Local road construction, road closure updates


The City of Ann Arbor will be performing minor rehabilitation work to the existing segmental block walls along Huron Parkway from approximately 1,000 feet south of Washtenaw Avenue to East Huron River Drive in order to keep them in a state of good repair.
The work to be performed consists of removing and replacing the cap units, cleaning the walls and installing a sealer on the walls to help prevent damage from road salt.

Only one lane of traffic will be closed at any given time during the non-peak travel hours of 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during the course of the project. It is expected that the contractor will first work on the westerly side of Huron Parkway to complete repairs and then switch their operations to work on the easterly side of the roadway.

Huron Parkway will not be obstructed during the morning or evening rush hours during the project. It will also be necessary to close the sidewalk on the side of the roadway on which the contractor is working in order to allow the room needed to safely perform the work.

From 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 30, 2017, the following roads will be closed for the Electric Bolt 8K Run/Walk:

  • Wall Street between Canal and Maiden Lane Court.
  • Canal Street between Wall and Maiden Lane Court.
  • Longshore Drive from Barton Drive to the Argo Park entrance.
  • Argo Drive at Longshore Drive.
  • Indianola at Longshore Drive.
  • Amherst at Longshore Drive.
  • Northern lanes of Beakes from East Summit to 4th Avenue.
  • 4th Avenue from Beakes to Farmers Market.
  • Kingsley between North Main and 5th Avenue.

Also note that the temporary traffic control plan for South Forest Avenue between Washtenaw Avenue and South University has resumed and will be in place through Monday, Aug. 14, 2017. (The project, which began in May, had been paused during the Ann Arbor Art Fair.)
Southbound South Forest is being detoured south on Washtenaw to west on South University. Northbound and local traffic is being maintained, as is pedestrian through-traffic on one side of the street.

A project underway at 611 E. University Ave. will require work within the Church Street right-of-way between South University Avenue and Willard Street Monday, July 31–Friday, Aug. 4. Southbound Church Street will be closed between South University Avenue and Willard Street during this timeframe. Traffic will be detoured to westbound South University Avenue to southbound East University Avenue to eastbound Willard Street back to Church Street. Pedestrian traffic will be maintained in the area.
