Road Construction Along Cottonwood Drive Begins Monday
If you normally use Cottonwood Drive during your daily commute, that’s about to change as they start road construction between Baldwin and Bauer.
The plan from the Ottawa County Road Commission is to widen Cottonwood drive to a 5 lane road, two lanes each direction with a turn lane. The plan is also at the Cottonwood and Baldwin intersection, to add a left turn lane, making 2 turn lanes for both north and southbound lanes as well a right turn lane southbound.
The portion of Cottonwood closed south of Baldwin is supposed to open mid-June. They’ll be working on the section north of Baldwin until November according to the Ottawa Co Road Commission. They also say they won’t close the intersection of Cottonwood and Bauer until they start “Phase 2” of the project on June 9th.
