Rolling on Pine River

At Team Elmer’s, we pride ourselves on our ability to overcome any obstacle we encounter. When we were tasked with getting 1,100 tons of 8-inch stone down a 70-foot vertical slope, we had to adapt to get the job done. Faced with the seemingly simple errand of digging up two feet of mud and soil and arranging fabric and rock from the top of the slope to the river’s edge, the topography quickly became treacherous.

Sara Lee Concrete Floor Replacement

Sara Lee, known for their pies and baked goods, has a bakery plant located in Traverse City. When the factory needed a new recipe for their floors, Team Elmer’s provided the main ingredients: floor cutting with fugitive dust control and ready mix concrete.

Silver Creek Trout Habitat

It’s not every day that a company has the privilege of establishing miles of new natural animal habitat. But thanks to a partnership between the Conservation Resource Alliance (CRA), Lake County Road Commission, Wade-Trim, and Team Elmer’s, hundreds of thousands of fish and other species now have miles of new tributaries and spawning habitat along the Silver Creek outside Cadillac.

Silver Drive at Grand Traverse Commons

When Team Elmer’s was contracted to work on the Silver Drive project – revamping a little-used road near the south end of the Grand Traverse Commons and connecting it to Silver Lake Road in order to generate a southern entrance to the Commons – we were prepared for a messy job. A wetland environment and a profusion of deep muck meant more attention to detail was critical for completing this complicated job.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail: Phase I

Good Morning America viewers named Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as the Most Beautiful Place in America. Thanks in part to Team Elmer’s, that pristine coastline will now have a handicap-accessible, family-friendly trail -- open to wheelchair bound nature enthusiasts, families with strollers, and novice bicycle riders averse to motorized traffic.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail: Phase II

Two years ago, Team Elmer’s broke ground on one of the highest profile projects in our history, a 27-mile, non-motorized trail designed to wind along the widely renowned Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The project, which was funded in part by both the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Authority, was always going to be a massive undertaking. A marathon-length, paved trail that would allow bikers, joggers, hikers, and other non-motorized adventurers a spot to explore this beautiful environment in leisure, away from both sand and road.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail: Phase III

A few years ago, the National Park Service began a mammoth undertaking, to construct a 27-mile non-motorized trail in Northern Michigan's famed Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Team Elmer’s submitted the low bid to construct the first three phases of the award winning trail, working with the Michigan Department of Transportation and Friends of the Sleeping Bear Dunes to complete the task.

South Airport Road Reconstruction

South Airport Road is one of the most travelled roadways in Traverse City and is routinely operating at or above capacity. After years of heavier-than-anticipated traffic, South Airport Road from US-31 to Veterans Drive was in need of a complete reconstruction. Team Elmer’s came in as the low bidder on the project and was ready to take on the challenges.

South Manitou Island Fuel Tank Replacement

Sometimes, Mother Nature just doesn’t want to cooperate. Such was the case for Team Elmer’s as we prepared to transport a massive aboveground fuel storage tank from the docks of Ironton, Michigan to the shores of South Manitou Island. The 12,000 gallon tank, used to hold diesel fuel to run the Island’s generators and equipment, was intended to replace a rundown unit of the same vein on South Manitou.

St. Ignace 1-75 Reconstruction

On a recent job in St. Ignace, Michigan, Team Elmer’s crews were a long way from home. Over 80 miles of road and bridge stretched between the Team Elmer’s offices in Hillman and the project worksite in St. Ignace, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The distance proved challenging as Team Elmer’s crews worked to rebuild a deteriorated one-mile stretch of I-75.

Traverse Area Recreational and Transportation Trail (TART)

Northern Michigan is known for many things – beautiful vistas, lakes for fishing and boating, wildlife, agriculture and farming – cherries most specifically. When you hear the term tart – you usually think of cherry pie - but that does not always apply. The TART Trail is a network of paths throughout the Traverse City region that allows pedestrians and bikers alike to enjoy the peaceful vistas of our area without worrying about traffic signals and road enraged motorist. The trail system will expand to eventually include several recreational trails reaching beyond Williamsburg to Suttons Bay.

Traverse City Area Public Schools

When the Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) faced a complicated parking and traffic issue with a very tight deadline at one of its middle schools, the call went out and Team Elmer’s answered.
