand Traverse County and connects the residents of Traverse City to the main drag highway of US-131. The road runs through hilly country and features numerous twists and turns that can make it a dangerous drive in the dark or in the wintertime.


Lower Shore Drive

It’s not difficult to see why Lower Shore Drive is one of the most popular rides in Northern Michigan for cyclists and motorcyclists alike. The roadway, located in the beautiful and quaint waterfront community of Harbor Springs, Michigan, puts cyclists and drivers just a stone’s throw from the shores of Lake Michigan. In the summer especially, the road offers unbeatable scenic views and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.


West Central Avenue

Locals have long considered West Central Avenue overdue for repair, but it wasn’t until mid-2016 that the Mackinaw City Village Council approved a proposal to rehabilitate the road.


Cass Road Bridge

For years, residents of Traverse City have awaited the replacement of the Cass Road Bridge. The bridge is one of the only ways to get to the other side of the Boardman River in that part of town, but it is also far from convenient. A one-way road over a dam, the existing bridge can create bottlenecks or queues of cars depending on the time of day. 


Gaylord Streetscape

 Working alongside a team of subcontractors, Team Elmer’s excavation crews took to a pair of Downtown Gaylord streets—Main Street and South Otsego Avenue—to remove deteriorating curb and gutter and begin work on the revitalization. The job involved everything from full reconstruction and restoration of the outdated storm sewer and gutter systems to placement of new sidewalks. Paving and concrete work—including decorative concrete—was necessary to construct new sidewalks in accordance with the Gaylord Streetscape plan, as were new ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
