Residents living in one Mid-Michigan neighborhood are fed up with a noisy construction project.

While the work is being done to clean up an environmental hazard on the property, those living around the project have had enough of the constant noise.

"You hear a lot of knocking, metal hitting metal, the floors and stuff shaking, and it gets a little noisy. This is the first time it's actually been quiet," said Phillip Russell, lives in the neighborhood of the construction project.

The construction is on the corner of Woodbridge and Houghton Street in Saginaw.

"They'll be out here for a long time. You leave for a couple of hours, go to work, come back, and it's still going on," Russell said.

The construction is at the site of a former gas station. Tim Novak, with the Saginaw County Landbank, said the land became contaminated when fuel tanks were removed from the ground.

Construction crews have to dig up at least 15 feet to reach the contaminated soil.

"You can just feel it shaking," Russell said.

Novak said the worst of the shaking should be over, but there will likely be more noise and heavy construction equipment as digging continues.
