Some big construction projects are going to close City street lanes and sidewalks for the next few, well, years.
Northbound State Street between Washington and Huron
Beginning in early March, both northbound lanes on State Street between Washington and Huron streets were closed. Northbound traffic is being detoured on westbound Washington to Division to Huron to State. Southbound State Street traffic is not affected. Lanes should open spring of 2010. The sidewalks adjacent to this project are also closed and crossing State can be difficult on foot because of the new turn lane.
Huron Street from Division(ish) to Fletcher
One east-bound lane of Huron Street from mid-block between Division and State streets to mid-block between State and Fletcher streets is closed until spring 2010. Two-way traffic will continue. Sidewalks adjacent to the project are closed.
One lane of East Washington Street is currently closed east of Division. Sidewalks adjacent to the project (on Division and East Washington) are closed. The North sidewalk on East Washington is also closed between Thayer and State. East Washington between Fletcher Street and Thayer Street will be completely closed from June 9 through July 8 for the Summer Festival.
Possible South Main Street
This has been approved by Council with strings attached. The City and the University are now working on the details. The lane closure is one lane on South Main from Stadium to Pauline. The lane will be reopened temporarily for the week of Art Fair 2008 and then permanently reopened Julyish of 2009.
Huron River Drive
Huron River Drive will be closed on and off for the next two years. They anticipate it will be closed from May-September of 2008 and again from May-September of 2009.
West Stadium from Pauline to Seventh
This street resurfacing and improvement project is scheduled to begin Fall of 2008, but may be postponed depending on the Stadium construction.
Local Street Resurfacing Projects
These projects will impact 22 city streets over the summer.
Looks like it might be the perfect time to Curb your Car.
