The latest schedule for the $22.8 million project shows the work beginning after the Ohio State game against the University of Michigan at the end of November.
The project includes removal and replacement of the existing Stadium bridge spans over State Street and the nearby Ann Arbor Railroad tracks, staircase construction at two locations on State Street, pedestrian tunnel extensions, installation of retaining walls and replacement of storm sewer and water main, and enhancements to Rose White Park.
Stadium will be reconstructed from Kipke Drive to South Industrial Highway and State will be reconstructed from Henry Street to Rose Avenue.
South State Street is expected to be closed Nov. 28 through Dec. 13 in the vicinity of the project. That's when crews will demolish the bridge span there and install needed storm and sanitary sewers that will be utilized in subsequent phases of the project.
