Public meeting set to discuss repairing Plymouth and Green roads in Ann Arbor
The City of Ann Arbor is hosting a public meeting to discuss improvements to segments of Plymouth and Green roads.
The project would improve pavement conditions on Plymouth Road from Nixon Road to US-23 and Green Road from Plymouth Road to Baxter. Funding would come primarily from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and construction would take place in the spring and summer of 2010.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 17 in the Clague Middle School cafeteria at 2616 Nixon Road. Staff will be available to answer questions.
Project elements include:
â€¢ Milling existing asphalt roadway surface, repairing underlying pavement and roadway base and placing a new asphalt surface.
â€¢ Removing and replacing sections of concrete curb and gutter and repairing storm sewer catch basins and other utility manholes.
â€¢ Reconstructing sidewalk ramps to meet current ADA standards, installing mid-block pedestrian crossings, placing new concrete pads at the AATA bus stops and improving pedestrian traffic signals.
Planners also are considering a four-lane to three-lane conversion on Green Road to include bike lanes and a center left turn lane.
