2-month resurfacing project on South State Street in Ann Arbor begins Monday
The city of Ann Arbor plans to begin a two-month project next Monday to resurface South State Street from Oakbrook Drive to Eisenhower Parkway.
During the project, traffic along the 0.3-mile stretch will be reduced to two lanes — one northbound and one southbound.

The project, one of a number of resurfacing projects this year in Ann Arbor, includes resurfacing of the road pavement to eliminate potholes and increase the service life of the road. It also includes the replacement of sidewalk ramps to comply with the Americans with Disability Act.
Local access for vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic is expected to be maintained except when vehicular traffic might be temporarily restricted due to paving or concrete work. City officials said businesses will be notified if a driveway is affected.
Pedestrian traffic will be maintained on at least one side of the street during the project.
To maintain the safety of all, city officials ask drivers to reduce speeds and drive cautiously through work zones. The work is being completed by Barrett Paving Materials.
A portion of South State Street north of Henry Street to north of Rose Avenue was reconstructed last year as part of the Stadium bridges project. As part of that project, State Street was closed to northbound traffic, which won't be the case with this year's work.
