Informational meeting on Main Street construction project planned for Thursday in Dexter

By Lisa Allmendinger

A roughly $250,000 project to resurface Main Street from Baker Road to Jeffords in Dexter is expected to begin April 16 and last about six weeks.

There will be about four weeks of road closures involved with the road project.

Dexter residents can get a preview of the construction project at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Dexter Senior Center, 7720 Ann Arbor St.

Included in the project is the addition of stamped, colored concrete crosswalks throughout the downtown. However, the crosswalk near the former Dexter Pharmacy to Huron Camera will be removed.

The project is expected to begin April 16 and road closures are expected through May 12. “During construction, one-way traffic heading eastbound will be maintained on Main Street,” according to a letter from Donna Dettling, village manager.

Parking downtown will be limited “and in most instances completely unavailable in front of the storefronts due to the construction,” the letter states.

It’s expected that the project will be completed by low bidder Pro-Line Asphalt Paving of Washington Township by Memorial Day.
