2017 Paving projects in St. Louis

We are happy to announce our 2017 paving projects in the City of St. Louis. The City Council has recently approved work to be done to the following streets:

These Streets will be pulverized with repairs and repaved starting in early May and completed by June 30th, 2017.

Euclid Street from Railroad tracks south to Hazel Street

East Tyrell Street from Franklin east to East Street

Lincoln Street from Washington south to East Tyrell Street

South Clinton Street from Washington south to the Railroad tracks


These streets will have asphalt over lays or wedge repairs starting in early May and completed by June 30th, 2017.

East Prospect from Main Street east to North Union Street

North Union from River Court north to East Prospect Street (near TSN School)

West Prospect Street from Corinth Street west to Hebron Street

This project will have intermittent road closures but local traffic will be able to access the areas.


The City also has an MDOT project to reconstruct the following streets with new curb, sidewalks, water and sewer upgrades and new asphalt pavement starting the end of May with completion before October.

West Prospect Street from Main Street east to Corinth Street then north on Corinth to Olive road.

This project will be closed to through traffic but will keep access for area residents


Admittedly road construction is inconvenient at times but we ask your patience while we work hard to make our streets better for everyone.


If you have any questions please call me at 989-681-3644.  Thank you.

Mark Abbott, Superintendent of Public Works


Small Town America is alive and well in the middle of Michigan, in the historic City of St. Louis!


St. Louis, the “Middle of the Mitten,” is a picturesque small town that serves its residents, neighbors and travelers with convenient shopping, eating options and a safe, clean walkable environment. 


The “Geographic Center of the Lower Peninsula,” St. Louis is located right on M-46 only two miles east of US-127.  The town has a fascinating history including once being home to the Magnetic Mineral Springs and bath house, two opera houses and a historic hotel.  Much of St. Louis historic business district architecture has been preserved and many turn of the century buildings are still in use as businesses and shops.  An array of Victorian homes can be seen right along M-46 in the heart of town, including the magnificent “Elwell Castle” on the corner of M-46 and Delaware Streets.  The City has made application to have a portion of North Mill Street be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 


Over the past several years the City has been hard at work on economic development, downtown and Brownfield projects to build an outstanding core to the City.  Evidence of this is the improvement in the Central Business District of North Mill Street and M-46 where you can see a $350,000 MDOT Enhancement Project as well as a $750,000 parking lot and alleyway improvement project that was completed in 2003.  Victorian lighting with underground electric, installed by the City’s own Electric Department, highlights the area along with landscaping, trees, new paving, flowers and more.  Two Brownfield projects has brought a private investment of over $1 million to downtown and several other sites are being cleaned up for possible redevelopment.  2015 will see the construction of a new City Hall which will house City offices as well as the St. Louis Police Department.  This will be a rehabilitation and re-use of the former St. Louis IGA building on the north end of downtown.
