Monthlong construction on Barton Drive beginning July 22
Westbound traffic on Barton Drive in Ann Arbor between Pontiac Trail and Plymouth will be detoured for construction Monday, July 22 through Aug. 31.
Vehicles will be routed around the closed area by way of Plymouth Road, Moore Street and Pontiac Trail.
Eastbound traffic and local access for vehicle and pedestrian traffic will be maintained. At least one side of the street will be open to pedestrians at all times.
Residents will be notified in advance if access to their driveway will be temporarily affected.
Work on Barton Drive will include repaving of the road to eliminate pot holes and increase the service life of the road. Storm water inlets, some concrete curb and sidewalk ramps will be replaced.
