The Michigan Street reconstruction project which was originally scheduled to start on July 6, 2020 will begin on Monday, March 30, 2020. During this time the road, portions of the storm sewer, sidewalk and curbing will be replaced between Oak and Washington Streets. Site amenities such as benches, trash cans, and pedestrian lighting will follow later in the summer due to lead time in ordering materials.
This civil construction project is classified as critical work as outlined in Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-21. Starting this project earlier while traffic levels are lower will decrease the length of disruption to those along this corridor.
Michigan Street between Oak and Washington Streets will be closed to through traffic starting on March 30, 2020.
