Crews to fully reconstruct portion of Second Street in Jackson


Efforts to repair streets and replace aging infrastructure are ramping up in the City of Jackson. Construction on a residential street in Jackson’s Under the Oaks neighborhood is set to begin Tuesday, May 28. One block of Second Street between Washington Avenue and Wildwood Avenue will receive a total reconstruction.

This section of Second Street hasn’t received substantial repairs in decades. Potholes and uneven pavement make driving or walking on this street difficult. Crews will first remove the total depth of pavement to install new water main and sanitary sewer piping. Any lead water pipes that are discovered during construction will be replaced and documented to comply with the State of Michigan’s new Lead and Copper Rule. Once that is complete, work will then move above ground to install new curbs, gutters and sidewalks. The street will receive a fresh layer of pavement, along with new decorative lighting.  

Construction is expected to be completed toward the end of June. When under construction, Second Street will be closed to through traffic but will remain open to local traffic so residents can use their driveways within the work zone. Residents should expect some inconveniences during construction, such as noise and dirt, construction equipment in the street and temporarily blocked driveways. Residents are also asked to not park on the street in the construction area during construction work hours.
