GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Getting to your local brews may be a little difficult at times this summer.
Road construction began this week in the streets surrounding Founders Brewing. Bartlett Street, Williams Street and Finney Avenue SW will all have closures through October, according to the city of Grand Rapids.
The $3.2 million project includes rebuilding the roads and curb, installing porous pavement parking and ornamental street lighting, replacing water mains and sewers, upgrading sidewalks and ramps, and installing planters and 78 street trees.
Access to Founders' parking lot will be open from at least one direction during the construction. Customers are encouraged to bike, walk or take the bus too.
The project is funded by an MDOT grant that was secured as a result of Founders' expansion and addition of jobs.
