Project Details

The Indian Grove Lift Station and service area surrounding Monroe Boulevard had a history of heavy wet weather I/I.  These flows contributed to  Sanitary Sewer Overflows along Monroe Boulevard corridor as well as the City Center.  From 2011 to 2017, Abonmarche worked with the City and Michigan Department of the Environment, Great Lakes and Energy to develop a project plan and obtain SRF funding assistance, and implement projects like the Monroe Boulevard Reconstruction Project.

The Monroe Boulevard Reconstruction Project involved lift station and force main replacement, new storm water drainage facilities, sanitary sewer rerouting, water main, and roadway reconstruction with corridor improvements to address bicycle and pedestrian roadway users. Abonmarche led the process of design and public participation to ensure the finished work was well-suited to its setting along the Lake Michigan Shoreline and within Luxury Residential Development.  The process involved multiple options, winter construction, extensive landscaping and plantings, and weekly tailgate talks to communicate construction progress with affected residents.
