GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A long list of Grand Rapids streets are scheduled for repaving in 2015, according to notices released by the city recently. Several major arteries are scheduled for improvements, along with many side streets.

The actual dates cannot be determined, says the city, because weather, availability of crews and equipment cannot be predicted. But when work begins, contractors are required to finish within 14 days and do what they can to allow local access and trash/recycling pickup.

These projects are expected to be finished by June 27 at a total cost of $2,727,759:

  • Kalamazoo Avenue (44th to 42nd)
  • Chamberlain Avenue (Mayberry to 28th)

  • Birchcrest Drive (28th to Saginaw)
  • Cottage Grove Street (Division to Jefferson)
  • Dickinson Street (Linden to Eastern)
  • Linden Avenue (Dickinson to Cottage Grove)

These projects are scheduled to be finished by July 18, the continuation of a contract worth $3,691,025:

  • Leonard Street (Hillburn to Country Club Drive)
  • Leonard Street (Oakleigh to Powers)
  • Alpine Avenue (Leonard to Richmond)
