What is the South Shore Drive Reconstruction project all about?

Holland BPW and the City of Holland are working jointly to upgrade the infrastructure on South Shore Drive. South Shore Drive will be undergoing an extensive update this spring/summer including water main work, sanitary sewer and storm sewer work, ADA sidewalk ramps and reconstruction of the roadway.

When will work begin on South Shore Drive?

The South Shore Drive Reconstruction project has been undergoing development since Aprilk 2017. 

After Labor Day, the section of South Shore Drive from Azalea to 17th St. closed for construction.  The pavement will remain largely intact as spot work is completed. There will be times when spot work will cross South Shore Drive and temporarily close through access. The pavement is tentatively scheduled for complete removal and replacement at the end of September. Completion is scheduled for early October.

Will I be able to access my home? 
Although the road will be closed to thru-traffic, residents will typically  be able to access their driveways and homes. However, there will be periods of construction while the contractor is replacing utilities directly in front of a home, curb or sidewalk concrete curing, paving is in progress, or other events that may prevent residents from direct access to their driveways. 
 
What about the dust? 
We are working on measures to minimize dust in the area.
