Detours on Pontiac Trail in Ann Arbor start Thursday
City of Ann Arbor
The city announced a temporary traffic control plan that will be effective on Pontiac Trail from Amherst to Northside on Aug. 29-30, Sept. 3, and Sept.8, weather permitting.
As part of the Barton Drive resurfacing project, the intersection of Pontiac Trail/Barton Drive will be repaired and repaved.
Pontiac Trail will be closed to through traffic. The detour route for both northbound and southbound traffic will use Northside, Chandler, and Amherst.
Local access for vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic will be maintained.
As a safety precaution, city officials ask motorist to please reduce speeds and drive cautiously through work zones.
Barton Drive is being resurfaced between Pontiac Trail and Plymouth Road as part of the city's annual street resurfacing program. Since the work started in July, eastbound traffic has been maintained, while westbound traffic has been detoured.
The city also has been studying the possibility of adding a sidewalk along the south side of Barton Drive from west of Chandler Road to Longshore Drive.
