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.

Manistee Cedar Street Sewer Project

Previously, the city’s sanitary sewer and the storm sewer were two parts of one system. Both would flow to the Manistee Waste Water Treatment Facility for treatment, and additional storm sewer volume being treated would cost the taxpayers money. The problem was during a significant storm event, the treatment facility would be over capacity and overflow volumes would release both storm water and sanitary sewer water directly into the Manistee River.

Manistee High School Track

Manistee High School had all the ingredients for a great track team: terrific coach, talented athletes, plenty of drive. What the school didn’t have,
though, was an actual track. For years, the lack of facilities had left coaches scrambling to find places to practice. The Manistee High School track team
had only known what it was like to compete at away meets.

Manistee River Street Remediation

In the 20th century, if a building no longer served its purpose, it was torn down to make way for a new one. Fortunately, we’ve evolved, and many well-built, historic and beautiful buildings are getting facelifts and all-new, 21st century uses.

Marion: First Street Recontrsuction

Have you ever seen an alligator in Marion, Michigan? When water sits upon a roadbed for a prolonged period of time causing deterioration and cracking, in the hallways at Team Elmer’s, it’s referred to as “alligatoring.”

Martin Marietta: Helical Piers

Martin Marietta, a leading producer of high purity magnesium oxide and magnesium hydroxide products, was adding a new facility next to their existing vertical storage tank. The plans called for a 17-foot excavation at the face of the vertical storage tank to make room for the new construction.

McKeese Road Culvert Installation

In 2014, Team Elmer’s helped the Michigan Department of Transportation install an 11.5-foot, 8,000-bolt culvert on I-75, near Sault Ste Marie. As a result, when the Leelanau County Road Commission needed help with a similar culvert installation in the summer of 2015, we were the natural candidates for the job.

Michigan State University Library: Auger Cast Piles

The Main Library at Michigan State University serves as the center for the campus community’s knowledge base, on-campus-research, and quiet study. However, it houses many aging items that require temperature and humidity control for their preservation. This is accomplished using devices called steam absorption chillers, which create chilled water for the building's air-conditioning system.

Northport Marina: Emergency Dredging

It was the spring 2013, after several years of mild winters and dry summers, that the Village of Northport applied for a grant to dredge the local G. Marsten Dame Marina. The area hadn’t been dredged since the early 1990s, and local officials were concerned that if the trend of dipping water levels continued for another two or three years, it would render the marina unusable. 

Oleson's Food Store: Grading & Paving

Oleson’s Food Store, when building their grocery store on the corner of Three Mile and Hammond Road, got off to a late start with permitting delays. Still trying to meet an early spring opening, Team Elmer’s stepped up to the task, getting this project back on track.

Otsego Lake State Park: Pervious Concrete

And you thought concrete was made to be tough and impenetrable...well, it is! A type of concrete that's actually designed to be porous has the State of Michigan and others taking note as they seek ways to save land, dollars, and the environment.

Petoskey Retaining Wall

In 2019, the Michigan Department of Transportation plans to reconstruct a stretch of US-31 near Petoskey. Part of the highway runs along the edge of a steep slope, and the area is plagued with erosion problems. The 2019 highway reconfiguration will move part of the roadway so that it isn’t situated right on the edge of a slope. However, until then, MDOT needed a temporary solution to prevent erosion and protect the well-traveled highway. Enter Team Elmer’s.
