Public meeting set to discuss repairing Plymouth and Green roads in Ann Arbor

By Erica Hobbs

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:

• Milling existing asphalt roadway surface, repairing underlying pavement and roadway base and placing a new asphalt surface.

• Removing and replacing sections of concrete curb and gutter and repairing storm sewer catch basins and other utility manholes.

• 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.

Glad to see some work on the roads. Next up should be Packard Road between Carpenter and Stone School. Sections of that road are reverting to rubble.

These infrastructure improvements are great. I would like to see bus shelters at the busier bus stops. I feel sorry for the folks who have to wait out in the weather for the bus. I believe that structures would increase as well.

Green Road heavy traffic is from Hubbard to Plymouth Rd resulting in a tooth shattering, kidney jarring road surface. This is only 1 block more than Baxter to Plymouth. Why not do Hubbard to Plymouth rather than doing it later. It will have to be done at some point.

you have to start somewhere. In this day who has the money to do it all at once. better Question why are you so negative in all the comments I have read that you have made. the cities do the best they can with what they have. I'm sure they would take your donation to go all the way to Glazier, Don't worry be Happy.

Why will Green Road be repaired only from Plymouth to Baxter. The road surface between Baxter and Glazier is equally as beat up,and in need of major repair as the section from Plymouth to Baxter.
