United Contractors Midwest (UCM) will complete the southwest island by next Wednesday, June 21st. The City of Macomb Public Works Department will continue to work on back-filling the northwest and southwest corner islands with dirt next week, as well. The construction material and debris will be cleaned up and the back-filling of the islands will be completed before the Heritage Days celebration scheduled for June 22nd-24th. Construction will resume the following week of June 26th, with the removal of the southeast island and installation of the storm sewer in the southeast quadrant.
