Local residents may want to find alternate routes or plan for delays while driving through the Village of Kalkaska this summer, after the recent start of a more than $4-million water and sewer project. Work got underway on April 18 and included First Street (pictured above) earlier this week.

KALKASKA – The village manager for Kalkaska, Scott Yost, has been telling people for over a year that the summer of 2017 would be a very busy one locally.

And, now, that message is becoming a reality with the recent start to more than $4 million in improvements to village water and sewer infrastructure, designed to replace water and sewer lines that date back to the 1950s.

Yost informed members of the Kalkaska Village Council at its regular meeting Monday, April 24, that the project officially got underway on April 18 with work starting on West and Birch streets.

“They’ll be moving on from there,” Yost said. “(And) we arranged it so they would disturb the National Trout Festival the least.”
