Glen's Market Manistee

When Rohde Construction of Kentwood, Mich. was contracted to build the new Glen’s Market in Manistee, Mich., it discovered an expensive problem: how to move 65,000 yards of fill across a major state highway to raise the foundation of the construction site – without stopping traffic and breaking the bank.

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.

Grand Traverse Resort Parking Lot

The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is an iconic symbol of the Traverse City region, a splendid high rise, towering above an expansive golf course, and visible across the scenic Grand Traverse Bay. It’s also one of the most illustrious and luxurious getaways in northern Michigan, with a slew of shops, a restaurant with one of the finest views in town, and a five-star hotel being just a few of the attractions. Now, thanks to Team Elmer’s and their numerous partners, the resort has a five-star parking lot as well.

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.

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.


I-75 Culvert

I-75 is a central freeway in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, from the crossing at the Mackinac Bridge all the way up north to the Canadian border. So when two large culverts on the portion of I-75 between Sault Ste. Marie and Dafter reached the end of their usable service life, getting them replaced quickly and efficiently was essential. Team Elmer’s competitive bid was awarded the construction contract by MDOT to remove the 50-year old culverts and replace them with newer models.

Indiana County Line Landfill

Republic Waste had a short timeline and a tall order to fill – constructing a new seven-acre landfill cell with 193,550 cubic yards of earth excavation. Team Elmer’s answered the challenge, travelling all the way to Indiana, ensuring perfect conditions were met in creating an addition to the Hoosier State’s County Line Landfill.

Kids Creek Restoration

Team Elmer’s was hired to restore a section of Kids Creek to its natural, and functioning, state by removing the excess sediment and expanding the flood plain to create a natural storage area for excess storm water. 

King's Challenge Golf Course

When new owners set their sights on King’s Challenge golf course in Cedar, they knew they wanted to create a world-class golf destination and needed it to be done quickly. Bob Kuras, president of The Homestead in Glen Arbor and the man named to head the operation, enlisted trusted contractors like Team Elmer’s to ensure flawless completion at a breakneck pace.

Kohler: The Most Challenging Driveway

Begin with the fact that the proposed driveway was to be 1,200 feet long -- with a 124 foot rise in elevation leading to the home (with a fantastic view of Grand Traverse Bay!) Next, consider that time, money, and regulations were all limited. But no problem for our dynamic duo of Eric Sanborn and Jack Morris!

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.

Lowering LaFranier Road

South Airport Road is one of Traverse City, Michigan's busiest roads—a street that not only houses the entrances to Cherry Capital Airport and a slew of businesses, but one that many residents also use as an east-west traffic corridor to access to the outer Traverse City area. Until recently, South Airport Road at Lafranier Road also played host to a less desirable feature: one of Traverse City's most dangerous intersections.
