Sugarbrook Neighborhood Water Supply Improvements (Design Phase)

Water supply system improvements are being designed for the Sugarbrook Neighborhood in the Charter Township of Ypsilanti.  The project will replace existing old and mostly undersized water mains.  The water supply system improvements will be constructed in advance of planned road and drainage improvements being implemented by the Washtenaw County Road Commission on behalf of the Township.

M-17 & US-12 Water Main Improvements (2022-2023)

US12YCUA’s improvements to both existing water and wastewater utilities within the M-17 and US-12 corridors in the City of Ypsilanti are now substantially complete. With the underground construction essentially done, the replacement of the curbs and pavement surfaces disturbed during the pipe work is underway. Michigan Avenue and those portions of the connecting side streets will be restored first and, weather permitting, should be completed within the next several weeks.  Areas disturbed by the pipe work in the alleyways and parking lots north and south of Michigan Avenue will then be restored with that work anticipated to be complete by Labor Day.
