$1.7M construction project on Packard Street to begin Monday
Amy Biolchini | AnnArbor.com
Packard Street is three lanes at the northern end of the construction zone by Coler Road and expands to four lanes near Eastover Place and Jewett Avenue.
From just south of Coler Road to just west of Eisenhower Road, crews contracted by the city of Ann Arbor will be converting the entire portion to be three lanes wide with bike lanes in both directions.
Sidewalk ramps will be replaced, and the following sections of sidewalk will be replaced with a five-foot-wide path: On the east side of Packard Street between Eastover Place and Independence Boulevard, and on the south side of Packard Street near Shady Lane.
The project is one of several capital improvement projects the city is completing this construction season.
Work is set to begin Monday and will last from 10 to 12 weeks until approximately the end of October.
During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and pedestrians will be able to use at least one side of the street. Access for businesses and residents along Packard Street will be maintained.
At certain points during the project, Stone School Road will be closed at Packard Street.
The $1.7 million project is funded through the city’s street millage fund and federal grant dollars.
