Pigeon River project running ‘on-budget’
CASEVILLE – The Pigeon River project is “on-track” and “on-budget,” said Huron County Drain Clerk Kristie Koroleski during a recent meeting of the Pigeon River Intercounty Drain Drainage Board.
The Board met on Wednesday, June 12 at the Caseville Township Hall. Michael Gregg, with the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development, chaired the meeting.
Brad Brenske, inspection and testing supervisor, with BMJ Engineers & Surveyors, presented a slideshow of recent work at various sites, some near and around the Caseville area.
The board learned that a new bridge, to be installed in Caseville, is on order and that work is expected to begin sometime after Labor Day.
John Nichol, president of Nichol & Sons Inc., contractor for the project, said during the meeting that recent rains caused a bit of a slowdown due to wet and muddy conditions.
After the meeting, Nichol told the Huron County VIEW that although efforts were hampered by recent rains causing muddy conditions, he has “no complaints.”
Nichol said, “It was a good winter with not a lot of snow” and that crews had made good progress. “It all evens out.”
The board set the next meeting for Wednesday, July 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the Caseville Township Hall, 6767 Main St., Caseville.
