Closure of 32nd Street Between Breton and Shaffer in Effect

Full Closure of 32nd Street SE Between Breton and Shaffer Starts May 3 

Road Will Be Closed for Reconstruction Through August

Starting Monday, May 3, 32nd Street SE between Breton and Shaffer avenues will be closed for reconstruction through August.

Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead and seek an alternate route or follow the posted detour that uses 29th Street. Access to homes and businesses within the project area will be maintained with intermittent impacts. Trash and mail service also will be maintained throughout the project.

This Michigan Department of Transportation project will include new pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalk and storm sewer. Local engineering firm Prein&Newhof will oversee the construction on the City’s behalf.

“This section of 32nd Street has deteriorated to the point that major rehabilitation is necessary,” Kentwood City Engineer Brad Boomstra said. “The contractor will work to minimize traffic disruption whenever possible as we improve the roadway.”

Community members may sign up to receive biweekly updates on the City’s road construction projects. To sign up for these updates, contact Boomstra at or 616.554.0740.
