Construction work starts Monday at Seventh and West Stadium in Ann Arbor
Seventh Street at West Stadium Boulevard on Ann Arbor's west side will see construction work starting Monday, using federal stimulus and city street resurfacing millage dollars to fund the project.
The work will likely wrap up by Sept. 4, and drivers are advised to find an alternate route for the next six weeks.
City officials say the upcoming work is part of the West Stadium improvements project from Suffolk to Hutchins. A water main and sewer will be installed, and the Seventh Street intersection will be reconstructed with new curb, sidewalk and road pavement.
The work will require temporary closings of Seventh Street, alternating between the south side and north side, the city said.
The south side closure will be first, and that closure is expected to last two weeks. During that time, northbound Seventh Street will be closed at the intersection, and southbound Seventh traffic will be permitted to turn westbound only at West Stadium Boulevard. West Stadium Boulevard traffic will only be able to travel westbound across the intersection.
The north side closure will follow the south side closure and is expected to last four weeks. During that time, southbound Seventh Street will be closed at the intersection, and northbound Seventh Street traffic will be permitted to turn westbound only at West Stadium Boulevard. West Stadium traffic will only be able to travel westbound across the intersection.
Delays are expected, and motorists are advised to avoid the area. Traffic signs and other devices will be posted to notify and direct those near the construction zone.
